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.

yespr (47429) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUN 26, 2007
12 oz bottle. Pours reddish orange with a light reddish coloured off-white head. Aroma is sticky sweet cherries and almonds. Flavour is rather dry cherries. Very soft mouthfeel, malty/wheaty texture. Dry and slight artificial finish. This beer has some ups and downs, it both smells good and bad and tastes good and bad.

Ungstrup (38382) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 16, 2005
[At Stockholm Beer Festival 2005] A hazy orange beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with notes of artificial cherries, and so is the flavor, while the body is thin. Now this is awful - it ought to ruin a brand....

oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 6, 2007
Bottled. Hazy orange colour, medikumsized white head. Aroma is cherry and marzipan. Flavour is marzipan, but is quite weak and watery. Not very exciting...

Travlr (26065) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 22, 2014
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.

Papsoe (25056) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2005
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Another completely disrespectful American brew - a Cherry Wheat, that’s pretty damned unique! Hazy orangey colour with a slight reddish tint, pretty big head. The Michigan cherries are added twice in the process, but as berries do not have that strong an aroma the brewery has added flavouring giving this beer quite an extreme - and artificial cherry aroma. Quite dry in spite of added honey. Not completely an enticing experience.

chriso (21656) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2005
Bottle, at GBBF, August 2005. Sort of golden colour. The aroma is full-on marzipan. Fortunately I quite like marzipan, but I’m not sure how appropriate it is in a beer. But it all goes wrong in the flavour. Very sweet. Cherry drop boiled sweets, with a sort of cream soda vanilla type vibe. Couldn’t help feeling like I was drinking alcopop. Are these real cherries in here? If so, it a major achievement to get them to taste to artificial and synthetic. Not too impressed.

Cherry, aroma, cherry flavor. Artifical and not much of a beer at all.......
