Went on a trip up to Duluth, had to stop buy fitgers and check it out. Immediately eyed down this beer and had to try it. It was delicous as i thought it would be and also a little bit stronger than most. Delicous on the tongue and smooth going down. Would definately recommend this to anyone.

A - Poured out a cloudy orange/amber color with a white, fluffy one-finger head. It left small traces of lace.

S - It smelled very sweet (the cranberry aroma). Also, there was a grainy/wheaty smell.

T - It was very, very sweet. Cranberry was the dominant flavor. No real hop or spice presence. It did have a little grain-like taste.

M - It was soft and smooth. A very light-bodied beer.

D - This was okay, but it is just not my cup of tea...or pint of beer. Too sweet for me. My mother-in-law loved it.

Pours ½ finger of white head. No retention. Color is a peach hued pink. Slight haze to it.

Aroam: Wheat and cranberries. Fairly sweet. Not tart. Has some lemongrass and lemonade flavors to it.

Aroma: Lemongrass, wheat, and cranberries. Again, it is sweet. Light flavors.

Mouthfeel: Sweet, dry, clean. Lighter bodied with a low amount of carbonation. Ends dry and clean.

Overall, a decent beer, but nothing to prevailing. A bit muted. Somewhat drinkable thought.
