4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2014 Pours a light amber with a nice head and lasting lacing. Wonderful nose of cherry. Light medium body with a smooth feel. Low average carbonation. Crisp with a good burst of cherry flavor. Lightly hopped as it should be. My SA favorite and one of the reasons I started homebrewing. I’ve been drinking this beer since 1995. When you get a good bottle (very crisp finish and tart cherry flavor), this one is hard to beat. However, over the years, they have had quality problems. The last few years they have been more consistent.

Tastes like cherry syrup. Has potential, but doesn?t quite work for me. Needs to reduce the cherry.

This is not for me. All I get is fake cherry flavouring. It even says on the label "with real cherries and natural flavours added" I’d leave the real cherries and drop the flavours. With respect this is the sort of beer that divides opinion. Think I’m clear on where I sit.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 24.06.2013, tap @ Doyle’s Cafe, Boston:
Small creamy shortlasting head. Aroma is lots of fresh cherries, wheat, sugar, hay, caramel. Taste is slightly fruity, wheat, cherries, hay, grass, yeast. Little bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel. Nice one, not artificial like they often are.

Sam Adams Cherry Wheat is an excellent year round beer. It has a dark amber color with an aroma of ripe cherries. A very smooth beer with a slightly sweet finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy, golden orange with a one finger,off-white head that leaves tight lacing. Slight sediment can be seen through the haze.
Aroma is of black cherry and not much else.
Taste is a balanced sweet/sour/bitter with a refreshing, bready, cherry aftertaste.
Medium body and carbonation.Slightly bubbly, mouth feel.
A pretty good fruity beer. I can see people who don’t like beer liking this. Not sickeningly sweet with lots of flavour.

A very good beer that isn’t overly sweet. Has a very distictive cheery smell, wth a great combination of cherry and wheat taste. A very good beer.
