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.

Bottle. Poured amber-orange in color with a small fizzy head that dissapated rapidly with nice lacing. The aroma was overwhelming with cherries and a hint of sweet yeast. It tasted sweet with a very strong cherry flavor. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture. Overall nothing special, nice on a hot summer day.

Zesty cherry aroma. Golden mild body with a reddish hue and faint haze. White foamed head is strong at first at about two finger height which laces the glass nicely as it reluctantly fades. Mild bitterness. Cherry is noticeable in the taste but not overpowering. Subdued malt character to balance it out. Mild sweetness and light tart finish.

Tap@Sam Adams Toasts Miami bar, Miami Airport. Amber orangey beer with a light head. The aroma is cherry with sharpness, and the flavour is dry, mildly bitter with plenty of cherry sweetness and a little sourness. Overall a nice variety wheat beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I really enjoyed this beer. I’m a huge fan of cherry and i’m a huge fan of beer. I typically don’t care for fruity beer but this isn’t too strong.

DavoleBomb (1487) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Poured into a weizen glass. 3.25 A: Lightly hazed medium orange color. One and a half fingers of frothy white head. Retention is a bit below average and a short ring of lacing is left. 2.75 S: Smells of grenadine. That’s about it. Lots and lots of grenadine. It has a pretty intense nose, but it doesn’t smell a lot like beer. 2.75 T: Tastes like it smells, like they took a perfectly fine wheat beer and went nuts with the grenadine behind the bar. Hints of peppery spiciness as well. 3.75 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Light creaminess. Good here. 3.0 D: I purchased a bunch of SA beers just for the sake of reviewing them here. I wasn’t expecting much, but I always wasn’t expecting that BBC turned into an adult fruit drink company.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler on 01.02.14. A: See through orange. No head with an aggressive pour. S: Cherry, spices. T: Cherry, wheat, spices, honey. M: Good carbonation. O: This is a good beer. Cherry complements a wit very well, unlike blackberry. It’s not overly sweet, either.

Very speaking cherry smell but slightly lacking in the cherry flavour. Very light fizz which lingers a little. (K.)

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
