2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not the biggest fan of this beer. Aroma is cranberry and vinegar. Pour yeilds a off-white head with fair lacing. Peachy color. Taste is bitter and a bit strange to my palate. Goes down decently but a bit to harshly carbonated. Okay, but will not be on the lookout for this beer.

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.

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.

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.

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle from foppa78- thanks again, Mat! So glad to finally get a hold of this gem. Pours a hazy reddish color, kind of dull, with a small white head that really just settles into a ring with a few wisps of film. Aroma of cranberry, vanilla, oak, caramel, banana, clove, and nutmeg. Kind of like a fruit pie. Flavor of cranberry, caramel, brown sugar, leather, earth, nutmeg, cardboard, and banana. Medium bodied, with low to moderate carbonation and a fruity, juicy mouthfeel that dries on the finish. Not bad. Weird, but not bad at all.
