this is not a noteable beer. in fact, i’m surprised it won the award. maybe i’m just not well-versed enough in fruit wits. i like the appearance of this beer: hazy, cloudy, unfiltered and swimming with spicy yeasts; however, the flavor does not support the visual. hints of cinnamon and orange peel surface, mellowed on the sides of my tongue by something - slightly tart? no discoveries of cranberry, even after yeast agitation. i prefer the blackberry wit from 2007’s sam adams’ longshot sixer.

Aroma and flavor is cranberries, malts and mix of tart and somewhat bland smooth in the finish.

"this was an interesting beer, although not one of my favorite SA offerings. like the blackberry wit...fresher on tap most likely, but i won’t find that here, so all in all, a refreshingly unique, but just about average, beer experience."

On top there is a small (one finger thick) off white head. It quickly settles down to a thin ring of foam that leaves behind some lace rings on the glass. Its aroma is fruity, spicy, and tangy with notes of wheat and citrus as well. The flavor has a nice wheat malt base with orange citrus notes, tart cranberry and solid dose of fine Saigon cinnamon. Hop favor and bitterness are very mild. It finishes dry with wheat tang and spice. The texture is lively with plenty of soft carbonation in a medium body.

Bottle purchased in a Las Vegas liquor store. Hazy amber beer. Short lived suddy white head. Orange and cranberry dominate the soft dry palate. Spice is here to. Would have preferred more fruit and less spice. Okay.

aroma, cinnamon, criutsy fruity nose, color, hazy golden amber hue, frim white head taste, spice on the front, mild cinnamon, orange, almost like cranberry bread, slight bitter cranberries. overall, mush better that the cranberry lambric which I was afarid this would taste like, good stuff.
