The perfect merging of tart cranberries and fresh maple syrup from Northumberland County, make this seasonal treat worth waiting the long winter for

Light yellow/gold w/ white head. Wheat & tart cranberries on the nose. Light, refreshing body. Flavour speaks of cranberries: lightly acidic, tart, yet sweet & thirst quenching.

dhurtubise (568) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - APR 9, 2003
A well put together little summer ale. It is a light coloured, tart refreshing little beer. The maple syrup is not really distinguishable (not surprising because you need a heck of alot to have an impact on the flavour profile) but the cranberry character comes through in the background.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 25, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2003 Very berry nose, hazy golden, with a medium white head. Cranberry, raspberry, wheat flavours. Sweet, full bodied, refreshing, a nice addition for them.

Oakes (15806) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 23, 2003
UPDATED: APR 25, 2004 Re-rate: April 24, Winking Judge, Hamilton: The 2004 edition of this beer has a lot more cranberry on the palate. It's refreshing, not particularly syrupy, but obfuscates the other elements. So it's a saw-off, really. I like it more because I like cranberries, but it's not as strong technically.

On tap at Smokeless Joe's. Straw colour; aroma of cranberries, almond skins, wheat; very nutty palate, tea-like at times, with hints of fruit providing an interesting backdrop. Light, refreshingly wheaty finish. Not really to my taste, but I have to respect that this is a well-structured, technically proficient, balanced beer. Ar:6, Ap:2, Fl: 6, P:4, O:12
