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.

I have had it with the iceman and it is shitty. This brewery has taken an American legend and made a mockery of him. Its alright for your begining beer drinker but it is terrible overall.

Usually a fan of the flavored beers, but not so much a fan of this one. If the cherry taste werent so strong I might enjoy it. Its a tad tart as well.

Shockingly, this fruit beer is very pleasant. Its not really all that wheaty but is light and spicy on the palate with a decent but not large head. Problem is, the bottle says they added cherry flavor, which sounds like syrup to me. Hell, it tastes good, and thats the bottom line.

oddlly enough, one of the tastier fruity beers that ive tried - the cherry is a nice change from raspberry. Drink no more than one at a time....

Very easy to drink with the right amount of cherry. It gets a little over powering after 3 bottles. Fantastic head retention (due from the wheat) and great carbonation and mouth feel. Nothing really wrong with it. My first cherry...ah ah i guess you could say i popped this cherry ah ah ah! how witty a pun is that! ok im stopping now...no i will not go to hell because you want me to. Good beer.

Smells like cherry ice cream before tasting. Tastes like cherry slushy. Has a hit of cherry cough drop, also. The aftertaste is alright, though. I dont think that I would drink more than one of these. I have been known to leave some in the bottle before, too, but since it is Sam, I have to be kind.

Icky. Might not be too bad if they just left it with the cherrys and didnt add the cherry syrup. Disgusting aroma, flavour isnt all that bad but isnt exactly good either. The only beer my grandmother likes.

I just cant believe that Sam Adams has the audacity to call this a beer. This is some vile shit. Ughhh. If you have any appreciation for wheat beers, lambics, or krieks dont try this. You might puke. And then,... Youll cry because, yes,... indeed someone actually calls this beer.
