12 ounce bottle from State Line Liquors. Pours a clear rust color with a large fizzy tan head. Fair head retention and lacing. Aroma of cranberry, pomegranate and grainy malts. The taste is cranberries, cherries, faint bready malts and a faint bit of roast character. Bitter earthy hops. Medium bodied. ChainGangGuy (4894) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JAN 14, 2012

Appearance: Pours a clear, golden-mahogany body with a small, whipped, bone white head.
Smell: A simple nose of oven-toasted bread crusts atop a faintly tart fruit accent that isn’t immediately identifiable as cranberry.
Taste: Bready, toasty Munich malt with a light incorporated caramelesque sweetness to it. A sip of subtly tart cranberry juice, that’s all. Very little in the way of hops or bitterness. Drying, minutely fruity, malty finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Overall: Harpoon played it safe with the cranberry here, but, maybe they just didn’t want a Cranberry Lambic on their hands.
Amber pour. Slightly carbonated; nice mouth feel. A little tart with hints of cranberry and bread. Overall, a nice different beer for fall. Great for Thanksgiving. CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 2, 2011
Bottle: pours a transparent deep amber with ruby hues and a stringy-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet biscuity malty nose with some light fruity notes and a touch of tartness. Starts with decent fullness and pale malty sweetness with a good cranberry tart balance before a drier doughy finish. A pretty true to style and drinkable brew.

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2011 I think I had this too cold, don’t taste any cranberries. As it is warming there is some cranberry tartness in the flavor and very light in the aroma. It’s actually not bad. Pretty good.

Bottle. Pours amber with an off white head. The aroma has a light cranberry fruity sweetness, with light toasty malts. The flavor has a bready and toasted malty base, some light cranberry sweetness, low bitterness, and some grainy notes. Better than I expected it would be. mar (5415) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 31, 2011
deep copper pour with a light white head. nose is rich caramel malts, dough, and faint cranberry. decent thickness, rather surprising sweet malts, light toffee, faint tart finish. SamP01 (668) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 29, 2012
12oz bottle (thanks mike67). Pours a reddish amber with a medium short lived white head. Aroma of caramel malt and sweet fruity spices and esters. Taste is same as aroma with some tart cranberry flavor. Palate is good medium body, carbonation is good. Finish is sweet caramel malt followed by some lingering fruity tartness, cranberries and touch of nutty aftertaste. Overall a descent showing for a fruit beer. Nice holiday brew TURDFERGUSON (4058) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 13, 2012
Bottle. Medium garnet amber with a small sticky white head. Nose is lemon dish soap, strawberry jolley rancher, nice cranberry. Mildly bitter, mild sweetness, a bit of cereal/grain, and fruity tannins. A bit watery and boring but certainly better than expected.

Poured a clear amber with a frothy white head. Aroma is cranberry, caramel, grass, and citrus. Taste is almost like a Marzen with a touch of cranberry.
