Extra carbonated hazy gold with a loose white soap bubble head. Funky, yeasty aroma with some fruit. Crisp and light on the palate. Has a champagne like texture. Delicate flavors that disappear quickly. The cranberry seems like an essence. Well executed beer but a little understated.

shrubber85 (11706) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 22, 2005
Bottle. Cranberry/raspberry and musty aroma. LIght amber color with moderate head. Slightly sweet cranberry and musty aroma - dry with high acidity. A very nice beer comparable to a fruit lambic like Cantillon or Guardin.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - DEC 22, 2005
Bottle. Dark golden body with a thick foamy head. Nose-smells like a wit beer with alot of lotion. Taste-much better than the nose-medium tartness, berry, lotion, spicy yeast, black pepper, anise, wheat, sweet-tarts. Very well done. They didn’t go overboard with the sweetness or let the cranberries get too tart. A great mixture of wheat, tart, and a beutifuly spicy yeast. This yeast is just plain awesome-maybe the best yeast strain that I have ever experienced.

Cable (286) - SE, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 4, 2005
Sampled on draft at the Patton Alley Pub, MO. Pours cloudy lemon-orange with a lasting creamy white head and frothy lacing. Aroma is pretty much all berries. Flavor is fairly balanced with cranberry, unibrou’s typical yeast and a bit of hop spice. Medium-bodied and easy to drink. Very refreshing.

Metalhead (644) - Lake Zurich, Illinois, USA - NOV 25, 2005
pours a hazy straw color with a big frothy head.Aroma is subtle floral/fruty mix. Taste is just as subtle of wheat,yeast,frut and hints of flowers. I was hoping the cranberry would have more punch since I had this for Thanksgiving dessert. Nice but too watery.

3.7
Magjayran (1379) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 22, 2005
Pours a cloudy light amber color with a thick and lasting head that is ever so slightly colored by the cranberries. The nose is fruity and obviously influenced by cranberry but it’s not the only thing. There is that classic yeasty scent that I expect from Unibroue as well as a slightly spicey cinnamon and black pepper aroma. The flavor is truly divine. Some of the signature Unibroue flavor is there. Strong yeast presence. But there’s a nice little hint of cranberry that compliments the flavor without dominating the beer. I enjoyed this beer quite a bit and was impressed that they made the cranberry flavor so subtle. I was expecting the cranberries to be as prevalent in this as they are in the apple version. Highly suggested and I would love to get another bottle for Thanksgiving.

bu11zeye (13239) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - NOV 19, 2005
(750ml bottle) Pours a cloudy pink body (similar to pink grapefruit juice; unique indeed) with a large frothy white head. Aroma of musitness, florals, and hint of cranberries. Flavor of wheat (strong), spicy yeast, cloves, and mild cranberries.

4.2
destroye7 (312) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 1, 2005
750ml Bottle. Again, balance between the fruit and the beer taste is perfect. The cranberries are not killing the beer taste, it’s like a 50-50.

3.5
Crockett (1139) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 11, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2015 Pours hazy gold with some light orange hues. Nose of currants, cranberry and some sort of minty toothpaste-esque-ness. Although I don’t particularily like cranberries, they suited the beer well and incorporated evenly. Lots of yeast and secondary apple and wheat flavours. Quite perfumey. Not entirely unpleasant and possibly the best of the bunch.

3.3
mds (2256) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 25, 2005
bottle. hazy white-golden body with a large fluffy-creamy white head. strong fruit aroma perfumey-sweet candy cranberries fill the room. lively body with creamy yeast. There is a little bit of tart cranberry flavour and some pears. candy finish. refreshing.
