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.

UPDATED: MAY 10, 2003 A nice limpid golden amber to copper color with a modest head and decent lace to coat the glass, Nose has a nice sweet hint of cherries, and the underlying malts add much to the appeal. Start sweet, the top light in its feel, the finish overly acidic, the hops adequate with the aftertaste dry. A drinkable beer, but not something I'm wild about, but many will like it.

I was pleasantly suprised. I can’t say that fruit beers are one of my favorite styles. However, this beer was pretty good. The cherries were a bit on the heavy side, but the crisp wheat flavor did a nice job of rounding out the flavor. The slight pink color was different as well and made for a real summery drink.

I don’t know what these people are talking about. This beer is great. If you like Cherries, and you like berr than you will like this. It has a definately strong cherry taste, and a wonderful aroma. If you don’t like fruity beers than avoid this because cherry is its defining characteristic. I thought the flavor was great, and it is one of the best smelling beers I have ever sniffed.

Not bad at all. Was expecting something disgusting. Goes well with the Florida humidity and food as well. Not a stellar beer but a definite winner in the session beer category.

I have had it with the iceman and it is shitty. This brewery has taken an American legend and made a mockery of him. Its alright for your begining beer drinker but it is terrible overall.

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....
