1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
aroma, fruity this is the best part, hazy light amber hue, taste, On no, that maple sryup would have been better on waffle, some bitter cranberry type flavor, I found no easy way to drink it,overall, I would drink these first in the Winter Classics and try to get them down, my hope was that Ol fizz was wanting for me!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy pink/red. Light cranberry, water, mild vanilla, slight funk. Flavor is brief tart cranberry followed by almost a bitter wheat malt flavor. Lingering bitterness and bland wheat. Mild spice. Lots of carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Drinkable, but not overly enjoyable.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Aroma of cranberry, orange peel and slight pine funk. Pours very hazy blood orange. Tastes of cranberry, other citrus and bread. The danger comes in after you swallow. A very unpleasant rotten fruit funk lingers. I get no lambic mouthpucker or wheat notes. Bad form.

2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma is nice. Unfortunately I tried to drink it as well. Tastes like somebody mixed beer with cranberry juice cocktail. I’m usually a big fan of Sam Adams (and lambics), but this was hard to choke down. This gives lambic a bad name.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours cloudy grapefruit red. Aroma is fruity and
sweet. Taste is fruity, but quite bland and watery.
No finish, now I remember why I have not bought
or liked lambic ! Never again for me on this one !

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a hazy red-amber with a thin beige head and sweet aroma of cranberries. Tate is very sweet, of cranberries, fruits, and wheat. Not a good tasting beer and one I wouldn’t go for again

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Very cloudy pinkish dark amber, very little head that doesn’t last much, kinda pink-cream tinted. Smell has some wheat, dull toffee, some wild yeast, and some dried cranberries. Taste is light and sugary, kinda sparkly...not sure how else to describe. Light tart fruit, cranberries thats pretty unobtrusive and forgettable. Light wild yeast funk and sugary sweetness stack up that fruity tone, but the body is pretty light and watery. Just unimpressive.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Ruddy red amber color, little head. The nose is very sweet and acidic, cranberry flavors, I suppose. The taste is sweet, sugary, terse with a somewhat tart finish. The body’s watery and uninteresting. Overall, a beer I really don’t have much feeling for - I couldn’t finish my bottle.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle @ home, picked picked up at Wilbur’s in Fort Collins as a single. This isn’t in the 12 mixed pack this year, so I’m not sure if they got six packs of it and split it up or what. Incredibly cloudy, pinkish brown appearance with a pinkish cream colored head. Somewhat spicy, maple, light caramel, tart mild cranberry, red fruity aroma. Slightly tart, cranberry, light apple, kind of dull toffee, caramel, maple flavor. I thought I remembered this being a lot more tart but maybe that’s just what I thought it should be. This tastes pretty dull.
