UPDATED: NOV 21, 2006 A bit light, but a wonderful cherry flavor and aroma. Also a very yeasty character. Very enjoyable. Has over time become a favorite that I visit from time to time.

A nice light beer, with a hint of fruit. Have to be careful when mixing with food. A nice one to discover at a pub without much selection.

Cherry taste, wheaty overtones. Cherry taste too fake. Not impressed with this Sammy.

Way to fruity. If this is what youíre into then why not have a cherry hooker or some other fruity drink.

Slightly medicinal tasting, and it smells like artificial flavoring. Canít say I like this one much. RERATE: After having a few cans of black cherry soda today, I decided to give this one another try tonight. It still smells artificial, but it comes off as more refreshing than before, with a bit of malt that I hadnít noticed the first time. Not as bad as I originally thought, but not great.

A very crisp, refreshing beer with a nice cherry taste to it. Although itís not something I could drink all of the time, A nice refreshing beer for those hot summer days.

Crisp and clean with a bitter hop snap. Cherry flavor was a little too faint.

Appearance nothiní special -- ok head; aroma very sweet-cherry, very little else. Flavor much more wheaty than cherry-sweet/sour; tasted kind of flat to me. Body ok. This was probably the first fruit-flavored beer I ever had, and certainly I started exploring the lambics in part because of this; I owe Sammy some gratitude for this and the Double Bock for sure -- it doesnít make this beer taste any better to me now, unfortunately.

I like this, and I donít see the comparison with the lambics, and please bear in mind that I love the taste of Kriek. This, however, isnít so sweet and fruity as to be overpowering. It smells amazing, looks very nice and from the first sip you know that is is a beer with cherry flavor and not the other way around. I like this one alot and Iím glad I got a sixer of it and not just a single. Smooth from start to finish.

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
