A very tasty fruit flavored goose cranberry really shines with tangerine bitterness. Has a good salty sour vibe not sure why the score is so low a very tasty Brew.

Welcome to my Happy New This Year & Beer Are Flying Outta Here On Sunday, Dog (Week 723)! This beer was part of their Last Minute Gift Pack & I was happy to find & buy it at the last minute on Thursday in anticipation of today.

From the Bottle: NOTHING! 8=(

I Pop!ped the cap & began a slow, gentle C-Line pour that resulted in a brief finger of fizzy, foamy, eggshell-white head with low retention, quickly falling away to wisps. Color was a solid Amber (SRM = > 7, < 9) with NE-quality clarity. Nose had a light sourness, slightly salty, but subdued in terms of the cranberry & tangerine which got top billing. Truth in advertising, I always say ... Mouthfeel was thin-to-medium, a few steps above & beyond watery. About par for the style. The taste was quite tart & now I could really taste the cranberry in addition to the inherent saltiness. Phew! Finish was quite dry and totally refreshing. It now occurs to me that they may have done something like this in their Brewhouse Rarities series. I just cannot help but think that it would be better suited for the Summer months. YMMV.

Aroma is tangerine/orange , malts and mild sweetness. The flavor is tangerine, big cranberry, fruit, malts/wheat and a mildly sweet/lingering tart finish.

Served in a wine glass

This beer pours burnt orange in color with a slight haze. It is topped with an inch of tan head that leaves very little lacing.

The smell is tart citrus. I can't really discern the tangerine or cranberry other than to call it citrus.

Now the taste is more easily dissected. It starts out tart. The tangerine comes through the middle and into the finish. The cranberry is in the finish and aftertaste.

Medium bodied with a dry mouthfeel

It tastes pretty good after mowing the lawn on a balmy 30 degree Thanksgiving Day. Now on to my Thanksgiving dinner for one.
