Cloudy dark fruit punch red color with dark purplish/plum edges and a two finger pinkish off-white head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Excellent retention, lingering throughout with large streaks of soapy lacing left behind. Looks great.

Interesting complex aroma with earthy resins countered by citric acidity and tart dark fruit sweetness. Slightly vegetal but the hop notes are slightly overpowered by acidity and tart cranberry bog presence. As it warms, the cranberries really stand out, dominating the aroma.

Full body with a slightly creamy texture and tart puckering acidity. Lots of sweet cranberry and vinous dark fruit bursting through with sour cherry skin and tart ocean spray cranberry juice. Puckering and sweet but there's a touch of musty funk and the hops stand out a bit more than in the nose. Slight bitterness with dry sticky resins countering making this unique beer pretty easy to drink.

Sampled at the Bruery 8th Anniversary celebration on 05/14 /16.

Refreshing and tart with subtle cranberry on the finish.
