3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at SPTR, pours lightly hazy and murky golden brown with small to medium white head. Aromas and flavor of Belgian yeast, dark fruit, cherry candy but faint, not much cranberry. Medium bodied. This is alright just not nearly enough cranberry in this one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Aroma is slight, not overpowering, with delicate cranberry hints to it. Looks light golden in colour, no touches of red at all. Tastes on the sweet side, lacks any kind of tart cranberry flavour which is both a blessing and a curse. Some tartness would’ve balanced it out. It has a light finish and polishes more refreshing than you’d think. Quite nice.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap sample. Poured hazy amber with an average frothy white head that was fully lasting and produced fair lacing. Medium fruit aroma. Light to medium body with a thin texture and soft carbonation. Sweet fruit flavor with a light fruit sweet finish of average duration.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly sweet wheat malt aroma, with a nice cranberry presence. Pours a clear light golden with a full white head and visible carbonation. Much sweeter then I was expecting, with the cranberries more of a hint of flavor then the tart presence I was expecting. Very light bodied, with lots of carbonation. Easy drinking, and I can see this pairing with several options for Thanksgiving.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from LCBO. Pours amber, not red as one might expect. Pleasant tart flavour with just the right amount of cranberry. My favorite ephemere, I think.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Dutch’s. Totally hazy golden orange color. Thin white head. Some loose bits of lace. Medium body, nice full feel to it. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Lightly slick finish, kind of a dry taste. Moderate sweet, light tart. Good creme and cranberry aroma, wheat, mild spice. Pretty nice cranberry fruit beer. Has kind of like a cheesecakey creaminess to it, and nice amount of cranberry, overtop a solid wheat ale.
