Well, cannot say I liked it, but I drank both bottles from the pack I had last year. But I'm a country boy at heart, born and raised in moonshine country, so can drink most anything, plus I got it free - the sales rep came into the shop and said the packs were "out of date", that he would credit me, and that I should toss them. So I did - one at a time.

It's like the old joke - they wuz jes' right. Any better, an' he wouldn't have give them to me, any worse an' I couldn'a drunk 'em.

Just picked up a 6-pack of winter Lager a few days ago. Drank them with a family member and we both liked them.

I do enjoy the Sam Adams Black when it's out. I just picked up a 6er of the Winter Lager. It's strange because the warm spices give it an after taste that reminds me of the aftertaste of Swedish Snus Tobacco.

I too just bought a 6 pack of winter lager. It's definitely my fav seasonal beer. I was just introduced to a new brew from Sams....coastal Wheat I believe it is. This is their hefeweizen beer....solid beer.

I really like SA's Octoberfest, and for some reason I can still buy it here. Perhaps it's not a big seller in this market. If I see one I'll buy the SA winter mix, and take the Commander's warning into consideration when I try the lambic. I like their regular lager OK so they won't be a loss to me.

I mostly drink Micro Brews. But I do drink some Sam Adams, Michelob, etc. I like the Boston Lager, Octoberfest, and Winter Lager. Irish Red wasn't too bad either.

I find it shocking to say the least, but I've actually met people that not only like this beer they actually LOVE it. It's probably my least favorite Sam Adams beer along with Cherry Wheat. The rest of the Winter mix pack is GREAT though. I love Old Fezzi, Holiday Porter, and Winter Lager. The cinammon in the Winter Lager and Old Fezzi gives the beer a great flavor.

The Winter Lager is one of my favorite mass produced beers as well. Very tasty. I have a few bottles of Oktoberfest left in the fridge--also good, but I think the Winter Lager wins the contest there.

I usually get a couple cases of whatever they call their Winter Blends sampler. I like all except the Cranberry Lambric, but I have buddy who loves it - and I like to make a pork roast in the crock pot with it, so it doesn't go to waste. The others in their are an enjoyable winter diversion. And usually, I can pick it up for a reasonable price.

The Lambic also makes a great chicken marinade.

I ended up buying a 6er of the Winter Lager to give it a shot. Too bad I left it in the fridge and forgot about it and now I'm gone throughout the week.

So i ended up buying the Winter Classics. The spice in the Winter Lager isn't too bad. But I'm not sure about that Cranberry crap....might just stay in there and visit the mulch outside.

Yes, I will buy 2 cases of the seasonal mixture - only the Cranberry Lambric is something I will gift away or cook with. I have been doing this for the last few years, so, that's how much I enjoy them.

I love the idea of using the cranberry lambic to cook a pork roast. Add some more fresh cranberries to the pot, and serve with potatos and sauerkraut.
