LilBeerDoctor (3413) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2009
Bottle. Pours a light yellow with a small white head and lively carbonation. Aroma of sweet cranberry, grape. Flavor is of chewable cranberry/grape candies. Sugary like those sugar-coated gummybears. Slight tartness/prickliness. Rather sweet and artificial tasting to me. Just ok, I’m not really digging the flavor here. 7/4/6/3/13 (3.3/5)

Bottle thanks to andrew. Pours light gold color, thinnish head. Aroma of chewable vitamin c, sweet fruits and cranberry. Favor is cranberry, no sourness, light fruit flavor. Thinnish mouthfeel. Decent.

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 26, 2009
Bottled. Poured honey color with a white head. Aroma was butter, cheap red wine, and cranberry. This beer tasted like bitter medicine with no cranberry. Medium body with a good amount of carbonation.

750ml from beastiefank2k, thanks eugene, shared with my gf cyn and kaitlyn and adam. Pours orange with a bright white ring. Nose is sweet with some cranberry. Taste is full of cranberry but not quite as fruity as I’d hoped, ok.

daknole (8863) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 11, 2009
Cloudy gold with a small whtie head. Tart yeasty aroma. Flavor has some tart cranberry, yeast is strong and some honey flavors. This reminds me of a mead in a way. Not bad, not amazing.

Beershine (5201) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - APR 11, 2009
Bottle, thanks to Dak. Pale yellow hazy with medium-small head. yeasty sodapop aroma. Light carbonation, slight tackiness in palate but not much. Yeasty flavors overwhelm the cranberry, and there is not much tartness left. Sweet-tart-yeasty and in spite of its age still has an interesting character.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - APR 10, 2009
750ml bottle with a best before 09-28-07 date. Golden yellow with a medium white head that goes down quicker than Bill Hall on strikes. Aroma of bready malt, cranberry and some yeast. Taste pretty much mimics the flavor with a touch of dust thrown in. Body is super carbonated, perhaps because it’s been hangin’ with the yeast too long. Finish is dry, mildly tart with a little bit of butter thrown in.

Rustyham (1717) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2009
The cranberry lends itself to a wonderful smell, but luckily doesn’t really show itself in the flavor. It tastes like a crisp smooth cider with the complexity of a Belgian Triple. Good stuff, but I was happier with the apple version. Thank you Daknole.
