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.
