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.

I really liked this beer. It is a good chhristmas time drink. Has a nice but not to strong cranberry taste to it. epf33 (228) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - OCT 21, 2008
'fruity' taste might be a bit of an understatement. and the wheat undertone is delightful. mildly sour aftertaste. chandler0201 (650) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 22, 2008
Pours red with off white head. Aroma of vanilla and some hops and hint of cranberry. Cranberry really comes out in the flavor which I found even and satisfying. Good lambic.

UPDATED: APR 9, 2009 A tasty seasonal beer available in the Sam Adams Holiday pack. It was fruitful and delicious. poisoneddwarf (2690) - 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. Metalchopz (3680) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 15, 2010
Had this one on our trip to Nashville. Left over from a friend’s Christmas season (as it does say best before April). Pours a hazy orange-red colour with a pale pink creamy head and has decent retention and lace. I was quite surprise to smell bananas more than anything else. I guess it is from their wheat (the same used in their Hefeweizen). The cranberries are light in the background. The mouthfeel is quite sweet and semi-syrupy. The taste of the fruit are present, but again, the strong bananas come in to take over, right into the aftertaste. I guess when this beer expires its freshness, the cranberries disappears but the wheat stays strong. Just wondering about the lambic part ?? beerscout (298) - New Windsor, New York, USA - AUG 11, 2012
Bottle. Pours a cloudy golden amber color. Fluffy off-white head. Aroma of cranberries, and mixed berries, and yeast and malt. Flavor was tangy cranberry and wheaty malts. Easy on the palate. Touch of everything I expect in a fruit beer.
