copper body, thin reddish head. definitive spice notes, christmasy, cranberry nose. fruity and sweet. thin amd flat in the mouth. strong spice flavor: nutmeg, rosemary, herbal. something odd. christmasy maybe some pine extract? Not a big fan myself, but somebody might like it, especially at 2.69/22oz.bottle

Bottle pours red, VERY red, with a small dishwater head.   Very light aroma of cranberries.   Initial taste is of lightyly unsweetened cranberries.   Mouthfeel is thin & watery.   Finish is extremely earthy & dusty.   Wishing this had a been a bit sweeter.   Definately not as good as Sam Adams Cranberry Lambic.

Whoa, I get to be the first!?! I don't think many people will be rushing out to buy it after this review. First, full disclosure: I usually don't like fruit or flavored beers and this is no exception. If you're into cranberries, you may love this. Pours a redish amber color with some head that left a bit of lace down the glass. Scent is of cranberries and malt. Taste is sour cranberries, and... <ponder>, well, it kind of reminds me of a thin wine cooler without the sweetness. Definately sour and bitter, but it's almost watery. Overall I'm not the slightest bit impressed. This reminds me of "bitch-pop" that high school kids buy for their girlfriends so they can get them drunk. "It's not beer, you'll like it!"
