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.

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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a light reddish hue with a small pinkish head. The aroma is really light-perhaps some fruit. The taste has some cranberries, malts, and tartness. Something is off though. First, this is not a lambic, so why say so. Second, the beer is just really thin and weak while leaving artifical tastes. Not good, but not horrible.

Just really not that great... not very much like your traditional tangy Belgian lambic. I’d take a real one over this any day.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Blind tasting. Oak notes in aroma, light berry, light vanilla. Oak up front followed up by beery fruit syrup. The type of fruit was tought to decipher in this being blind. little tartness & zero sourness. We were told ahead that it was labeled a fruit lambic

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2008 Bottle. Appearance: Pink amber, eggshell head. Aroma: Sweet, tart and fruity. Cranberry dominates. Also a little wheaty. Palate: Medium/light. Flavor: Very sweet cranberry. Kind of tart. Was a weird, dairy, almost yogurt like sourness. Overall: I poured half of this beer down the drain. I’m not crazy about cranberry drinks in general. This one was just to much for me. Worst of their winter 12 pack by far.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle part of a holiday pack. Pours orange in color with small whitish head. Aroma was fruity not necessarily just cranberries. Flavor is TOO SWEET. I get a touch of malt, some vanilla, with the cranberries. Light mouthfeel. Not one of my favorite SA brews.
