Interesting as a experiment I guess. Not a beer thats in my taste. Very tart, a bit or alcohol, taste of berries a bit uneven. Too much of a acidic taste of the cranberries. Tasted from a bottle from Sysrembolaget NK.

The colour is gold-orange with a tint of pink, the liquid is clear. The thin off-white head sinks quickly to a thin ring leaving no lacing.

The smell is dry with phenolic yeast, rubber, matured cheese and old spices. Sour fruity notes; lingonberries and sour cherries. Hints of alcohol.

The taste is very dry with a smooth fruity sweetness. Lingonberries and cranberries, hints of Belgian yeast and earth. The aftertaste brings growing fruity sour flavours reminding of sweetened cranberry juice. The short finish is dry with red berries. No alcohol what so ever.

The carbonation is medium strong, the small fresh bubbles tickles the tongue. The liquid is very dry.

I had this beer at a festival half a year ago, and I remember it as much dryer with more distinct berry notes. Still, it is an interesting beer.
