Dark blood orange color. Cloudy. Minor head but it leaves thicker streaks.

I smell cinnamon initially. I get lavender soap and lighter cranberry. Slightly sweet. I did not pickup on any ginger or nutmeg.

Funky, I’m still getting some lavender soap on the tongue. The sour cranberry is stronger here. It tastes like a chilled mulled cider with rose hips. Tart cider finish.

Wow, what a bright, refreshing take on a holiday brew. Never thought I'd use the word refreshing on a Christmas beer! I'm not a big sour ale fan, but when I couldn't find any Celebration Ale or Harpoon WW at Total Wine, I saw this and thought WTH I'll try it. Plus I'm a big cranberry fan- not the sickly sweet gelled stuff out of a can, the real berries cooked down, without a ton of sugar, so very tart- and this beer delivers that, along with the cinnamon and nutmeg beautifully. Almost has a bit of a holiday punchbowl taste to it, but then the sour kicks your tastebuds out of your mouth. Delicious, glad I found it- and love the Grinch song reference in the name. ;-)

Pours a mainly clear reddish orange color with a finger width foamy head. Head retention is mild. Lacing is decent. Has a sour, cinnamon, and ginger aroma. Strong cinnamon on the taste with sourness and cranberry. Light bodied with mild carbonation. This is poured from crowler that is almost 6 months old.

It smells a little fruity. The scent is complex with the cranberry out front but the ginger and warm spices in the background.

What a combination of flavors. There's sour cranberry but also the ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg are all identifiable.

It's thin bodied with medium prickly carbonation. The finish is sour, then spicy with a hint of malt.

This is so good, probably my favorite sour I've had. Such a unique beer. I give it a 5.2 out of 6. A really cool experience.

Prairie Seasick Crocodile Fruited Sour, 6.3% ABV. Poured slightly-hazy light orange with a little-finger of white head that left no lacing. Nose is sourness, cinnamon, and faint nutmeg, taste is sourness and cinnamon, not picking up the advertised cranberries or other spices. Excellent mouthfeel with good carbonation. Overall excellent. I'm a fan of sweeter fruit puree sours, but trying to judge this to style, not to my preferences. Yup, it's sour, check.

Picked up a can of this at the gas station that has out of distro stuff for 2-3x its normal shelf price. But here we find a can at a reasonable price ($4) so we checked it out.

Pours a different shade of orange. Closer to an amber than bright orange. The aroma comes at you with that seasonal holiday profile, cranberry, nutmeg pushing the majority of weight. Then ginger. Didn't find cinnamon in the nose, but it pops up later.

Taste brings the ginger, nutmeg and cranberry to the forefront. The sourness is middle of the road intensity. Usual cranberry acidity, but not too bad. In fact, since cranberry is one of my least favorite adjuncts in a beer, that aspect of the beer actually exceeded expectations. There is enough light sweetness and cinnamon to temper it methinks.

Pretty decent beer. I wouldn't want to crush an entire 6 pack at once, but I think 4-12 oz of this is plenty easy to drink and especially on point during the holiday months.
