Pours an ever so slight hazy bronze colour. A little cloudy head with spotty lace. Starts with a cranberry tang, quickly fades to bready and toasty malt, some light herbs and grass

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
I had several samples at the brewery.
The appearance was a nice slightly hazy golden color that didn’t have any head or lacing.
The smell had a faint combined cranberry and wheat with no expected grainy kick that I sometimes get in these types of beers.
The taste was pretty much the same.
On the palate, this one sat fairly light and sessionable. There’s no kick from the wheat or tang from the cranberry.
Overall, I would say this would be a solid Summer choice for the hotter days but since I don’t live in the Yukon I don’t know how hot it gets there on the hotter days. Still, very worthy of coming back to.

Looks pretty: gold with a pinkish hue. Nose is wheat and faint cranberries. Taste is wheat and faint cranberries. Not great but kind of drinkable.

341 ml bottle. Pours a hazy pinkish-orange colour with a small, short lived off-white head. Aroma of wheat, yeast and light cranberry. Sweet flavour with malt, wheat, yeast and a dry, mild cranberry finish. Light body, thin texture and soft carbonation.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sample at Picaroon's Brewer's Bash. Hazy wheat beer with a touch of pink. Some tart cranberry on the nose, but the taste has very little fruit and more whole wheat and straw. Light, refreshing body. Overall, wished it tastes like it smells.

First of all, cranberries don’t thrill me. I’ll not be working for Ocean Spray anytime soon. This beer pours a hazy golden orange with almost no head. Aroma is malt and cranberries - and nothing else. The flavour had a weak tartness to it that can be attributed to the cranberries, but otherwise was a refreshing drinkable brew.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Drank from the bottle, sadly, as glassware was sorely lacking in my Yellowknife hotel. Has decent carbonation, okay brighter body. Soft, soft cranberry aroma with some maltiness. Flavour is just a hint of fruitiness with a beery malt back end and a dry finish. Drinkable, but everything about this brew needs more "oomph".

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from Trevor. Pale amber with a light off white head that fades to nothing. Wheat, sweet cranberries, light malt. Little skunky, mild sweetness, mild carbonation and body, unpleasant finish.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a cloudy yellow colour with little white head falling quickly to a small white ring. Aromas of well balanced cranberry, wheat, and yeast. Flavours of yeast, wheat, cranberry. Simple on paper but there is a good amount of good flavour.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2012 Pours a cloudy golden color with a big white head that sticks around and leaves a nice white ring. Aroma is a light yeast and then a wheaty cranberry. Taste is wheat and yeast up front with a soft sweet cranberry finish that turns slightly tart. Pretty good/unique fruit beer.
