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!

Nice smooth smell of cranberry, yeast and rosemery. Sweet taste of caramel with a dry herbal centre and a fruity sour and sweet finish. Bittersweet. Fruit added to a belgian ale. Not bad. Drinkable but a bit sour. I like the cranberry.

On tap @ The Port Trenton. Pours a dark hazy gold with minimal head. Aromas are cranberry or white grape juice. Tastes are cranberry, clove, and orange zest. Tangy, lively carbonation, short spicy finish. Interesting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Bottle. A light cloudy gold with a wheaty cranberry tart aroma . The taste is wheaty tart cranberry, lightly sweet with a hint of cinnamon. This is a very tasty fruit beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2014 750ml bottle from LCBO. Minimal white frothy head on a great blonde body. Citrus/ fruity notes, the cranberry is not as overbearing as expected and orange notes are just as present in aroma. Tart in flavor, alcohol and some fruit. Cranberry isn?t one of my more enjoyed fruits for beer flavoring, but I was pleasantly surprised.

750ml corked & caged bottle shared at the lake. Hazy golden body, lively white head. Yeasty, vaguely fruity nose. Yeasty pale malts with lightly perfumey unsweetened cranberry. The fruit here is not very assertive, and the overall profile is light and dry. I quite liked it for these very reasons, but I could see why others may be looking for something more.

A nice after dinner pour. Watching season 3 of Deadwood as I write this so I should really be drinking fire whiskey & swearing like a cowpoke. Nice brew: tart cranberry, unibroue stable yeast, & lively carbonation. Crisp finish. Recommended.

Blonde dorée. Blanche/blé. Sucré. Très fine acidité. Légèrement florale. Fruité. Baies. Un peu épicé. Bien.
