In Search of Cranberry Lambic

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for the Belgian Cranberry Lambic that comes in a bottle the size of a wine bottle, not the one from Samuel Adams.

Has this really been discontinued? Is anyone able to find any now? I'd really like to track some down.

beershoppers.com offers a variety of Belgian lambics - strawberry, peach, raspberry, lemon, currant, apricot, pineapple, banana, cherry, plum ... but no cranberry.

Cranberry being a uniquely American fruit, I'd guess you'd need to find a U.S. craft brewer to score. Good luck.

You may be thinking of Kriek, which is made with small, sour cherries. This was the inspiration for the Sam Adams brew. It's one of the easier Lambics to find.

Ok,

Here are the details of what I'm looking for.... (cranberry variety)

Looking for Lindemans brand.
I am typing this info here directly from the label off their Black Currant Lambic which is my current favorite.

750 ml
Belgian Cassis Ale (Cassis = Currants)
Vlezenbeek, Belgium
Brouwerij
Lindemans (Lindemans Farm Brewery)
Product of Belgium

Kreik = Cherry
Lindeman's Kreik Lambic Not looking for cherry.

I am asking because there was a discussion several months ago about cranberry lambic and I have been looking for it ever since. The Sam Adams version isn't comparable to this brand. Lindemans rocks! Or maybe Lindemans never made it. What brand were those of you referring to in the discussion months ago? (I'm pretty sure is wasn't Sam Adams, I've heard their cranberry lambic doesn't compare to the authentic Belgian Co's which is to be expected.)

DaveB,

I'm a little confused by your last post. Wasn't saying they were, just saying it's my favorite of the varieties they have.

I am looking for Lindemans Cranberry Lambic.

Thanks for your resonses everyone!

My apologies for a rather grumpy response. I think my brain was out on break when I posted it.
