3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

Too tart but I suppose that’s what you get with cranberry. Nice dark color, no head...probably won’t be drinking this again.

Bottle. Light reddish-brown. Medium size head. Seems to have more cranberry aroma than flavor. Most of the cranberry taste is in the after taste. Not a bad beer but won’t drink again.

Draft at brewery. Poured reddish/pink and bright. Thin white head. Aroma and flavor were light cranberry, lightly tart and lemony. Seemed a bit thin but quite quaffable and appropriate for the season.

12/03/13 RAK gift from Jodi. By no means was this a bad beer; it just didn't have much of a flavor. No cranberry presence.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

Really wanted to like this, but it was almost a pour. Its redemption was, as it warmed it became tolerable. Nice nose. Cranberry soda at first. Warming brought out a bit of pleasant malt. Still, a dud.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Enjoy by: 01/15/14. A clear ruby pour with a thin beige head. Cranberries, wheat, cereal grains, and light caramel in the aroma. Goes down thin and crisp. Wheat and sweet cereal grains start things off taste-wise. Just a tad white bready in the middle. An estery cranberry sweetness/tartness follows. Some sour lemons are present at the end. Overly sweet throughout. Not too impressive on its own, but might actually accompany a turkey dinner quite nicely...
