It poured a clear gold with a small white head. There was a definite, tart fruit flavor, the first imppression, that substituted nicely for the bittering hops. The mouthfeel was good and it left a pleasantly sweet aftertaste. Most of the characteristics of a Wheat with a little something extra. redave (166) - squaw valley, California, USA - JAN 30, 2007
What a refreshing beer! Being the hophead that i am, this was quenching, light, [if sweet] beer.
Sam Adams is great to provide their sampler packs, i then get to sample beers, i might not ever try.
Pours not the color i expected [pinkish] but rather amber...
Very white head, if thinnish, and no lace.
Some fruitish cranberry aroma.
Nice light crisp taste, great with dinner.

Very sour, yet that’s what lambic beers are, cranberry is noticable, not a bad beer, not a great beer, worth a try. Kyleisraaddd (19) - Marble Falls, Texas, USA - NOV 28, 2009
When I read "Cranberry Lambic", I thought "Woah, that can’t be good". But when I tried it, I was pleasantly surprised. To be noted, this was also my first fruit beer. Codythegreat (149) - Carrollton, Georgia, USA - DEC 17, 2009
Pours a dark hazy orange with a quickly dissapating white head. Has a slight aroma of cranberries but the tast has the cranberry infusion more obvious. Pretty well balanced

Bottle: Eyes closed this could be the real thing, fruity tart, nicely bitter. Food Pairing: Sour Apple Pie. SSKD814 (854) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2010
A- a copper color body with a thick white head. No hints of "cranberry" anywhere in the color. Doesn’t really look like a Lambic.
S-sour cranberries and yeast. pretty much in line.
P- The taste is dominated by sweet and sour cranberry flavor with a hint of yeast in the background. Good cranberry/beer combination.
O- its great and fruity if you like cranberry flavor. Pretty easy to drink too. However, its hard to find people who enjoy this. We bought SA multi-pack and I was the only one who would drink this one.

UPDATED: APR 9, 2009 A tasty seasonal beer available in the Sam Adams Holiday pack. It was fruitful and delicious. poisoneddwarf (2511) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - DEC 10, 2009
12 oz bottle. Aroma of tart cranberry, maple syrup--that’s what the label says, I know. Pours reddish brown with a thin head, nice lacing. Only faintly lambic in character. I taste apples, cranberries, grapes, cotton candy. Body is thin, carbonation slight--this doesn’t deplete the beers quality however. Finishes both tangy and sweet. Not bad. It’s definitely weird, though. mannika (140) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 27, 2009
Pours a cloudy reddish-orange. Aroma is of sweet fruits - taste has a bit of tartness, but not nearly as sour as I was expecting. Cranberry comes through a bit on the taste, but not overpowering - other fruitiness comes through as well. Overall quite nice.
