A: The beer is hazy yellowish amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation along with some small yeast particles near the edge of the glass. It poured with a finger high off white head that has good retention properties and consistently left a quarter finger high head covering the surface. The beer became murkier as the yeast from the bottom of the bottle got poured out.
S: Light to moderate aromas of sour lingonberries are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell but seems a little more medicinal than sour and also has some hints of vinegar. The lingonberries taste a little like cranberries but weren't nearly as tart.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and slightly tart on the palate and has a moderate to high amount of carbonation.
O: This beer wasn't nearly as sour as I expected it to be for an American Wild Ale and tasted like a spritzy sour berry drink.

P: 16.9 fl oz bottle in to a New Belgium snifter.

A: SRM is raspberry red. Translucent. Head is off-white with light red tinge, 4 in, tightly packed small bubbles quickly dissipate to 1 cm. Over-carbonated (gusher). Light/medium lacing.

S: True to form wild ale smell. Tart, a bit of funk, smoothed over with some fruit notes. Light sweetness.

T: Tart/sour hits the initial palate, followed by cranberry, then a much more natural and bitter cranberry flavor, finished by alcohol warmth. Aftertaste is tart cranberry with some light sweetness in the middle and front palate, but bitterness on the back of the palate that lingers.

M: Medium/light body. Sour/tart notes give a typical wild ale and excites the palate. Bitter notes detract from the natural cranberry notes. Yes, cranberry is naturally bitter, but this tastes overly bitter imo. Very interesting finish. Outer palate has a bone dry finish, but middle of palate finished wet, giving a salivating effect.

O: Interesting and good, but to me the big bitter notes turn me off. The bitterness really seems to linger on my palate and is not that pleasurable. Otherwise, this beer is quite good. Glad I tried it.

Thanks goes to sweemzander for sharing...I guess.

Gusher alert! Amber orange. Solid two fingers of white head. The aroma is a bit off putting. Brett soaked pool toys, mixed with cough syrup and peptol bismo. Yuck. The flavors are not any better. It's like a mouthful of wet used band aids soaked in crappy cherry cough syrup and pepto. Loads of carbonation. This was a sick joke to play on people.

Effervescent, quickly constructed, big head made of tiny bubbles. Bright jack-o-lantern orange. No lace but consistent layer of tiny bubbles.

Aroma is cranberry seltzer mojito? Sweet Tarts with a musty brett twist? Probably somewhere in between.

Musty, dull tart cranberry. Highly carbonated, overly I dare say. The fizz tickles my nose when I take a sip. Better once I aclimated to the effervescence.

Probably my first and only beer brewed with lingonberries. Lingonberries are Nordic death metal cranberries.

! Gusher warning !

-had to let this one breathe real slow by slowly opening the cap, letting it sit and his for a few mins, and repeat.

A: Pours explosively effervescent, much like one of those firework snakes you light that grows and grows. The head seemed to grow and recede wildly at the same time. ~2-3 inches produced immediately after the pour, then 1/2" retained. light brown/khaki head. Golden amber colored body with red notes. Very entertaining.

S: Could smell this strongly as soon as I cracked the cap. Immediate sticky stinky funk and puckering tartness filled my nares like a concentrated noxious gas. Cranberry sweet and tartness definitely on the forefront as well. Stinky feet as a tertiary smell.

T: A let down from the smell, but still decent for sure. It's lighter than I expected. Some toned down funk and toned down tartness with a little horseblanket, red wine, even some apparent peat/whiskey/piney presence that doesn't bode in its favor and also leaves a spicy pine nut like flavor on the finish.

M: Thin... damn it. Carbonation is good however, and not as voracious as I expected after cracking the cap and pouring. Only slightly filmy and acidic - not real issues though.

O: Was very excited about this until tasting, only to be let down... O well, you seemingly don't come by world class sours off the shelf for a reason. Prolly won't buy again for $14.99/500ml but worth the try.
