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.

Smells incredible. One would assume that with such a great aroma that it would taste quite a bit better. It is not bad, not to fruity, but not one of Sam Adams best.

It looks and smell great, but lacking in the taste. I don’t enjoy fruit beer, so I rated it according to the style (against the others I’ve had in the category). I believe this has artificial flavors, I could be wrong, but it gave me heartburn and that’s usually a big sign of flavor additives.

Perhaps I just got a couple bad bottles of this, but I found it offensive.
