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 Ďbreadyí notes of the Vienna and Munich malts.

Thanks, Abbie! Might have gone better on Turkey Day, but even a late tick is a tick. Reddish brown pour, lively carbonation that fades in time. Nose of dried fruit past consumability, along with mild fruitbread. Thin body accentuates the starkness of the flavors. Usually itís a good thing when a beer like this avoids being excessively sweet; but here the dry, dusky personality just adds up to suck.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 3/19/12

Aroma: It has something cranberry-like that isnít exactly cranberry and something that is very medicinal (Robitussin?), the cranberry Robitussin overpowers anything else that may be present in the nose here...
Appearance: It pours a transparent reddish-amber color with a small off-white head and no lace
Flavor: The taste, much like the nose, is a rather unusual combination of sweet and medicinal
Palate: Light bodied, with average-to-soft carbonation, a cloying stickiness, and an unpleasant finish
Overall Impression: Iím sure this stuff would have made for great medicine in Chris Rockís house, but as beer it didnít work at all. No íMo Tussin Beer, and since I donít have anything else to say about this one:
"l broke my leg, Daddy poured Robitussin on it. Yeah, boy, let that ítussin get in there. Yeah, boy, let that ítussin get on down to the bone. The ítussin ought to straighten out the bone. ltís good. If you run out of ítussin, put some water in the jar, shake it up, MO íTUSSIN!"

Wow. I usually donít care for fruit beers, but if found this one REALLY offensive. Smells like robotussin cough syrup. Tastes worse. Very fake fruity tartness. Drainpour.

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2011 I think I had this too cold, donít taste any cranberries. As it is warming there is some cranberry tartness in the flavor and very light in the aroma. Itís actually not bad. Pretty good.

Bottle. Pours a dark amber with a moderate white head. Definite fruit and cranberry notes in the nose. Taste is a tad sour, and not a taste I particularly care for.

djd07 (3643) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 27, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with small off white head that leaves spotty lacing along the glass. The aroma is cranberry and wheat. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet fruity malt with cranberry and sweet finish. A decent fruit beer from Harpoon.

Effervescent jewel like deep amber color with a lasting off white head. Sweet tart candy nose. White sugar sweetness with cranberry sauce flavors over raw grain astringency. Some English muffin notes and some bitterness in the finish. Odd beer.
