COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed using locally-grown cranberries, this beer captures the spirit of a true New England Thanksgiving: the harvest celebration and the sharing of food amongst friends. Fermented with a traditional ale yeast that lets the cranberries provide the signature aroma, this beer is balanced by the ‘bready’ notes of the Vienna and Munich malts.

From a bottle poured a brown color with a small amount of head. Light malty flavor with a hint of cranberry.

Smooth and tasty beer with a little spicy kick on the end...good, but a little heavy to drink several of

Thanks to jcwattsrugger for the share. Cheers, John! Pours a clear brown with a white head. Nose is biscuity malt, berry, and a light bitterness. Flavor is similar with biscuity malt and very light bitterness. Lingering berry into the finish. Not my bag.

Clear copper color with no head. Aroma of cranberry and grain. Slight cranberry flavor with grain presence. Not much else to the beer.

Clear amber with thin off-white head; aroma is light and malty, as is the flavor; slight hint of fruit in the finish along with a dry yet sweet maltiness; feels fizzy. There is a hint of cranberry throughout. Not a bad beer. It kinda grew on me as I went through all 12 ounces.

Disappointing. Captures the the tannins of the cranberries more than anything. Very one-dimensional. Better when coupled with hearty or heavily-seasoned food.

Bottle at home. tulip at fridge temp. pours a 1 finger creamy head that doesn’t fade. Looks like burnt plums in the body. candied cranberry fake syrupy taste. tart on the nose. semi-sweet. Taste is very sweet up front, tart and dry at the finish. Middle is like cough syrup.

Thanks to TNT for picking this one up. Tasted on Thanksgiving and served in a sampler glass. Pours an auburn color. Nose has a nice cranberry tartness and backing malt. Flavor falls through with too much breadiness. Over the top malt with cranberry falling to the background. Nose was by far the best part of this one.

Odd greenish-red color (oak) with a thin head. Aroma is cranberry and spice. The cranberry taste is very light, a little more evident in the finish. Rather disappointing. It’s not horrible but my least favorite Harpoon to date.
