COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Sweet lord this beer is tart! Cranberry flavor takes over the flavor and never lets got for an unsatisfying, puke inducing mouthful.

First off, THIS IS NOT A SPONTANEOUSLY FERMENTED FRUIT LAMBIC!!! If you read their info on the beer they say it is "lambic style". (cranberries?? what cranberries??) I found it a bland, disappointing effort from Sam Adams.

Horrible. WAY too much cranberry flavor... This is probably what it would taste like if Ocean Sray were left out to ferment for a year.

Probably the worst beer Iíve ever had, and thatís saying alot considering Iím not that picky. It looks alright, but it tastes disgusting...the cranberry combined with the wheaty taste simply does not work. Donít even waste your time.

I can not begin to understand why they continue to brew this abomination year after year. Every aspect of it just screams cranberry juice vomit. Make it stop...

The worst idea Sam Adams ever had! I thought this beer would be amazing, but I was let down in a big way. It tastes like sour grapes and is way too syrupy for my tastes....fortunately the Winter sampler has 3 other amazing brews.

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

I donít have this beer on hand, but it left a bad enough impression that I believe I can still speak about how foul it is. Itís completely undrinkable. A single sip was enough to contort my face, and I had to expend all my power to keep from spitting it up. There isnít much more you can say about it than disgusting. I would gladly take a Steel Reserve over this any time.

I just didnít care for this at all. No taste whatsoever except for this acidic taste of cranberries. I will NEVER try this beer again.
