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.

Aroma is cherry, taste of cherry, grains, small hop presence. Its a lot of cherry blended well. For the cherry lover, a pretty good beer.

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

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance had a pale amber body, small white head, thin lacing sliding quickly into the body.
The smell had some cherries up front, faint malt, slight wheat and yeast in the background more so as the beer warms.
The taste was sweet and tart at different times through the cherries, wheat plays a slight part, yeast comes out to help balance.
The palate was about a light to medium, sessionable, sweet aftertaste and finish.
Overall, this is a good beer to get those malt drinkers over to the beer side, yet I would still have it again.

Bottle from a random grocery store. Pours a slightly hazy gold with spotty off white head. Aroma of overwhelming cherries. Taste basically of carbonation and malts with a cherry finish.

Sam Adams Cherry Wheat used to be one of my go-to beers before I truly became acquainted with craft beers. I figured it was time to revisit one of my old favorites, to see how it’s held up in my mind over time.
Pours a pale honey color with a thin white head that seems to be sticking around pretty well. Aroma is cherry sweet tarts, cereal, and some light malts. Flavor is tart cherry, bread, and the slightest hint of hops that you really have to look for. Nothing really special but it is very refreshing. I don’t get the medicinal cherry flavor that most reviews complain on. If anything it is more a sour/tart flavor. The beer is very carbonated and has a medium body. Overall, this beer is very enjoyable. It’s definitely not the best fruit beer I’ve ever had but it’s refreshing and hits the spot after a long day at work.

12oz bottle picked up at the state store
Clear golden with a medium sized white head and good lacing. Aroma of cherry soda/syrup and wheat. Flavors of cherries, plastic, straw with some bitter herbal in the finish
OK, not my thing though

Very medicinal tasting. The cherry flavor dominates and tastes synthetic. Perhaps fine to try a sip of someone else’s bottle, but you punish yourself by finishing this bottle.
