COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Who let their cherry popsicle melt in my beer? Artificial cherry syrup taste with a very weak tasting beer. Not dry or crisp to my palate, just bland. I’m not crazy about fruit beers, but I’ve had some good Belgian ones. This was just bad.

Too much cherry, its supposed to accent the beer not make it taste like beer flavored cherry cough syrup

Disgusting cough medicine taste. Doesn’t seem as quality as cherry beers from micros. I’ll never drink this one again.

I love this beer!!! One of my facorites. Strong cherry flavor. Goes excellent with food. A very good alternative to the Christmas beers during the holiday season.

An excellent fruit beer but you cannot, I repeat, cannot drink more than 1 in a sitting.
