The aroma is of a sour cherry, the appearance is a cloudy honey like color, the flavor is of fruit, bubblegum, the beer is smooth, overall better than I expected. Dextolen (151) - Michigan, USA - NOV 20, 2005
Some pretty harsh ratings here for a decent beer. Pleasant fruity aroma, sweet start with a tart finish. crzybob77 (530) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 24, 2005
An interesting but suprisingly tasty beer. Flavor and aroma are obviously dominated by fruity cranberries with some sourness and some wheaty flavor. I think I enjoy this beer more than the average rating on here. Certainly a very toned down lambic though, but sometimes the sourness of certain lambics is too much for me so I don;t mind too much.

Pours amber with a small head.Aroma and taste heavy of cranberries.If you dont like cranberries you wont like this.This would be good for Thanksgiving. Stonebrook (25) - USA - JAN 19, 2007
The cranberries are very noticable everywhere in this beer, and that is a good thing. The main taste is of course of cranberries but also of a light wheat flavor that finishes quite plesently, although a little tark. But a very good beer, for lovers of fruit, and one that everybody should try at least once.

Nice, copper brew with a tangy, citrus wine flavor. Sweetness and sourness both present, along with light hops. A nice change of pace from the Boston Beer Company. They continue to be good at making unusual beers more palatable and less strange for your average American drinker. cgarvieuk (24236) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 30, 2008
Bottle at Toms Glasgow tasting 2 ... Hazy amber ... yeasty with alittle fruit in nose ... sweet breadyy ... little malt... no real lambic character. VitaminR (540) - Colorado, USA - NOV 2, 2008
Sour wheat and floral cranberry nose. amber color w/deep pink hue, small soapy head. Sugary fruit tart sweetness with biscuit, mild bitterness. Mild carbonation, thinner body with a wine-like finish. Decent beer mild Lambic-style, and a great ’gateway’ beer to bridge someone into the world of sour beers machfive55 (358) - Columbia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 22, 2008
Poured an amber with a redish tint, not much head, but a very good carbonation. The beer had a nice malty, fruity aroma with cranberry dominance. The flavor was a nice mix of cranberry and sweetness that was very balanced. There was a slight sourness, but it is not over the top. I did not detect any horsey flavors that you might expect from a Lambic. The cranberry is certainly present in the flavor but not fake and not overdone. There was little alcohol presence and no hops at all in this beer. I am really surprised at the ratings this beer has received. In my opinion this beer is much better than many have rated it. Not an every day beer, but a good change for the holidays. TearsforBeers (183) - Ohio, USA - JAN 4, 2009
Pours a lovely deep cranberry color - hazy reddish amber when held up to light, witha small white head.
There’s actually some lambic funk in the aroma! I never expected that from Sam Adams! The aroma also has sweet malt, and cranberries.
The flavor is very nice, it is sweet, a bit acidic, sour, funky, and cranberry
Palate is acidic and effervescent.
Overall this is much better than I expected, very nice.
