2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. You can hardly call this a fruit beer as the taste of cranberries is very faint. There’s a touch of tartness cranberry on the roof of the mouth, but mostly this is a rather characterless watery beer.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hazy amber colour with minimal head. Aroma was slightly wheaty and artificial cranberry. A tad of fruit but otherwise pretty thin. Slightly sticky at the end.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cran and wheat yeast come in the nose. Lots of head on the pint, some lacing, this one is pretty hazy. Golden reddish. Yeast is very big in he flavour, some cran sweetens it and the wheat clears it up and leaves your mpuh clean. Pretty nice addition to the wheat flavour.

Bottled sample. Light and fruity aroma. Slightly cloudy bronze colour with a small white head. Reasonable levels of carbonation. Tart flavour nicely balancing the wheat and cranberry flavours. Sharp bitter finish.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Colour is cloudy off-orange. Nose has some very young yeast, tobacco, and slight methane....not very appealing. Taste: Cranberries throughout the palate, soft raisin, mild wheat, weak body. Finish: yeasty and thick. This one just didn’t really get going and the nose was poor.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From bottle bought in Whitehorse. Poured dark amber with a creamy, off white head. Nice aroma of cranberry. Nice lacing too..very refreshing with no discernible maltiness OR hoppiness to me...very very smoothe with a subtle finish..not bitter. Smooth all around. If you want a beer with a strong character, this is not it. Having said that it definitely is quaffable and good for a summer brew especially.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. 4.7% 3rd in the Yukon taster pack. Pours a cloudy orange with a decent white bubbly head that fades quickly to a ring. Has that wit/hefe kinda feel going in. Aroma is sweet (quite yeasty, cranberries). Taste is grainy, with a hint of cranberry on the tongue as well as a yeasty, creamy mouthfeel. Finish is quite crisp, and extremely refreshing. Even drinking this out of season, I’m impressed. Will bring in a sixer of these for the patio season next year.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Wheaty good! Cloudy dull orange with a small white cap on the pour and no cap to speak of a couple of minutes later. Zero lacing. Aroma is faint, but the wheat and sour berries are mixed together equally. A chemically odour hides in the background. It’s nice to get a beer with aroma that is soft once and awhile. Taste is pretty good, except I’m not sold on the sourness - not that it’s bad. Soft wheat and yeast start you off while the sour cranberries finish. Good or bad, depending on your sour tolerance. I like it cause it’s different, but I don’t love it. It’s medium bodied with a very long sour yeasty finish. Fairly smooth with ample carbonation. Very tart and dry aftertaste. There is a collection of yeast that has gathered at the bottom of my glass that has a one way ticket to my stomach. Lots of sour - man, this aftertaste just doesn’t go away!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This brew poured a cloudy honey brown with zero head, barley any bubbles floated on top, this stuff resembles Metamucil perfectly. A pleasant malty banana aroma that is some what fruity is admitted from the beer, I enjoy the smell but the only problem is its very weak and hard to detect. Lots of bready malts can be tasted combined with a dry sourness that probably comes from the cranberries. This brew is medium bodied with good carbonation, and leaves a bready after taste. This beer is highly drinkable and refreshing but is also highly forgettable and boring.
