2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Let me start off by saying I like cranberries. Cranberry bread, cranberry muffins...but not cranberry beer. The aroma was interesting but I barely finished the bottle, and had to drink it in short doses to get through. Just not my thing I guess.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dirty copper appearance with some head. Confusing fruit and creamed corn aroma with musty hoppiness. Body is semi-sour and fruity, but still maintains an American standard flavor. I applaud Sam Adams' willingness to attempr to brew a beer in this style, but it could have been done much better.

A Mes rate: Bottle at Tom’s UGT Pt. 2.My god this was awful. Rather univiting cloudy light brown and it gets worse from there. Really nasty pukey sweet caramel. I couldn’t smell it without feeling like I was going to gip. Undrinkable.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Poured a sparkling, clear medium golden with a quickly-receding white head. Nose picked up wheat and light berries, along with an odd vegetal aspect. Flavors of wheat, banana, clove, cranberry, and grassy/vegetal hops. Very sweet on the palate with light sour berry notes on the sides. Too much carbonation, and the sweet explosion at the front of the finish was unpleasant. The enjoyment factor was low with this one.

Bottle. Pinkish beer with an off-white head. Sweet, tart, light fruit roll-up aroma. Fruit roll-up flavor with some malt. Medium body. Fruit roll-up lingers. Got worse as I drank more.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Courtesy of Quake1028. Pours a clear bright copper with lasting off white foam ring. The aroma starts off with some musty funk followed by mild notes of cranberry and fruity tartness. It tastes just like the aroma if not a bit fruitier. It starts with a hit of mustiness mixed with cranberry juice. Interesting combination. Midway a sugary sweetness takes hold for a moment or two before both the mild funk and cranberries return to bring the experience to a close.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Thanks Anker for providing. Hazy reddish body with a medium off white head. Sweet fruity aroma with light caramel notes. Rather sweet flavour with lots of caramel and fruit. Expected it to be more tart from the cranberry. Ends up slightly sour and fruity.
