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 stuff is why some beer geeks are turned off by fruit beers. Sickly sweet aroma, and a cloying aftertaste that makes you go Gaack. The wheat base seems too weak to carry the cherry syrup or whatever they use to make it.

Pours hazy copper with large off-white head. Cherry syrup aroma dominates any other aromatics. Reminiscent of cherry cough syrup, cherry coke, or the cherry syrup used in milkshakes. Smooth almost creamy mouthfeel. Surprisingly mild flavor in all respects: tinge of cherry syrup, mild clean malt, and lingering lightly sweet cherryish finish.

The first one you say ... nice hint of cherry. It gets old fast.

Cherry bubblegum melted in a beer. WHA?

Interesting brew here if youre just looking for something different. Tastes exactly like you think it would - cherry cherry cherry. The one thing I didnt like about this brew was I noticed on the label that cherry flavoring is added AFTER the brew process although it is brewed with cherries - still, that defeats the purpose of a good brew

A golden amber body is topped with little head, however a fair amount of lace is left behind. The aroma is full of sweet mirachino cherries with a slight hoppiness underneath. the flavor starts out similar to cherry soda, however the malt and hops soon show through.

My girlfriend loves this. The cherries are very pronounced. I remember hearing about this in my pre-beer days and thought it sounded interesting. If its one of those terribly uninspired package stores with minimal selection, Ill most likely opt for this. As much as people knock Sam Adams, they continue to make good products. My only problem with this is that it fills you up really fast, so its not great with dinner or when youd like to toss a couple back with the pals.

On a hot day, the overpowering cherry hits the spot. Very dry with a crisp finish. Its not as bad as youd think.

The wife really likes the stuff, but I think that the cherry flavor overpowers the beer.
