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.

Dear Jim Koch, Get your fruit out of my beer. Such an awful repugnant idea to begin with, I was desperately hoping to be pleasantly surprised, but alas, this beer made my gums bleed and satanís face smile. What an awful and miserable waste of crappy light beer it is to ruin said crappy beer with cranberries. Sam, take your crapberry lambic (which isnít a lambic) and peddle it elsewhere.

12 fl oz bottle. Had this out of a 2007 Sam Adams Seasonal Selection box. Oh deary, deary me, what was that? If you like cranberries, just stick to cranberry juice Ė and save yourself some money. The Sam Adams Cranberry Lambric is possibly the worst beer of any sort that I have ever tried. It was way too sweet and the dominance of the cranberries was just too much. The remainder of this bottle went straight down the sink. The second bottle in the selection box was given to someone I donít like. To be honest, the entire 2007 winter selection was disappointing for me.

Bottle-The worst of the seasonal pack and the worst Sam Adams I have ever had. Just nasty man, no convulsions or dry heaves but it generally sucked ass.

Imagine cranberry sauce unnaturally fermenting in feces, and then you have the flavor of this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Full of cranberries... but not a taste I like in my beer. Tastes like bitter fruit juice, unbalanced, tart, and sour.

Jan. 5, 2005; 12 oz. bottle. An unwelcome stowaway in the Samuel Adams winter sampler pack. Sour and acidic; smells like a barrel of rotting fruit. Had me searching the corners of the back room in hopes of finding a forgotten Budweiser to quench my thirst. One of the most ill-conceived products Iíve encountered from an otherwise reputable brewer.

Bottle. I was rather excited when I cracked this one open but I couldnít finish it, awful stuff. Red colour. Odd fruity aroma. Strange sweet flavour, definitely not drinkable. Spare the cranberries for the turkey...
