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.

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.

This one is kinda funky and unusual. Taste is cranberries, cotton balls and malt. All over the map.

Jabic (431) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - NOV 5, 2012
Ar: Hint of breadiness and tart cranberry. Ap: Crystal-clear copper - medium off-white head with moderate retention - a ring of foam and small pad of lacing. T: Toasty malt, pineapple fruitiness, up front - light sweetness - bready malt with a cranberry tannin dominates mid palate - bitter fruitiness on the finish that becomes a bit metallic. P: Medium body with high carbonation - finish is dry. O: Malty autumn ale, with some pleasant cranberry notes - some of the fruit tannins could stand to be cut back.

Thanks to TNT for picking this one up. Tasted on Thanksgiving and served in a sampler glass. Pours an auburn color. Nose has a nice cranberry tartness and backing malt. Flavor falls through with too much breadiness. Over the top malt with cranberry falling to the background. Nose was by far the best part of this one.

From notes: Poured clear reddish-amber with a 1-finger bone-colored head. Biscuity aroma mixed with caramel and a touch of cranberry. Medium body with a touch of dryness in the finish. The flavor matches the aroma: biscuity and caramelly, with some cranberry underneath.

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.
