    Day 10 of 24 beers of Christmas 2021.

    Pours with a bit of chill haze, at least that is what I am going to call it. Minimal snow white foam that recedes back almost as quickly as it is created. No lacing. The cranberry colors really come through, assuming the blood orange doesn't hurt. Color is a mix between pink and red.

    Aroma gives the typical berliner weiss type yeast scents. Tart yet sweet. Stating that I could pick up specific scents of cranberry or blood orange would make me a lier.

    Taste brings on the tartness of the beer while flavors of cranberry and hints of orange citrus seem to create a deeper tartness, almost sour.

    Light, refreshing body. Ample carbonation. Dry, puckering finish.

    Definitely a light beer for this time of the year. I like the limb that Metal Monkey was hanging from by making a non-seasonal style but using some seasonal ingredients (especially the cranberries). The beer doesn't doing any special but does them well enough. This beer would be fantastic in the summer. I would have this again. Enjoy!
