My Blue Princess holly, planted late last summer, has brownish colored berries instead of red berries. Any ideas?

From my research the Princess Blue Holly berries generally start a bright red but will turn brown to almost black...but generally this will happen during the winter.
If the Holly appears healthy I would not be concerned over the color of the berries.
Holly berries can be reds, burgundy's, browns, blacks and rarely yellow and green.
