Bottle. Pours a light red with thick tan head that dissipates quickly. Smells of cranberries. Sweet cranberry taste that gives way to a nice tart finish. Very refreshing without the dry taste you’d think would accompany a cranberry beer. Tastes nothing like a good quality lambic but this is what a fruit beer should taste like. If this was classified as a lambic I’d rate it horribly but as a fruit beer it’s great! If you’re gonna make a beer that’s supposed to taste like a fruit then make it taste like one. This does the job. Bov (13221) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 27, 2000

A deep amber color with no head. This had cheery in the nose that was very subtle but fruity. This was a very tart and sweet brew all throughout. It was rich and flavorful and the cranberry was very intresting and this was a brew that needs to sit for a while to mature. I want more for a time experiment.

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.

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. ghawener (1614) - Santa Tecla, EL SALVADOR - DEC 31, 2009
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.
