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.

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.

auerbrau (3177) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - NOV 14, 2010
12oz Bottle. Empty mineral nose. Pours clear dark henna and copper, with a foamy off-white thick head. Flavors come across to me mainly in hops, rosehips, and metallic, sharp malt sugar. Surprisingly bitter and noticeably thin in the cranberry flavor for me, I guess. I mean, I see it there, but it isn’t dazzling me. Was glad to see that this didn’t come across as punishingly sweet. Hard to tell how I really feel about this beer...

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

Less objectionable than I expected. The aroma is caramel, cranberry, bread. The appearance is clear, deep amber, whit head. The flavor is cranberry upfront, bready. Medium in body, actually a little thin. The finish is tart, cranberry, no hops at all. OK to drink.
