You know, C P time (Beer of the Week Take 1)


Woooow i'm late! Sorry, i promised Beer of the Week on Monday, it is nearing Thursday! Let me Explain.
I moved on Saturday and yea thats it (it sounded better in my head)

BEER OF THE WEEK: Cranberry Lambic

Just in time for the Holidays Samuel Adams unleashes a Winter Classics Variety Pack, two bottles of six distinctive beers. And of the 6ix, Cranberry Lambic will likely catch your eye first and disappoint you the most. If you are like me the word "lambic" leaves you with a dumb look on your face. You can relax because this is not a real lambic. Just as champagne is not champagne unless it is bottled in Champagne, France :: a lambic is not a lambic unless it is brewed in Pajottenland, Belgium. Aside from that minor detail a lambic is brewed using spontaneous fermentation and possess a clear vinous finish, Cranberry Lambic does not-and that maybe a good thing.

Don't Drink This Cold-I'll be honest, this beer isn't great, but it does deserve more credit, the balance between cranberry and yeast is impeccable; the finish is crisp and light like a wine, less the vinous/lambic feel. It does great before, during and after dinner, this unique "Boston Lambic" is worth an unbiased try. Buy the Variety Pack, (the beer is only available in the VP, and was M.I.A. for the last two year) you get 5ive awesome beers and one iffy one, and if you hate it you can pass it off to a friend.

Eat Drink and be Merry.
