    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!
