Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 1, 2005
Pour is a little darker than other ephemere’s with a thin white head...smell is cranberry, yeast, and doughy...taste is malty, then some sour cranberry that builds into a nice finish, but a little cloying...good beer though!

JMerritt (1844) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - DEC 24, 2004
On tap at the Maproom in Chicago served in a Unibroue tulip glass. Very cloudy pale golden with a big white head. Cranberry and wheat aroma. Stale bread, cranberry flavor, lightly tart, with a rather heavy wheat and rye backbone.

TaktikMTL (6031) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 19, 2004
Bouteille de 341 ml. Arôme: Odeur de canneberge et de sucre. Apparence: Couleur paille voilée. Carbonisation faible. Col mousseux moyen qui disparaît tranquillement. Saveur: Saveur de canneberge. Palette: Acidité moyenne en bouche qui se termine par un très léger goût de métal. (Rating #26)

Lubiere (10472) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2004
Hazy blonde with a fresh cranberry and strawbeery aroma. Fresh wheat with cranberries, slighlty tart, light bodied, refreshing. 1 year old. Nov. 2004.

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 4, 2004
Draught, Darwin’s Evolving Pub (2004 version): hazed-golden moon-glow. Strong, though fluffy, starched white head; retentive. Initially sweet, then sour cranberry aroma, hints of orange zest, scented body soap and perfume. Smooth, ultra creamy (silky) palate, beautiful tight bubbles & fluffy carbonation. Soft, sour (though extremely fresh) cranberries with noticeable granny smiths and a nicely developed yeast profile. An elegant, flavourful, and for me enjoyable fruit beer.

frink (467) - coquitlam, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 4, 2004
Pours a dull yellow with a medium thick white head. Mild scent of cranberry as well as yeast , pepper and floral notes as well. This beer is quite fizzy on the palate with tastes of cranberry, yeast and thats about it, has a dry tart finish (yeah I know everyone says it but it is what it is). A less than average Unibroue product.

Malakin (469) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 30, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2006 Pinkish straw color, hazy. Sweet fruity aroma, some cranberry and maybe a bit peachy. Flavour is more of the same, bit dry and a bit tart. Rerate for 2006 - No pink, more dry, much less fruityness. I hope this isn’t the Sleeman effect. 11/20

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 28, 2004
On tap at the Moan and Dove: Cloudy orange/yellow with a thin white head, sharp fruity aroma, that seems more like raspberries than cranberries. Light bodied, thin and fizzy, starts and ends sweet then gets fairly dry.

Eructoblaster (3119) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 26, 2004
Bottle - 750ml. Pale gold hazy body topped with a thick and lasting foamy head. Very pleasant sweet and fruity (cramberries, melon, strawberries) aroma. Taste is thin and truly disappointing. It is dominated by carbonation, and the fruity and yeasty flavors are timid. It ends with a fair bittersweet aftertaste. Despite some qualities, that beer do not figure among my favorite fruit beers.

Dorwart (2392) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - NOV 24, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2004 Decent white head which dimishes quickly. Light carbonation. Sour cranberry aroma with some apples and spices. Color is a slightly hazy, golden amber. Bit fizzy in the mouth with a bit of tart cranberry. Dry palate. Finish is dry and slightly bitter/tart. An ok brew but some of the others were better. Thanks to radiomgb for this one.
