2002 edition. Cloudy golden brown with a sticky white head. Very tart cranberry aroma with some of that aroma of nature that lambics usually have, but it's not quite as strong as it is in others. Well, it sort of tastes like a lambic too. Sour and sweet cranberries and more of that slight "horse blanket" character. Again, not quite as strong as I'd expect from a lambic. It's sweeter than I'd expect as well, probably from the maple syrup used in brewing this. Malt is noticeable in the background. I've heard a lot of bad things about this beer, but it seems like it's in the general direction of lambic to me, and not a bad effort for a brewery that isn't specifically set up to brew lambics. Not the best, but hey, It's not so bad.
