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.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle. A- Cherry, spices, cough drops. A- Copper color, hazy liquid, minimal head. T- Sweet malts, mild cherry tones, cough syrup tones. P- Medium body, oily texture, average carbonation, spiced cherry finish. O- Not bad, but not great. Reminds me more of cough medicine than beer. I was felt quite unsatisfied.

Not a big fan of this. The wheat character offers the beer a strange mouthfeel and the weak cherry flavor is medicinal.

Metalchopz (2120) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 25, 2013
Enjoyed at the Yard House at Red Rock Resort in Las Vegas. Pours a slight hazy golden-amber colour with a small white head. Sweet cherry extract aromas with some light wheat, kind of Amaretto-like. The cherries are there in the taste, but not as syrupy as expected. Well-blended with the grain. Refreshing, but a little too sweet for my likings. Still worth trying, but can only have one per session.

11/1/2009. From bottle. Golden yellow with a white head. Wheat, cereal, malt and artificial cherry flavors. Bready flavors, somewhat tart with a combination of hops and cherries. Not for me.

Bottle. Clear golden pour with thin white lacing. Cherry syrup, wheat and perfume? Strong almost artificial smell. Light body with good carbonation. Almost artificial flavor throughout the body
