Poured clear with an inch of pink-hued, white foam.
Retention was minimal leaving a thin layer on top of the beer. Lacing is below average leaving some blotchiness behind.
Aroma is tart, cranberry, with some balancing sweet. Acidic and a bit spice but both seem somewhat mild.
Taste is big on cranberries as should be expected. Tartness is there but not as big as I expected. There is a sweetness in the beginning of the taste that only grows in size throughout, culminating with the tart to give a heightened, almost sour taste.
Quite a bit of carbonation on high end of light body. A nice crispness.
Not that hard to drink but the sweetness does add up and eventually make it hard to session but I could definitely have a few more. Enjoy!
"Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, 'It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than selfish and worry about my liver.'" - Jack Handy
