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.

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.

An excellent substitute for cherry Nyquil. I like to taste the hops, malt, and barley more than the fruit. The cherries should be barely noticeable in the finish. Close to undrinkable for me.

Auburn color with a thin light beige head. Very strong cherry aroma. There was just too much cherry in the flavor making it almost sickeningly sweet. It doesn’t even taste like cherries, more like the cherry flavoring they use to make popsicles or something. I honestly didn’t bother finishing the bottle. This wasn’t horrible, but they really need to tone down the cherry or balance it better with more malt.

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.
