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.

NOw I am a fan a fruit beers. However this one was really bad. I think the guy who said cherry juice poured into budweiser about sums it up. Never again.

12 oz. bottle. AROMA: Strong cherry scent with some wheat undertones. APPEARANCE: Slightly hazy with an orangeish-gold color. The head is crisp-white, tall, and has a tight froth that dissipates slowly. TASTE: Medium sweet with just the right balance of cherry flavor (not too much, not too little). PALATE: Medium bodied with a smooth, creamy texture. Average carbonation and a slow finish with more of that cherry sweetness. OVERALL: The cherry flavor is not over-powering, nor is it overly sweet. Which makes for a very refreshing beer on a hot day!

From old tasting notes. Bright yellow gold color. Thick creamy white head. Sweet cherry aroma. Interesting cherry malt flavor with hints of almond and coconut. Dryish hop finish.

Hazy orange, long lasting foam. Smells of cough drops, cherry cough drops and wheat. Same with the taste and I like. Colour me strange.

Smells and tastes like cherry flavored cough syrup. WTF is up with that. Glad i didn’t actually have to pay for this crap. Still better than bud light though.

Pours a slightly hazy light orange with a finger of fluffy white head. Aroma is heavy maraschino cherry and almond extract. Flavor is sweet and nutty with more cherry almond flavor lingering on the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy, golden straw color with a short lived head of white foam. Cherries all the way on the aroma. Light cereal grain and cherries on the palate. A moderate harsh burn at the finish. A little syrupy but still friendly enough in the end.

basaywhat (281) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - NOV 28, 2016
12 oz bottle. Pours a golden color with a medium white head. Aroma is dominated by cherry. Flavor is predominantly fruity cherry, with some underlying citrus from the hops. Light bodied with a long cherry finish.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Sam Adams tulip glass. Hazy straw color and cherry aroma. First few sips were good but near the end it started to taste more like cherry cough medicine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I’ve had this many times prior but I guess I never rated so grabbed a supermarket since looking for tick in that weak place is difficult. Straw colored. Tastes of straw amd Cheryl an wheat, nose is fruitlet that flavor. Finishes a tad medicinal.

OnTheTrail (508) - Virginia, USA - AUG 27, 2016
Pours hazy dark yellow, medium white head. Aroma is overwhelming sweet cherries, barest hint of wheat and honey. Taste is wheat, honey, spicy hops, and cherry, not as sweet as might have been expected from the aroma. Mouthfeel is light to medium. Bether than I expected. Taste could come together better though. I may like this more than some do because of memories of childhood Dr Peppers.
