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

ajnepple (2272) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - MAY 10, 2014
12 oz bottle from Evergreen Discount, best by 9/14, 5.3%. Orange and pretty clear appearance with a minimal beige head, quickly diminishing. Pleasant aroma of fresh cherries, pie crust, light malts, light honey and a touch of hops. Flavor is cherries, fruity, mild sweetness, light bitterness. Light body, crisp, somewhat, amply carbonated and easy to drink. Great aroma.

chinchill (1954) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 9, 2014
12 oz bottle served in a Weissbier glass. With a large, creamy bone-colored head over a bubbly golden body, it filled the glass to over the .5L mark. Thick foamy lacing gets left on the glass. Feel: light and very smooth body with excellent carbonation. There’s plenty of cherry flavor in this fruit-wheat, but not so much as to mask the grainy taste of the wheat

bottle. Light amber with small head. Bland wheat beer with some light cherry. At one point, I remember thinking this was a flavorful beer. How times have changed.

John25 (562) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - MAR 27, 2014
Bottle. Orangey gold with a lot of active carbonation and a thick head. The aroma is wheat, bready grains, and some cherry. The taste is basically a light wheat beer with a touch of tart cherry flavor and honey. Drinkable, smooth, easy. The honey adds to the mouthfeel making it a little sweet and smooth but, the aftertaste lingers and is pretty bad. This isn’t anything special but, it may be my favorite Sam brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
