Default Sam Adams Cranberry Lambic

Just tried it for the first time and I had to choke it down. My first lambic though. Anybody like this beer?

That is not a lambic. It is in my top five most vile beverages of all time. Unbelievably, there are people who like and even love this beer. They are sad souls and I pity them. However, they say there is a sucker born every second.

I wasn't so naive as to think it actually was lambic. A brewery of that size could never keep up the quality. But wow. This is disgusting.

If it's anywhere near as bad as their Cherry Wheat, I hope you didn't buy a whole sixer.

No beer snob here. You already know where this is is headed.

I had this several years ago - why do they torture us?

True dat. Absolutely foul. I have three Cherry Wheats in the cheap-and-domestic fridge, and there ain't no one who will touch 'em.

I got it in the winter mix pack. Cherry Wheat is bad. But I can't believe this stuff is on the market.

That seems to be a love-it-or-hate-it beer, with no middle ground, and most people hating it. SWMBO(who loves Belgian Pale Ales and Trappists), my neighbor(and fellow homebrewer), and I all hate it, and yet another neighbor loves it and wishes that it was available in 6-pack form.
