3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to hudsonphotog for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a red-orange-amber color with a white head. The aroma is caramel, maple syrup and cranberries. The flavor is heavy on the cranberries with some vanilla and maple notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
I tried this several years ago and remember hating it. Not sure what is different this time, but I didn’t dislike it - even though I went in expecting to.

The first lambic I ever tried, and it will probably be my last. Way too tart for my taste.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy amber with a tan head. Sweet, wheaty bread aromas. Very sweet/sour malt combinations with almost no hops. Wouldn’t call it a lambic. Sour cran-wheat flavor. A nice tart thirst quencher, but I wouldn’t drink more than one at a time.

33 cl bottle, pours unclear red, slight fruit aroma, taste is somewhat sweet fruity, but very bland overall, not as bad as I had expected but not gonna bother with this beer again.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had this one on our trip to Nashville. Left over from a friend’s Christmas season (as it does say best before April). Pours a hazy orange-red colour with a pale pink creamy head and has decent retention and lace. I was quite surprise to smell bananas more than anything else. I guess it is from their wheat (the same used in their Hefeweizen). The cranberries are light in the background. The mouthfeel is quite sweet and semi-syrupy. The taste of the fruit are present, but again, the strong bananas come in to take over, right into the aftertaste. I guess when this beer expires its freshness, the cranberries disappears but the wheat stays strong. Just wondering about the lambic part ??

A nice cranberry aroma with a reasonable 1-2 finger head that goes away fairly quickly. It looks like a perfect belgian with a tinge of pink to me. Not like a normal lambic really...tastes like a mediocre belgian with some sort of nasty flavor added. Sort of drinkable in a nasty way...doesn’t make you want to drink it because of the quality but because it is sort of easily drinkable although funny aftertaste.

Bottle: Poured a red/brown color with a thin head. The aroma was sweet fruit and malts. The flavor was weak and watered down and it is bad they want to label this as a lambic. Not much lambic at all.

Pours hazy reddish pink with little to no head. Aroma is sweet and fruity with a tint of tart. Flavor is watery, sweet with no real high notes. A pretty weak product from the Sam Adams line up.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a reddish brown with a thin off white head. Sweet cranberry, spice and yeast. Malty, clove taste with a hint of cranberry taste. Too sweet for me.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A hazy, dark amber color with an off-white, creamy head. Has the scent of yeast & throat lozenges. An odd sweet & sour that doesn’t quite do it for me, almost like taking a bite from the good half of a piece of fruit and there’s a big dark bruise on the other side. Has the fruitiness and sweetness but there’s something amiss.
