Too much cherry. If I wanted cherry, I’d have a Dr. Pepper. There’s just no need for a cherry beer in this world.

Reminds me of hot weekends boating on the Illinois River. Very refreshing and drinkable. I would find it tough to drink this for an entire evening out at the bar, however. Strictly a summertime brew for me.

I really liked this. It’s good every now and then though, just to have something different.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2004 AHHHHH LOOK OUT, THE CHERRIES!!! HERE THEY COME, THE CHERRIES! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORerate. Ok, it's not that bad, still has a bad, stale hops flavor that I cant get around. The cherries dominate everything and is cloying. Smells like artificial cherry syrup, looks decent, but is clear and fizzy.

Not a bad beer, not a great beer. Clean tasting, but has more of a cherry candy taste to it then I was expecting.

This beer is a reminder that it is very rare for someone to use fruit flavors well while brewing beer. Every year I am tricked into trying a cherry or berry flavored beer that is inevitably disgusting. The cherry flavor is more similar to cherry candy or cough syrup than actual cherries. I keep searching for the beer that will actually have the subtle flavor of black and/or sour cherries, which has led me to waste many a beer drinking opportunity on a sickly sweet beer. Luckily, all is not lost - check out Jeff King’s work in Pontiac, michigan ...

Eating nuts while drinking Cherry Kool-Aid…Then licking your infected band-aid…What the hell is this?…

Sweet cherry flavour, which is complimented by the crisp palate.

This beer is tolerable. Sure there are hints of cherries, but is that a good thing. Not very flavorful, but then again I’m not a huge Samual Adams fan.

This beer rocks. A great summer beer. Love the cherry flavor and the dry finish provided by the malted wheat. A great summer beer.
