rodenbach99 (4415) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 31, 2012
Pinte sur place. Belle couleur rose-saumon avec une mousse blanche. Le nez est passablement acidul. Les pices sont bien prsentes et agrables. La bouche est piquante, acidule, le gaz carbonique est bien prsent et donne cette sensation piquante sur la langue. Les canneberges apparaissent en fin de bouche.

SlovakSniper (5360) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 8, 2012
Balade dominicale : Bire blonde embrouille. Petite tte mousseuse qui laisse des traces. Un nez de bl, de malt belge et de coriandre. Un lger parfum fruit. Dautres pices : peut-tre de la cannelle et de la muscade. Des saveurs dilues qui sont tout de mme acidules par les canneberges. Une coriandre et des pices prsents. Un corps mince avec une bonne effervescence et une texture plutt aqueuse. Une finale pice.

On tap at the pub. Pours a cloudy blonde color with a thin white head. Decent aroma and flavor of cranberries and coriander, maybe other spices too. The palate is light and dry and the carbonation is lively. Its interesting to try it once but its not one of this brewpubs best.

rederic (3307) - montral, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 13, 2006
Hazy brown-orangeish hue, with a ring of white foam head, yeasty, note of fruity fieldberries, spicy coriander, maybe also hint of curaao in the aroma, follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty character, hint of sourness, maybe from the cranberries, but the fruit himself is almost invisible in the mouth, with a spicy note of coriander, hint of fruitiness, leading towards a tart and sour fruitiness finish.

collieman (191) - montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 11, 2005
So heres how it happened, it being my loving of a fruit beer. I went into the brewpub hopeing for a couple of classes of the wonderfull "California" just to find it finised. So upon looking at the menu for quite a while I finaly said, "I think Ill have a 12 ouncer of atoka," to wich the bartender responded, "Realy? The cranbery beer? Ok, if youre shure." and my pint was poured in glass. One should mention that it is actualy an amber wheat/cranbery ale, not just a cranbery beer. It should be also mentioned that it folows several caracteristics of beers that I usualy hate, but I like this one very much. Pours a medium heavy cloudy goldish ruby with a lightly pink half inch head of small yet visable bubbles. Boddy is slightly sandy with a lovley fizzy almost natural carbonation to it. Taste starts of with a lovley refreshing crispy tangy ness, I like most I imagine, was expecting more cranbery sauce, not tart fresh cranberys {real cranberys Im told by the bartender, over a handfull in every pint he tels me} folowed by sweet a chery maltyness and a light trace of bubblegumy yeastyness, then a strong return to fresh tart cranbery. Light undertones of belgum yeasts, buckwheat, rasins, and just a touch of flowery mild hops dance with the strong dry cranbery body in a very very refreshing way. aftertaste is first bubble gum wheaty ness and swetly stickily belgum, which i did find unaplealing, but upon first breath, all other taste is replaced by an even tarter than befiore wash of dry as hell cranberys, and after a long linger, its replaced by a stong swety fuity ness that stays around just long enough to let you know its there. Wow, that was sooo, good, my mouth is watering just describeing it now....... I want another one right now. I looked at my glass, and saw some prety serious laceings, and not a drop of beer. I looked at the clock. Barley a min had passed. I looked at the bartender, and there were several other beers I wanted to try, but i thought for a second and said "I think Ill have a pint of this please," to witch he responded "Realy? You shure? well ok..." Get it before its gone, the beer menu here changes at almost light speed. Cheers

CapFlu (5111) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 3, 2005
(Draught) Sampled at the brewpub on December 2, 2005, for $5. Pours a deep reddish body with a thin, quick dissipating head. Nose of sour fruit. The malt is fairly week to counter the strong acidity. Pretty good but not a nightly sipper...

hopscotch (10914) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 17, 2005
Draft... Lightly hazy, straw-colored ale with a mid-sized, frothy, white head. The nose is tart with notes of lemon and green apple. A touch earthy. The flavor is perfectly balanced and dry, but otherwise nondescript except for a whisper of butter. Light-bodied with a bone-dry finish. Leaves the mouth feeling like the mojave desert.
