sseb69 (1476) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 4, 2014
Bouteille 750 ml. 5.5%. Couleur jaune paille un peu voilée, mousse blanche crémeuse. Arôme de grains et fruits rouges. En bouche, bonne effervescence, notes de grains, un peu de levures et des fruits en subtilité qui laissent traîner une petite amertume. Très bonne.

ljthiessen (312) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 30, 2014
Bottle. Cloudy yellow-orange pour with a large white head, settling to a thin soapy coating. Lots of cranberry and citrus on the nose, with a bit of spice and yeast as well. Flavour is more citrus than cranberry at first, but cranberry really comes out as it warms. Also some Belgian yeast in the flavour. Definitely better flavour as it approaches room temperature. Nice for a fruit beer.

reebtogi (4051) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 27, 2014
750ml corked bottle pours a golden color with pinkish hues with a generous white head that settles slowly, but leaves no lacing behind. Aroma is yeasty with some cranberries and light grains. Taste is fruity and malty sweet with a dry yeasty finish. Light to medium body with generous carbonation. A nicely done brew for the style and quite refreshing and good as an after dinner drink.

probstblueribbon (2858) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2014
750 mL bottle from Broue Ha Ha served cool in a tulip glass. Milky, slightly pink deep golden with a full white rocky head. Sweet stewed berries, possibly cranberries, hard to tell, wheat, yeast, Belgian esters, peppery bread dough. Medium body and full effervescence. Lots of berry jam, cranberry tartness, yeast and bread dough, so fruity; dry with limited bitterness and a very fruity finish.

cards04 (1613) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 20, 2014
A solid beer. Pours a muddy golden with lots of fizzy white head. Aromas of juicy strawberries and bubble gum. A bit of cranberry juice. Flavors are tart and sweet. Cranberry and hints of malty sweet bananas. Finishes a bit watery...but good.

patricks110 (1620) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 15, 2014
A nice brew overall with a truly unique flavour. The tart cranberries add a layer of almost lambic like sourness. The pour is bright and hazy with a thick off white head. The nose is tart and fruity with a light zesty yeast flavour. A mild toasted wheat malt blended with a heavy tart, acidic cranberry makes for an interesting but overly tart profile. Quite a nice brew overall.

dfinney23 (1577) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 14, 2014
Fruit and grain aroma. Very light cranberry taste, mostly overwhelmed by apple. Lively and refreshing without being overly fizzy.
