COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Samuel Adams Cherry Wheat® follows the centuries old American tradition of brewing beer with native ingredients, in this case Michigan cherries as well as a touch of honey. The sweet fruitiness of the cherries is balanced against the crisp, cereal note from the malted wheat and the subtle citrus flavor from the Noble hops. The end result is a sweet, refreshing beer that is light on the palate but long on complexity. Introduced in 1995 as a summer seasonal brew, Samuel Adams Cherry Wheat® developed a large enough following to be introduced as a year round style. Its distinct cherry character has made it one of the most unique and well liked styles of Samuel Adams® beer ever. Cherries are added at two different points during the brewing process. Once during the mash and again during finishing.

Not impressed at all, the aroma is satisfying but the overall taste just doesn't cut it

Pours transparent amber with large frothy white head. Aroma of cherries and hops. Flavor is (fortunately) not as sweet as aroma, but cherries still come through too strong. Tastes like a lager with cherry cough syrup added. To be fair I tried another, but the cherry additive is way overdone here without any other decent flavors to balance it out. I'll avoid this one in the future.

Did not enjoy, gave 3 away. Too much cherry flavor addative,not much of any "beer" taste. Too sweet. Serve as cold as fucking possible. Never again.

Just barely above a drain pour. The aroma is promising, but it is thin and reminded me of cherry cough syrup mixed with a Coors. It is not putrid if served very cold.

DrBeer (862) - Solna Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 19, 2003
Bottled. Pale amber colour. Very cherry nose with tones of maraschino (italian cherry liquer). Flavor with lots of cherry and wheat. Dry with slightly bitter finish. Totally whacky beer but in a good way. I love it.

Bottled. Yellow-brown. Fizzy, artificial and thin. A complete failure.

This is a pretty good beer, but it doesn't seem to be very wheaty. It's light amber in color with a decent head. Finish is dry. all in all a good beer.
