Effervescent jewel like deep amber color with a lasting off white head. Sweet tart candy nose. White sugar sweetness with cranberry sauce flavors over raw grain astringency. Some English muffin notes and some bitterness in the finish. Odd beer. BREWMUSKCLES (2731) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 28, 2013
bigguns 22 has done a fine job rating this one as i would concur with everything bigg has to say. though i don’t see it quite as good but the jist is there and it seems redundant to repeat everyhing. samsmith33 (772) - - DEC 7, 2013
Aroma is cranberry, mold, Reddish brown color, small white head. Taster is Tart cranberry flavor, not unpleasant. Also apple, cereal. Crisp.
A nice festive beer. Good for what it is. coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - DEC 17, 2013
Draft at brewery. Poured reddish/pink and bright. Thin white head. Aroma and flavor were light cranberry, lightly tart and lemony. Seemed a bit thin but quite quaffable and appropriate for the season. generallee08 (773) - New York, USA - JUL 22, 2014
The body has a reddish copper color with good clarity and a quick fading light off white head. Lacing is minimal and slick. The aroma has light scent with a mix of sweet/tart malts and cranberry. The flavor reflects the scent with a light to medium bodied malt sweetness with notes of caramel, sweet bread and pie crust. This is offset by light cranberry tartness and faint hop bitterness. Carbonation is light and the palate is a little sticky.

Bottle . Pours a dark brown color rather then a ruby red and pink. Very fruity and beer like with a tart aftertaste . Good for the point but not my favorite drowland (8955) - Georgia, USA - MAY 1, 2015
5/1/15. 12oz bottle from Bird Dog. Happy International Tuba Day! Clear amber pour, maybe some pink? Very small short lived head. Faint fruity aroma, otherwise malty and plain. I wouldn’t guess cranberry. Cranberry more present in flavor, not overwhelming, lightly bitter, sweet, and tart, bready, caramel. Could be worse.

12oz bottle. Pours a surprisingly deep golden brown with a small creamy off white head. Aroma is mostly soft malt graininess with some notes of cranberry, quite sweet. Flavor starts subdued sweet, again mostly just a soft creamy malt note, a bit of a candyish cranberry note, not the slightest tart or sharp. Finishes a bit grainy but not terrible, just a bit bland. Medium body and a sharper carbonation. Not wholly unpleasant but nothing too grand, just not much going on. ROGUE (2215) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - FEB 24, 2011
12oz bottle. Pours a deep copper amber color with a one finger slightly creamy head. Nose is light hops and fruit. Tastes like mild tart cranberry with malty toasty notes dominating and a semi-sweet finish. Light to medium in body with ample carbonation. Reynolds314 (3470) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 9, 2011
This was better then I thought but i thought it would be gross. Kind of boring with light cranberry tartness on a background beer that tasted a bit like a vienna or marzen.
