Samuel Adamsģ Cranberry Lambic is a fruit beer that draws its flavor not just from the cranberries it is brewed with, but also from the unique fermentation character imparted by the rare wild yeast strain. The result is a flavor rich in fruitiness and reminiscent of cranberries and bananas, cloves and nutmeg. The yeast fermentation also will create a slight sourness on the sides of the palate, a signature of the original Lambic style which, with the subtle cereal note from the wheat malt, remind its drinker that, as fruity a beer as this is, it is still a beer.

From Samís Winter MIx. Poured orange amber with foamy head. Aromas of cranberry, red wine. Thin body is similar to a pale, while itís finish is sour, tart and even a little offensive. I donít know what else to say about this one.? I guess itís not my thing.

Had a promising smell of juicy, tart cranberries and a hint of maltiness. Nice hazy honey color with a touch of pink and a white head. Thatís where it ends. As I took one sip, i gagged and almost vomited. There was something in the taste that was foul and moldy and I donít care to taste it again to figure it out. I enjoy fruit beers and lambic all the same, but there was something awful with the flavor and the bottle wasnít even skunked. The only beer that Iíve ever had that made me want to vomit; congrats sam adams.

Pours amber, almost a cider color. Citrus armoa, bitter cranberry. Semi-tart cranberry finish with hint of cider apple. because I do not love the ciderís I rank this lower. A average beer.

When I read "Cranberry Lambic", I thought "Woah, that canít be good". But when I tried it, I was pleasantly surprised. To be noted, this was also my first fruit beer.

Two bottles of this came in the SA winter mix pack. Had a few sips of one bottle before pouring down the drain. My wife and I are currently debating which hated relative to serve it to over the holidays. Utterly atrocious with no redeeming value. Doesnít even taste like cranberries.

It tasted like a watery Sam Adams Boston Lager (which I love) with cough syrup added! Like a Cherry Coke of old, this was very sweet, like a Shirley Temple. Too much to handle. Couldnít finish it.

A big disappointment! I felt like I was trying to cure a bladder infection ,nevermind enjoy a brew. I could not even finish this one. DO NOT BUY. I must admit I am not a big Lambic drinker but lets be serious ,this is a bad beer. The oversweet attack overrides any hope of tasting what the brew may have to offer.
