Bad, just plain bad. Bought a sampler pack of several styles and this one was poured down the drain.

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.

Bottle out of the Sam Winter Pack. Pours to a hazy orangey reddish amberish with a pale almost reddish head. Aromas of cranberries and sugar. Very subtle yet up front tastes of cranberries, yet has a smooth finish. This is great to drink and goes down very easy and is a different tastes from the rest of the sam pack.

I like cranberries, but am not a big wheat beer fan. Since the wheat seems to be more pronounced in this beer, I would rather drink the Cherry Wheat than this. Having said all that, I’d drink it again, as it was not awful; it’s just not my first choice for a beer.

It’s full of flavor, but I just simply didn’t like the flavor. Very sour. Worst of the bunch in the winter pack.

Weak carbonation and head. A little hazy. Too cranberryish (tart) for my taste. Not a true lambic, should have been called ’Cranberry wheat’. I’ll try it again, but only if someone else is buying.

A light amber color with big white head. Has a nice cranberry aroma, and taste to it. overall a good lambic beer for me first time having a fruit beer.

This wasn’t my favorite beer. I like cranberries yet this was a little "too" cranberry for a beer. It was watery yet drinkable for the holidays.
