3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted from a 12oz. bottle. It poured a clear golden amber with good effervescence and a thin white head. A pungent sweet cherry aroma and a sweet fruity taste. This beer is kind of what coolers are to wine. It’s drinkable, but not quite a beer to me.

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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured hazy, in reddish golden color, nice foamy white head. Aroma is strong cherry and grain. Taste is also of cherries (feels a bit artificial) quite sweet and a bit sticky. Not my favorite from Samuel Adams, but nevertheless drinkable and interesting.

4.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
My favorite Sam Adams beer, I like most of them!
This a great beer, taste of cherry is very subtle, this is not a fruit flavored beer, the taste of cherry is just slight.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle at home. Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow. Aroma I start cherries. Flavor is cherry cough syrup. Only not as good. Cough syrup at least helps with a cough. Very bitter. Cherries taste artificial. Yuck. Didn't like this at all.
