2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz bottle. Pours reddish orange with a light reddish coloured off-white head. Aroma is sticky sweet cherries and almonds. Flavour is rather dry cherries. Very soft mouthfeel, malty/wheaty texture. Dry and slight artificial finish. This beer has some ups and downs, it both smells good and bad and tastes good and bad.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
[At Stockholm Beer Festival 2005] A hazy orange beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with notes of artificial cherries, and so is the flavor, while the body is thin. Now this is awful - it ought to ruin a brand....

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Another completely disrespectful American brew - a Cherry Wheat, that’s pretty damned unique! Hazy orangey colour with a slight reddish tint, pretty big head. The Michigan cherries are added twice in the process, but as berries do not have that strong an aroma the brewery has added flavouring giving this beer quite an extreme - and artificial cherry aroma. Quite dry in spite of added honey. Not completely an enticing experience.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottled. Hazy orange colour, medikumsized white head. Aroma is cherry and marzipan. Flavour is marzipan, but is quite weak and watery. Not very exciting...

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 2/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled (BB 09/2006)
Hazy orange color, small white head. Strong sweet aroma of cherry, like aroma of cherry chocolate candy. Watery, dry mouthfeel, notes of wheat, cherry and almond. A bit harsh aftertaste. Not really a good Samuel Adams brew.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Cherry, aroma, cherry flavor. Artifical and not much of a beer at all.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: The beer pours an amber color with a short lived off-white head to go with it.
S: Smells like cherries, big time cherries. It’s pretty much like a jar of maraschino cherries, but it’s enjoyable. The more I smell it, the better I like the cherry character that’s there. Not really much else going on in terms of the aroma.
T: The cherry flavor is nowhere near as prominent as the cherry aroma, but it is there. There is a surprising creaminess and an almost vanilla flavor. Sweet wheat and bread are actually noticeable on the palate.
M: Medium in body with a moderate level of carbonation that is nice and smooth.
D: I guess I wouldn’t be pounding down a 12 pack of this, but it’s not a bad beer to have once every so often.
