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.

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 it’s a good thing when a beer like this avoids being excessively sweet; but here the dry, dusky personality just adds up to suck.

Wow. I usually don’t care for fruit beers, but if found this one REALLY offensive. Smells like robotussin cough syrup. Tastes worse. Very fake fruity tartness. Drainpour.

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.

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.

From a bottle. Pours reddish copper brown with a thin white head and lots of lacing. Tastes like malt and cranberry. Just barely tart. Dry chalky feel. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like malt, grains, and very mild berries.

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...

Clear copper color with no head. Aroma of cranberry and grain. Slight cranberry flavor with grain presence. Not much else to the beer.
