Deep brown with a red tint. Malty, sweet cranberry burst in the aftertaste. Very nice. Typically fine Harpoon offering.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2010 Appearance is brownish and slightly red. The aroma is weak with a slight hint of fruit. Lacing is Sheets that disappear quickly as does the off-white head. Carbonation remains throughtout the drink and is mildly fizzy. While slight, cranberry is obvious in the taste. Frankly, I miss Sam Adams Cranberry Lambic, which was taken out of the Winter Classics. Oh, well, they did not ask me.

Better than expected, this beer from Harpoon carries a slight cherry/berry flavor with the malt. There is an aftertaste that is slightly unpleasant, with this same "aftertaste" being present in the aroma as well. The flavor doesn’t stick around long either, as the beer has little body. Decent, but a little off-putting for regular drinking.

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.
