1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 1/20
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2007 True amber hue with solid head that stayed with it. The aroma is almost medicinal. Flavor-wise, this is too waaaaaaaay sweet for my palate, with a super-tart berry, champagne-y character. Iíve really tried, but this is one of the very few beers I canít even force down a glass of and wouldnít offer it to friends.

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 didnít dislike it - even though I went in expecting to.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Ruddy red amber color, little head. The nose is very sweet and acidic, cranberry flavors, I suppose. The taste is sweet, sugary, terse with a somewhat tart finish. The bodyís watery and uninteresting. Overall, a beer I really donít have much feeling for - I couldnít finish my bottle.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a slightly hazy orange gold with a thin head. Has an aroma of clove, banana, and some tart cranberries. It actually smells pretty good! Wow, nevermind. This tastes pretty bad. Its got a watered down cranberry juice flavor with a mild clove finish. Kind of thin. At least it smells good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Honestly I didnít think it was that bad, at least not for the rating it has. Sweet/tart cranberry flavor, perhaps its because Iím such a fan of cranberry juice that I enjoyed this one.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle: A rather sour and skunky smell. Grassy with light cranberry and lemon. Pours a transparent dark gold with a minimal head. Grassy and skunky with some cranberry and lemon tartness in the finish. Rule me out as a fan of this beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle massive thanks to hopscotch! Pours a muddy brown, but nice head. Aroma is lightly aciic, fruity, lacking somewhat but wheaty notes and quite unusal indeed. Taste is a strange sensation that takes quite a while to get used too, but thin cranberry juice is very noticeable aswell as other acidic dry fruit flavours. Theres no denying this isnt a top beer but its refreshing and im quite glad i have another.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2007 Poured a gold orange color with a medium sized fluffy white head. Aroma of berry and malt. Not a lambic, more of a sweet cranberry drink. Not all that enjoyable.

A bit of silliness from the Boston Beer Company, using Lambic in the name. This fruity wheat ale pours an amber body with pink highlights and a short-lived off-white head. The nose is a dusty, tart cranberry. The flavor is sweet cranberry, a bit of wheat, and a very mild fruity tartness. Drinkable, but certainly no Lambic.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Had this as part of the Winter Pack that a friend brought over this evening. Pours a reddish amber. The nose has a malted tartness to it along with soured fruit. The body with basically a standard ale with a sour or acidic fruit flavor added to it. Finishes with light tartness and some acidity. This wasn't bad but is the furthest thing I've ever seen from a lambic.
