I cracked one of these open after a recommendation from a buddy. Good lord, was that a mistake. It pours a hazy golden color with a minimal head. The aroma is of cherry cough drop, and in the worst way possible. Upon tasting, there is a fleeting taste of a wheat beer before becoming over-powered by the taste of cherry cough syrup. This beer, for me, was wretched. I was unable to finish it.

12 oz refrigerated bottle poured into a weissbier glass. Pretty good looking. Clear and light golden. Fairly clear, though a tad hazy. Solid lasting white two-finger hear. Nose is strong sweet cherry and wheat. Body is appropriate, though a tad thin. Dry. Almost crisp, but not quite. Taste is also sweet cherry and wheat. Not the most complex beer, but enjoyable and refreshing nonetheless.

Not great, not terrible. But the cherry-beer combo is slightly displeasing, but then again, Iím a non-flavored beer kinda dude. Def better than other flavored beers on the market, and although the cherry flavor in this beer is similar to Cherry Coke the drinking experience is not as bad as Cherry Coke, no pungent syrupy taste, this a wheat beer afterall.

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.

Bottle - good size foamy head, hazy dark straw color, big (bigger than expected) cherry aroma and flavor, sweet wheat backbone, ok overall

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
