Aroma of cranberries, yeast and a bit of malt. Slightly hazy golden amber color with a significant white head. Starts with sweet fruit, which passes to somewhat tart cranberry. Then some clove and banana arrives. The finish is mostly tart clove and banana. Interesting.

Bottle. Golden orange colour with an average short lasting head. Aroma has plenty of cranberries and some wheat. The flavour is a little sweet and somewhat sour too, plenty of cranberry. Clean fresh finish. Far from a real Belgian lambiek beer, more like a fruit flavored beer. But I guess this one is more friendly to the regular beer drinkers than a real lambiek.

Bottle from Winter Classics Sampler. Pours a hazy ruby color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly diminishing. Average cranberry fruity aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture. Moderate sour cranberry flavor with a tart finish of average duration.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Itís unclear, orange-red with a lasting, creamy head. The aroma has notes of cranberries, a light berry sourness, light sweetness and wheat. The flavour is sweet with notes of creanberries, wheat and a little yoghurt. Itís smooth and sweet, very far from the lambic style, and too sweet in the long run.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A: The pour is initially bubbly and a cloudy pink with a light pink head. The head and carbonation quickly subside leaving a rather lifeless looking beer.
S: The smell is very, very strange. There are aromas of a classic witbier, such as coriander and citrus, along with a substantial wheat scent. There is also a fake cranberry smell.
T: The taste is just about the same as the aroma. A strong spice flavor mixed with a tartness (Iím guessing from the cranberry juice). The cranberry flavor, however, is rather subdued.
M: The beer is lightly carbonated and has a medium body.
D: This is a really strange beer. Itís certainly not a lambic (or anything resembling one). The combination of spice, fruit, and tartness just isnít working out here.

Cloudy amber to auburn in color. Wonderful aroma of cranberries and malt. Flavor is very malty with a definite taste of cranberries. The palate is a bit fizzy.
