3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Malt, grass, and cranberry in the aroma. Standard malty flavor, with some sweet, acidic cranberry in the finish. I don’t think this should be categorized as a fruit beer--it’s more a fall seasonal--but I still like this beer a lot. It’s a lot better than the vile cranberry lambic from Sam Adams, for example.

Bottle. Pours amber with an off white head. The aroma has a light cranberry fruity sweetness, with light toasty malts. The flavor has a bready and toasted malty base, some light cranberry sweetness, low bitterness, and some grainy notes. Better than I expected it would be.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 ounce bottle from Total Wine and More in Huntersville, NC. The beer itself starts out impressive: it pours a nice dark amber/copper color with a little bit of a tan head. Aroma is surprising. I was expecting to get a lot of cranberry nose in this beer, but it was all rather muted, just a little bit of malt and the cranberry seems non existent. Taste is fruity with some malt notes and then a little bit of cranberry sneaks in on the end of it. Aftertaste is from the malt lingering on your taste buds. Overall, this is a nice beer, but I am a little disappointed it. I thought this beer would be refreshing, instead it was just another fruit beer with nothing that makes it stand out from the rest.

Poured a clear copper color with small white head and little lacing. Aromas of hay, with light notes of cranberries. Taste is sweet, not as much tartness as expected and though the cranberries are there, I expected more. Overall, pretty decent brew from the malts but was left wanting more cranberry flavor and more of an effervescent palate.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The aroma is malty and sweet with some hops but almost no detectable cranberries. The appearance is amber with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall a good to drink beer but does not live up to being a cranberry beer.
