2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a light reddish hue with a small pinkish head. The aroma is really light-perhaps some fruit. The taste has some cranberries, malts, and tartness. Something is off though. First, this is not a lambic, so why say so. Second, the beer is just really thin and weak while leaving artifical tastes. Not good, but not horrible.

bottled, at brewtopia beerfest. pretty strange-o. pale, amber with a faint head. detergent aroma but then some interesting brandy butter flavours. a bit on the sweet side but an original flavour at least

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dirty copper appearance with some head. Confusing fruit and creamed corn aroma with musty hoppiness. Body is semi-sour and fruity, but still maintains an American standard flavor. I applaud Sam Adams' willingness to attempr to brew a beer in this style, but it could have been done much better.

A Mes rate: Bottle at Tomís UGT Pt. 2.My god this was awful. Rather univiting cloudy light brown and it gets worse from there. Really nasty pukey sweet caramel. I couldnít smell it without feeling like I was going to gip. Undrinkable.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle part of a holiday pack. Pours orange in color with small whitish head. Aroma was fruity not necessarily just cranberries. Flavor is TOO SWEET. I get a touch of malt, some vanilla, with the cranberries. Light mouthfeel. Not one of my favorite SA brews.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2008 Bottle. Appearance: Pink amber, eggshell head. Aroma: Sweet, tart and fruity. Cranberry dominates. Also a little wheaty. Palate: Medium/light. Flavor: Very sweet cranberry. Kind of tart. Was a weird, dairy, almost yogurt like sourness. Overall: I poured half of this beer down the drain. Iím not crazy about cranberry drinks in general. This one was just to much for me. Worst of their winter 12 pack by far.

Just really not that great... not very much like your traditional tangy Belgian lambic. Iíd take a real one over this any day.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Thanks Anker for providing. Hazy reddish body with a medium off white head. Sweet fruity aroma with light caramel notes. Rather sweet flavour with lots of caramel and fruit. Expected it to be more tart from the cranberry. Ends up slightly sour and fruity.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Blind tasting. Oak notes in aroma, light berry, light vanilla. Oak up front followed up by beery fruit syrup. The type of fruit was tought to decipher in this being blind. little tartness & zero sourness. We were told ahead that it was labeled a fruit lambic
