Je ne suis en général pas pas un grand amateur de bières fruitées. Mais j’avoue que j’aime bien cette bière. Raffraichissante et pas trop sucrée. Une bière d’été parfaite!

Large white head from a cloudy golden body. Straw aroma filled with slight cranberry and a touch of orange to cut the bitters. Very drinkable ale.

Semi-see thru straw colour, with considerable carbonation. Thin white head. Not a particularly attractive looking beer. Aromas of apple (I’ve had the apple version of this and it smells the same... where is the tart cranberry?), and maybe a bit of Belgian yeast. Mouth feel is thin and sparklingly crisp. Tastes are more towards cranberry than the aroma, and dried fruits. Bit of grain. Overall, this is too light and fruity of a beer for my tastes. Would not buy again.

HIGHB4LL (800) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 25, 2015
Bomber from Wilbur’s. Appearance: 3 fingers white head that lasts, straw yellow, cloudy, ok lacing. Aroma: cranberry, light wheat, light caramel, apple, light orange, light grassiness. Palate: light body, average to lively carbonation, slight dry finish, tart, sparkling texture. Taste: sweet cranberry and apple with a spike of cranberry tartness, with light wheat astringency, and perhaps a little bit of grassy hops on the end. Overall, very pleasant, really drinkable, very good beer!

samzim (304) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 10, 2015
Smells like cranberry juice with notes of malt. Cloudy gold colour. Tangy front with notes of cranberry, plum, and malt. Medium in body and carbonation. A tasty beer.

WisconsinBeer (715) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - JAN 6, 2015
Bottle. Pours a hazy pale yellow, with quite a bit of carbonation. Somehow I expected this to be cloying, but it’s actually quite delicious. Initially light and fizzy on the palate, which fades into a very nice dry cranberry note. I could drink quite a bit of this without a problem.

bigguns22 (721) - Maryland, USA - DEC 27, 2014
Pour is straw yellow with a tall and fluffy head. Aroma is yeasty with lite fruit notes. It’s a nice beer and very easy drinker but leaves you wanting more. I will say it’s best to drink a little warmer then the 38 deg frig temp. As with most beer the temp warms and the flavors are more pronounced. Starts out yeasty and wheaty then comes the fruit followed by a tart bitterness.

[6715-20140830] Bottle. Minty cranberry fruit aroma. Hazy, light yellow orange body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head. Fruity cranberry yeast flavour. Medium body. Good. (7/3/7/3/14) 3.4
