This is the worst "beer" I've ever had in my life. I first had it when I was a depraved college kid who would play Edward 40 hands wth OE and still could not finish a bottle of this garbage. For years I thought all "lambics" were terrible because this garbage that I got in a Sam Adams sampler pack. I've since grown and learned the virtues of true sour beers and even more so want this to f--- off. It's not a lambic, it's a crap wheat beer with horrid cranberry flavoring and maple syrup that do not go at all and are not even a fraction as good as it sounds, in fact it's awful. The fact that this beer continues to exist would make aliens, if they existed, not want to land here because the world does not make sense and is too scary because this garbage swill continues to be sold to the masses rather than used to torture prisoners at Guantanamo Bay. You prevent the growth of America's youth by selling this garbage as "craft" beer, thereby ensuring a country of Bud drinking drones. If I could punch this beer in the face i would. I poured this down the drain to drink a bottle of Mohawk vodka instead because it was a better alternative. Burn in Hell, you POS "beer".

Color ok, mouthfeel ok, taste a--.

I'm surprised you named your company Sam Adams, not Benedict Arnold because your sewage swill has been a traitor to my mouth.

F U and F your entire family for making this wretch.

Piss poor excuse for a beer. I sincerely hope the Boston beer company listens to its customers and removes this product from the shelves of the beer consumer. It should instead be placed with the insect repellant. I believe flies wouldn't be foolish enough to attempt consuming this monstrosity. Also, don't lie to the consumer, you made a generic beer and put cranberry juice in it. This beer... this beverage is as close to lambic as the titanic is to successful.
