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.

"Lambic" /Austin Powers

It's an okay fruit beer, but calling it a Lambic is ridiculous.

To call this a Lambic is an insult to the entire country of Belgium. No words for how awful this is.
