Usually a fan of the flavored beers, but not so much a fan of this one. If the cherry taste weren’t so strong I might enjoy it. It’s a tad tart as well.

Shockingly, this fruit beer is very pleasant. It’s not really all that wheaty but is light and spicy on the palate with a decent but not large head. Problem is, the bottle says they added ’cherry flavor’, which sounds like syrup to me. Hell, it tastes good, and that’s the bottom line.

oddlly enough, one of the tastier fruity beers that i’ve tried - the cherry is a nice change from raspberry. Drink no more than one at a time....

Very easy to drink with the right amount of cherry. It gets a little over powering after 3 bottles. Fantastic head retention (due from the wheat) and great carbonation and mouth feel. Nothing really wrong with it. My first cherry...ah ah i guess you could say i ’popped this cherry’ ah ah ah! how witty a pun is that! ok i’m stopping now...no i will not go to hell because you want me to. Good beer.

Smells like cherry ice cream before tasting. Tastes like cherry slushy. Has a hit of cherry cough drop, also. The aftertaste is alright, though. I don’t think that I would drink more than one of these. I have been known to leave some in the bottle before, too, but since it is Sam, I have to be kind.

mild fruit wheat ale.

light, and would make a refreshing summer drink.

Icky. Might not be too bad if they just left it with the cherrys and didn’t add the cherry syrup. Disgusting aroma, flavour isn’t all that bad but isn’t exactly good either. The only beer my grandmother likes.

I just can’t believe that Sam Adams has the audacity to call this a beer. This is some vile shit. Ughhh. If you have any appreciation for wheat beers, lambics, or krieks don’t try this. You might puke. And then,... You’ll cry because, yes,... indeed someone actually calls this beer.
