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.

Just a slight cherry taste, but the wheat taste is definitely there. Not exactly light to drink (usually, I figure cherry beers are going to be girly beers - not so with this one). Yummy.

I appreciate what they were trying to accomplish with this beer, but the cherry taste just took too much command of the aroma and flavor. It was like an average wheat beer with strong notes of dimetapp elixer.

Really impressed. When my friend first described this beer to me, I was a little skeptical. However, after finishing a couple I decided I really like it. The cherry flavor is just suttle enouhg that it compliments the beer quite well, but not overpowering.

Well Sam Adams being a ’Behond a Doubt’ the best American Brewery strikes again. This isnt as good as octoberfest but its soemthing different. A very very nice wheat flavor. The cherry was ok, kind of like a cherry coke cherry tone to it but the wheat makes up for it. I wouldnt drink it daily but its something to try or have every now and then. I give it a thumbs up.
