The first couple of drinks were pretty good, but after a few the taste begins to fade. Finishes with an artifical cherry taste. Didn’t find much wheat, but an abundance of cherries.

Chick’s dig this wheat beer and I wish I could to but it just is to sweet for me.This is the first Boston Beer Company effort that has dissappointed so I’ll cut them some slack

Very sweet and filled with loads of citrus juices. The bouquet was very scintillating and the color was inviting. Yet, I must be honest the taste was too fruity for my overall liking. Was a nice attribute to the hot fire I was sipping this in front of, but my taste buds would not immediately lend me to take part of a mulligan.

The cherry was prominent almost to the point of rudeness. I had to try hard to discern any wheatiness out of it...and I found it a bit hard to finish the glass without spoiling my palate.

This is a very good wheat beer. It is perfect for summertime. I would only drink one or two before moving on to something a little less sweet

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice cherry aroma, slightly cloudy slightly reddish appearance with a decent head. Fairly balanced flavor but a bit more to the sweet side. Would prefer if it were a bit thicker/richer, but it’s pretty good for something so commonly available.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hints of Cherry in the aroma. Nice reddish-brown in color with good head. Pretty strong cherry and sweet flavor finishing smoothly. Good crisp mouthfeel of a wheat beer. A very different beer not for everyone, especially if you don’t like Cherries.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Sweet/sour cherry aroma and taste, with a little bit of wheat malt peeking through. Accent is more on sweet than sour, by a long shot. Fizzy palate and body. Cherry flavor tastes fake. This is a very girly beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2004 Rerate On tap at Atlanta Airport - Sweet artificial aroma of cherries; mouthfeel - slightly thin, Decent dark golden appearance - good head. Cherry is only prominent flavor, tad too much carbonation. Original 2.8 Smooth drinking hut kind of had a cough syrup taste to it - too artificial - the cherry flavor was not subtle at all. No real sense that this was a wheat beer- no cloudiness etc.
