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.

this is not a noteable beer. in fact, i’m surprised it won the award. maybe i’m just not well-versed enough in fruit wits. i like the appearance of this beer: hazy, cloudy, unfiltered and swimming with spicy yeasts; however, the flavor does not support the visual. hints of cinnamon and orange peel surface, mellowed on the sides of my tongue by something - slightly tart? no discoveries of cranberry, even after yeast agitation. i prefer the blackberry wit from 2007’s sam adams’ longshot sixer.

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.

Bottle:   Dark straw, cloudy, large foamy white head, rather nice lacing.   Looks tasty.   Cranberry nose, tart, otherwise berryish on the side of unripened.   Has a sort of mountain blueberry hint as well, moreso the plant and not the berry.   Pale fruitiness, much less cranberry and much more sweet.   Not as tart as suspected.   Can’t get over the flavor as it seems to me to be somewhat sweet, more blueberry than cranberry, and a bit like the bush and less like the berry.   Yeah, has that air of a Blueberry bush.   As for the wit portion, feels wheaty but anything wit related is killed by the sweet fruitiness.   I must say, better than I expected.   Not thin, certainly feels wheaty on the tongue.   More fruity and less spritzy than I thought.   Nice work!   Cranberry ey?

12 oz. bottle in 7/09. Pours a peach color with a thin, off-white head. The aroma has a large dose of wheat malt, grass and a hint of fruit and cinnamon. The flavor is very much the same with additional notes of bready malts and a splash of honey like sweetness. The finish is a touch dry. Light medium bodied. The cranberry is very mild at best.

Pours a hazy peach color, with an off white head. Aroma of berries, malt, and wheat. Thin body, with flavors of a tart cranberry and lemons. A blast of spices accompany the finish, which is quite crisp! Very well balanced.
