Ahhh, Sam Adams Cherry Wheat...
For a dude who loves cherries, this is the stuff....practically a dessert in itself!
The strong cherry aroma really grooves with the olfactories...and the non-sweet-yet-very-cherry taste lingers in a very good way...I could sometimes feel myself taste it the next day at work - more of a strong, good memory but still...
One thing - this stuff is only good fresh...I’ve had some Cherry Wheat that had been sitting around for many months, and had gotten really bad...same with all Sam Adams beers I’ve tried - only really good when relatively fresh - they don’t age too well at all!

A nice golden color with a one finger head. Aroma is totally cherry with a hint of almonds. Taste is cherry and a some wheat. A good beer but after two is too much.

Bottle). Sampled at Marks house. I like the concept and style but the cherry flavor seemed artificial. Worthy of a second sample come next summer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer is quite unique. It has the aroma of cherry vanilla but is not over powering. It has been described as tasting like cough syrup but this is not the case. It has a doughy-ness and cereal taste that I would expected in a wheat beer but the use of cherries really makes it unique and one of my favorite beers. Its not too light not too heavy. I really would consider this a dessert beer if there is such a thing, but it would work just as well to have with a burger or just drink by its self.

not a huge fan of the foofy (ie-fruit) beers, but this one works well enough. Nice balance between the crispness of the wheat, malt and the tartness of the cherries. not bad."

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. Amber pour with a nice creamy head that fades slowly. Aroma is just straight up cherry extract. Tastes like cherry extract as well with a light grainy base beer. Very sweet. Not smooth. Hate this beer. Why did someone have to leave this at my house and make me rate it?

Bottle at the USAID Bureau for Africa holiday party. The food was great, the company was excellent, but the beer was lacking. This one was a cheap lager with cherry juice added. Full stop.

I certainly see people who like cherry pie and wheat beers would enjoy this; however, for me it’s a little one dimensional. Aroma is sweet cherry (like canned cherry pie filling). The taste is sweet cherry and faintly wheat with very little beer character. The palate is sweet and lingering. If it were drier or perhaps more depth in the beer qualities--it might be really exceptional. Overall, it’s a fruit beer, so what do you expect?

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle - Sweet maraschino cherries and some light wheat notes. Cloudy orange gold with a rich white head. Tastes as sweet as it smells with some wheat notes in the back. This is just too sweet for my tastes.
