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.

Don’t be pretentious--it’s a fruit beer and a good one.

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.
