3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very light aroma, can tell it’s cranberry, pours a deep clear amber with a frothy head. Taste is an initial sweetness, finishes somewhat bitter. Has a light body, thin texture, fizzy carbonation on the tongue, finishes with a bitter aftertaste. Overall an ok beer. Not amazing, but a nice change of pace for the Thanksgiving season. Would probably split a six pack with a friend in the future.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 ounce bottle. Pours a deep copper color topped by a fluffy beige head. Aroma of toasted malt and sour fruit. Upfront, flavor is toasted malt and bitter fruit. Definately tastes of fresh cranberries, which are tart and bitter. Overall, a rather unusual paring of malt, hops and cranberries.

Bottle. Medium garnet amber with a small sticky white head. Nose is lemon dish soap, strawberry jolley rancher, nice cranberry. Mildly bitter, mild sweetness, a bit of cereal/grain, and fruity tannins. A bit watery and boring but certainly better than expected.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle picked up at Arlington Whole Foods and drank in TN. Middle of the roda fruit beer. You get a little tartness from the berries but they’re muted overall. Fine.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear ruby/amber color. Aroma is of malts and hops with a very slight cranberry and brown sugar scent. Light and carbonated palate but it does have a nicer body than expected. Flavors that come through are malts, hops, cranberry, and black cherry. Leaves a dry, dirty malt finish. Nothing special. What ever happened to Sam Adams? Too bad nobody knows that 80% of their beers are made in OHIO.
