2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

Clean - slightly artificial aroma of berries - can’t swear if they are cranberries or not. Nice cloudy reddish appearance with a lightly lacing head. Full bodied flavor - with a bit of an artificial aftertaste. Goes down smooth - served well as a Christmas Eve night cap. Thanks to Aurelius for supplying this.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
RE-rate Medium gold color, medium head. Slightly fruit aroma. OK.. Its not really a lambic, but it’s a medium bodied fruit beer. Slightly tart, and somewhat sweet, slightly malty. There is a little of that sweet/sour taste thing going on here. Nice drinking beer, cranberry flavor is a little light, but its drinkable . Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter, some sweetness in aftertaste.

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.

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.

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2008 12 oz bottle out of the winter variety pack. Aroma is cranberry jelly. Taste is very sweet and some wheat. Not a bad fruit beer. I don’t think I could have more than one of these.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. AVOID. Bright red-orange with thick rocky head. Alright so far...Aroma is...candy, yeasty, and sour like bad sangria. Sweet, sticky palate. Appalling that they would call this a lambic, for shame. It’s nothing close. It’s just a disgusting strawberry sweet-sour candy beer and I could not finish. AVOID.

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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled via variety pack and from a 12-oz bottle at Cellar’s Wine & Spirits in St Paul, MN. Pours a semi-clear orange amber brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that dissipates clean. Aroma of tart cranberry and tart berries with a touch of multi-grain malt. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonation with a complex mixture of tart berry, multi-grain and wheat malt and some grassy hops. Finish is slightly tart and bitter but nothing even close to the Belgian lambics.
