Bitter, crisp taste, with a nice hint of cranberries. Drank this with my turkey, found it boring after a few sips. Not as sweet and complex as I expected, but it did have a pleasent head and color to it. The aroma was lacking. An O.K. beer.

The body has a hazy appearance with a deep reddish tan, rust color. On top it has a small slightly pinkish white head. The head slowly fades down to a thick ring that hangs on well and leaves some lace on the glass. The aroma hits you with tart wheat and tart cranberry along with cherry cough syrup, sweet maple syrup and a hint of yeast. The flavor has an odd mix of tangy wheat, tart cranberry, cough syrup, sweet grain, maple syrup, and just a hint of some yeast. The finish quickly goes from syrupy sweet to tangy and slightly acidic and then hangs on the tongue. The body is medium to full with a heavy slick and almost sticky texture. Carbonation is delicate and gets lost in the heavy texture.

12oz bottle 7/02 (Old Notes)-Pours reddish with a small head. Aroma of sour, cranberry, and sweetness. Taste of the same. This light bodied brew is nicely balanced and not too shabby.

This must be the worst lambic I’ve had. It doesn’t really taste like it has much wild yeast in it, more like a mildly cranberry wheat beer.

It has been about 10+ years since Ive had this beer and decided to give it another try (plus my wife wanted to try it)
The beer poured decently with a orangish/reddish hue that passes through some light, has a decent off white head and leaves good lacing on the glass. The beer smells decent with a nice blend of sour fruit (cranberry and plum) and belgian sugars. The taste is medicore with a mild cranberry smoothness but not much else with it. The mouthfeel is decent as the beer is well carbonated, light bodied, and leaves you with a weak watery mouth. Overall, its exactly what it is advertised as, a Cranberry Lambic. I am not a fan of people who give it a bad rating because it wasnt an IPA or stout....it is what it says it is.

The only thing true to the beer is that it has a hint of cranberry. It is not a lambic and gives the style a bad name. I tried it skeptically, and was proved that my hunch was right. Boo!

Got this in a variety box. Aroma was the best part, after that, not so much. Just not a fruit in my beer guy

Bottle. This tastes like cranberry handsoap going down. The smell is great. Once i hits the back of your palette its all over.

Bottle. Fruity cranberry nose. Average carbonation. Slightly sweet with predominant cranberry flavor, and hint of nutmeg. Unexpected mixture of flavors. The characteristic SA base of toasted hops and caramel are very distant. Not as tasty as the SA Blueberry Hill, which is very tasty and still delivers solid hop and caramel flavors despite the very forward blueberry overtones. Slightly acidic finish.

It smelled pretty good and looked good as well. I swear, this beer had one of the worst aftertastes I've ever had the misfortune of tasting. Gave me goosebumps and not in a good way. I love Boston Lager and most other Sam Adams offerings but this was atrocious.
