COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Samuel Adams® 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.

For an American macro attempt at a lambic it is ok. But compared to real lambics it falls short. A bit too tart. Easy to drink on Thanksgiving, but not too much otherwise. Cranberry flavor is there for sure...just an ok beer.

BVery (11364) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - OCT 2, 2009
BOTTLE: reddish pink pour, somewhat creamy head. Nose is cranberry and honey. Taste is cranberry, no where near as tart as I expected it would be. Very easy drinking, without much character.

hopscotch (11245) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2003 I'm glad this is classified as a fruit beer instead of a lambic. Nothing lambic-like about it. A good looking, but very mediocre beer. Light and refreshing so it will appeal to many palates. However, BBC shouldn't be allowed to market this as a "lambic." It's like allowing a California winery to refer to its "sparkling wine" as "Champagne." Kinda pisses me off. Misleads the uneducated.
