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.

As trappist ales rule pointed out this is no Lambic! Try Liefman's and you'll know what I mean. I don't know what I'd call this,... Shit comes to mind. This is far and away the worst beer produced by any micro I've ever had. I actually poured it down the drain after a couple sips. A true disgrace to the name Lambic and a testament to why people need to look deeper than the grocery store when looking for a good beer.

This beer combines the worst of the beer world and the worst part of cranberries into one loathesome brew. Very tart and nasty tasting. Thinner but not quite watery. Extremely bad aftertaste.

First of all this is not a lambic, I do not know why it is called that, it is nothing more than a cranberry wheat. It is bitter and sour and I poured it out without hesitation.

Normally I don’t mind beers with a little fruit added to it, but this concoction from Samuel Adams is just a miss all around. It doesn’t look bad on the pour - a little cloudy with a nice head on it, but the taste is hideous. The sourness of the cranberry doesn’t match well with the maltiness and bitterness of the brew.

LOUSY! What was the Boston Beer Company thinking when they made this one. My aunt had this stuff for her guests on Christmas Day. It was terrible. Blech!!! I had to drink punch Christmas Day because of this mess!!!

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2004 I would also serve this beer at my second wedding, but only to those guests that i didn't actually expect to attend.

Amber in color with effervesent diminishing head. Smells like cranberry. The taste was awfully sour and vile. Maybe I don't like lambics, but this beer was disgusting.

A poor attempt on creating a holiday treat. cranberry was too intense and overpowering(if you really like cranberries, this is your beer!). Very little sweetness in this beer--hard for me to enjoy.

this beer was awful. ive had it twice because i thought the first one might have just gone bad. but nope, i was dead wrong. it just didnt taste good. i made it through half of each of them before it went down the sink. except for warm skunked beer, this is the only beer i have ever not finished and put down the drain. i do not like to waste beer

i did not like this beer probably because i do not like cranberries but it just didn’t have a good flavor.
