Default Sam Adams Cranberry Lambic tastes like ****

They have no right calling it Lambic. They should just call it sweet, slightly alcoholic, red, sparkling crap. There isn't a damned thing Lambic, beerlike or worth putting their name on it.

Am I the only one who thinks their Cherry Wheat tastes like cough syrup and bud light (crap), as well?

i am a fan of the cherry wheat. maybe its because i spent a lot of year as a bug light fan until i learned what real beer is, hahaha! i guess im one of the odd balls here, i like wheat beer and i like cherries so the combination works for me.

I've always liked the Cherry Wheat. Not a big fan of the cranberry Lambic though, and I have a couple of those left from a winter variety pack still in the fridge.

i have one left, every other beer in the pack was ok but that one will probably find its way down the drain. at least its another bottle for my american wheat!

Read the side of the Lambic...it has MAPLE SYRUP! What is that?!

I jokingly told my friend that the bearded dude from the commericals must have come in drunk one day and slurred "I don't care what kind of beer this is...it needs some freakin syrup!"

In all likelihood they knew the average drinker doesn't want a beer as sour as a lambic and came up with the sweetest thing they could find to balance it out, too bad maple syrup has no place in a lambic!
