COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Samuel Adams Cherry Wheat® follows the centuries old American tradition of brewing beer with native ingredients, in this case Michigan cherries as well as a touch of honey. The sweet fruitiness of the cherries is balanced against the crisp, cereal note from the malted wheat and the subtle citrus flavor from the Noble hops. The end result is a sweet, refreshing beer that is light on the palate but long on complexity. Introduced in 1995 as a summer seasonal brew, Samuel Adams Cherry Wheat® developed a large enough following to be introduced as a year round style. Its distinct cherry character has made it one of the most unique and well liked styles of Samuel Adams® beer ever. Cherries are added at two different points during the brewing process. Once during the mash and again during finishing.

This is personally one of my all time favorite classics from Samuel Adams. The taste has a nice malty flavor with a hint of cherries. The head on this beer stays throughout the whole drink. Very good.

This is probably the best beer i have tasted. It smells like cherries and gives a nice cherry aftertaste. I could drink this all day and night. I haven't tried many other Sam Adams beers but this has grabbed my interest. I just had 1 at 340 in the morning and i have a test tommorow but it was worth it.

I love this beer. For a beer to just sip on whil you’r ehanging out or drink while you’re playing a game, this is awesome. With out a doubt it’s a good beer.

The Cherry Wheat is tied with the Sam Adams White Ale for my favorite beer. It’s smooth and not very filling and has the right amount of cherry flavor.

This is one of my all time favorites. I recently picked up a case after a one year hiatus due to distribution issues. The aroma is rich with cherries and the flavor is a satisfying offset of fruit and wheat. Popping open one last night was like reuniting with an old friend.
