Interesting brew here if you’re just looking for something different. Tastes exactly like you think it would - cherry cherry cherry. The one thing I didn’t like about this brew was I noticed on the label that cherry flavoring is added AFTER the brew process although it is brewed with cherries - still, that defeats the purpose of a good brew

A golden amber body is topped with little head, however a fair amount of lace is left behind. The aroma is full of sweet mirachino cherries with a slight hoppiness underneath. the flavor starts out similar to cherry soda, however the malt and hops soon show through.

My girlfriend loves this. The cherries are very pronounced. I remember hearing about this in my pre-beer days and thought it sounded interesting. If it’s one of those terribly uninspired package stores with minimal selection, I’ll most likely opt for this. As much as people knock Sam Adams, they continue to make good products. My only problem with this is that it fills you up really fast, so it’s not great with dinner or when you’d like to toss a couple back with the pals.

On a hot day, the overpowering cherry hits the spot. Very dry with a crisp finish. It’s not as bad as you’d think.

The wife really likes the stuff, but I think that the cherry flavor overpowers the beer.

This is a good fruity beer. You can really taste the cherry. At times it tastes like you are trying to drink cough medicine though.

Tastes like a Luden’s cherry cough drop dissolved in a beer. I had a lot of trouble getting past the first drink. Way too syrupy and sweet.

UPDATED: APR 9, 2004 Another forgettable beer by Boston Brewery. A weak, cheap wheat with an overpowering cherry flavor. At least it tastes like real cherries and less like syrup.
