COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Samuel Adams Cherry Wheatģ 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 Wheatģ 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 Adamsģ beer ever. Cherries are added at two different points during the brewing process. Once during the mash and again during finishing.

I remember drinking this beer about 20 years ago at a hometown bar, pounding about 3-5 drafts at a time while eating yummy fried bar food and sandwiches. Iím sure I bought some in the bottle too, but I am doing this review mostly based on old memories...but I donít think the beer has changed since then. Definitely on the lighter side, slightly red, but mostly that pale wheaty color you see from most wheat beers. You do notice the cherry in both the aroma and taste. After a few of them it started to remind me of drinking cherry 7-up. I donít know if itís worthy of the "Brewmaster Collection" label, but because of itís popularity I can see why. Itís a good beer worth trying. I really havenít had too many other cherry wheats to compare.

Bottle at Publix supermarket. Tasted like someone took the liquid from a bottle of Maraschino Cherries, mixed it with some spring water, and then added a tablespoon of alcohol. Terrible! So disappointed...as this was my very first Samuel Adams, and had always wanted to try something brewed by them. Unfortunately this was a bad first experience. Hopefully future ones wonít be.

12 oz bottle. Once you pop the cap off this one you get a huge blast of fresh pie cherry aroma. Lucky for me I really like cherry, otherwise this beer is definitely not for you. Itís not like the cherry flavor is subtle. Good morning beer in my opinion. The flavor isnít bad. This is a try once a year beer for me.

Zesty cherry aroma. Golden mild body with a reddish hue and faint haze. White foamed head is strong at first at about two finger height which laces the glass nicely as it reluctantly fades. Mild bitterness. Cherry is noticeable in the taste but not overpowering. Subdued malt character to balance it out. Mild sweetness and light tart finish.

Tap@Sam Adams Toasts Miami bar, Miami Airport. Amber orangey beer with a light head. The aroma is cherry with sharpness, and the flavour is dry, mildly bitter with plenty of cherry sweetness and a little sourness. Overall a nice variety wheat beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
