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.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2008 Bottle. Appearance: Pink amber, eggshell head. Aroma: Sweet, tart and fruity. Cranberry dominates. Also a little wheaty. Palate: Medium/light. Flavor: Very sweet cranberry. Kind of tart. Was a weird, dairy, almost yogurt like sourness. Overall: I poured half of this beer down the drain. I’m not crazy about cranberry drinks in general. This one was just to much for me. Worst of their winter 12 pack by far.

Bottle. Pinkish beer with an off-white head. Sweet, tart, light fruit roll-up aroma. Fruit roll-up flavor with some malt. Medium body. Fruit roll-up lingers. Got worse as I drank more.

Bottle. Pours a light reddish hue with a small pinkish head. The aroma is really light-perhaps some fruit. The taste has some cranberries, malts, and tartness. Something is off though. First, this is not a lambic, so why say so. Second, the beer is just really thin and weak while leaving artifical tastes. Not good, but not horrible.

Just really not that great... not very much like your traditional tangy Belgian lambic. I’d take a real one over this any day.

Courtesy of Quake1028. Pours a clear bright copper with lasting off white foam ring. The aroma starts off with some musty funk followed by mild notes of cranberry and fruity tartness. It tastes just like the aroma if not a bit fruitier. It starts with a hit of mustiness mixed with cranberry juice. Interesting combination. Midway a sugary sweetness takes hold for a moment or two before both the mild funk and cranberries return to bring the experience to a close.

Bottle. Thanks Anker for providing. Hazy reddish body with a medium off white head. Sweet fruity aroma with light caramel notes. Rather sweet flavour with lots of caramel and fruit. Expected it to be more tart from the cranberry. Ends up slightly sour and fruity.

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.

jackl (8071) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 18, 2011
Bottle. Ruddy red amber color, little head. The nose is very sweet and acidic, cranberry flavors, I suppose. The taste is sweet, sugary, terse with a somewhat tart finish. The body’s watery and uninteresting. Overall, a beer I really don’t have much feeling for - I couldn’t finish my bottle.

Honestly I didn’t think it was that bad, at least not for the rating it has. Sweet/tart cranberry flavor, perhaps its because I’m such a fan of cranberry juice that I enjoyed this one.
