Got this in a variety box. Aroma was the best part, after that, not so much. Just not a fruit in my beer guy Imaena (2315) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - JUN 9, 2013
Bottle. This tastes like cranberry handsoap going down. The smell is great. Once i hits the back of your palette its all over. retinadoc (236) - - MAY 10, 2013
Bottle. Fruity cranberry nose. Average carbonation. Slightly sweet with predominant cranberry flavor, and hint of nutmeg. Unexpected mixture of flavors. The characteristic SA base of toasted hops and caramel are very distant. Not as tasty as the SA Blueberry Hill, which is very tasty and still delivers solid hop and caramel flavors despite the very forward blueberry overtones. Slightly acidic finish.

It smelled pretty good and looked good as well. I swear, this beer had one of the worst aftertastes I've ever had the misfortune of tasting. Gave me goosebumps and not in a good way. I love Boston Lager and most other Sam Adams offerings but this was atrocious.

Single bottle. Expected this to be a drain pour, but was pleasantly surprised. Gorgeous appearance and sweet as expected, but less so than other Lambics I’ve had. As expected, the cranberry dominates. The individual parts are better than the whole. Another SA guilty pleasure to go with Cherry Wheat.

Aged. okay for a cherry beer not something id buy again. Bitter or tart from the cranberries of set the sweetness maybe to much. 12/31/12 jcweaver (768) - VA Beach, Virginia, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Bottle. Pours a light amber with a small beige head. Slightly sweet aroma of cranberries and light caramel. Sweet but lightly sour flavor of cranberries and light caramel with a hint of earthy hops. Was much more sour the first time I had it but has seemed to get sweeter each subsequent year. An average and alright beer, but far from a lambic.

I don’t believe in drain pours, so I after a few swallows I gave the rest of my pint to a friend. She liked it, I hated it. Too wine like and I hate wine. Yuck! LeRose (73) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 31, 2012
Possibly the worst beer ever? Certainly a nominee. Not much else to say. Only thing to do is write the 75 characters required to post the rating, I guess.

Smells like cranberry and a damp basement. Color is reddish. Taste is similar to drinking cranapple juice when you leave it on the counter overnight. Please drink at your own risk!
