I've never had it, but I hate Lambics anyway, and I can't imagine this would be any better tasting. Wait, I thought this was about their Cranberry Wit... Oh I'm confused. Now I'm not sure which one is worse.

probably one of the worst beers I've ever had.

i don't know how they get away with labeling it as a lambic.

i used to hate that it came in the winter mix pack, now i just don't give a sh*t because everything else in that pack turned to garbage.

haha I have a cherry wheat in the downstairs fridge and a Cranberry lambic in the upstairs fridge. Nobody will drink either one. I agree they tie for the worst beer's I've ever drank.

I got one of their holiday samplers last year, and just threw out the last of the cranberry lambics last week. Having that in their sampler means I simply will not buy another one of their sampler cases. I am not going to pay for beer I know full well in advance I am going to have to pitch. That is alcohol abuse.

I picked up two more bottles of this vomit last night. Picked up the holiday pack. Only way to get fezziwg and the holiday porter.

No KIDDING... I have a friend that LOVES that crap to the point that it is the only beer he keeps in his house. So of course, it's "You want a beer?"... nasty.
