COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Created by Samuel Adams Employee Carissa Sweigart. Brewed with ingredients signature to Carissa’s home of Massachusetts this Cranberry Wit is spiced with a blend of cinnamon, orange peel, coriander and grains of paradise, and finished with a touch of cranberry. This bright, fruity and refreshing brew is reminiscent of an autumn day in New England.

Ungstrup (29474) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2009
Bottled. A hazy dark golden beer with an off-white head. The aroma has notes of malt, cranberries, and wheat. The flavor is sweet - very sweet - with light notes of malt, cranberries, and wheat, leading to a dry wheaty finish. Not me.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 10, 2009
Bottle 35,5 cl. Pours a hazy reddish golden with an off-white head leaving laces. Spicy, berry-like nose - perhaps with a hint of cinnamon. Light in body, soft in mouthfeel, lightly sweet berry notes and again this whiff of cinnamon. The finish is dry completely lacking any bitterness. But fairly pleasant and quaffable. 100709

Bottle purchased in a Las Vegas liquor store. Hazy amber beer. Short lived suddy white head. Orange and cranberry dominate the soft dry palate. Spice is here to. Would have preferred more fruit and less spice. Okay.

Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 7, 2009
Cloudy beige-ish tan colour. Aroma of cranberry, lemon balm, faint hop and light malt. This is yeasty, with a fairly full body. There is light cranberry and good balance. It’s a little too full to be refreshing, but otherwise it’s well made.

bhensonb (11248) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 15, 2009
Bottle from Monument in Concord, CA. Hazy orange gold color with a decent white head. Aromas of wheat, fruit and spice. Near medium body with frothy carbonation. It’s astringent. Flavor is wheat, citrus/coriander and arguably some cranberry bitter. Finishes bitterish. It is refreshing after packing a couple of trade boxes.
