I am a Big SA supporter and i just cant get the taste of this beer to agree with my taste buds,,,it leave a rather bad after taste and i am not one for the fruit beers although the cherry in this is not very distinct

I would have to say it is the only Sam Adams I don’t go for.

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2005 ReRate-one of the first beers i sampled back 3 years ago. pours a bright orange hue with some haze. nice sudsy white head. cherry aroma that didn’t really smell that artificial-more like a pie than cough surup. flavors are grainy malt, cherry sweetness, but the cherry flavor gets a little to big here. Some hop flavors in the finish. Its not that bad, but it could be done better. Just a little too much cherry flavor.

A fine product from Sam Adams. Not as fruity in my opinion as some fruity beers.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2003 Sweet, but I like that most of the time. Smells GREAT! It is an amazing site to get the perfect pour into a pub glass. Its appearence there just beckons to me. The taste is like a dream, a very sweet dream with flowers, girls, and more beer.

My first stab at a fruit/wheat combination beer. I feel like I threw a strike. WOW! Exceeded my expectations in every respect. I sometimes find myself holding my breath before I take a swig of brew, not with this one. The aroma is pleasant without being overpowering. I have heard many beers being described as having an amber color - this is my definition of amber. As for flavor and palate I could give it a 10 and a 5 respectively if there was just a little more bitterness to the finish. Though it does have a very complex taste. I couldn’t drink many of these, but since I don’t go overboard anyway, this could easily become my favorite beer.

Oh this was awful. Believe me, I usually really like Sam Adams, but this was like bad cold medicine.

Good taste and good looks, but for whatever reason I cannot drink too much of this beer. I would have rated it higher if it didn’t get kind of gross by the end of the pint. Otherwise a very good beer.
