Sam Adams Cherry Wheat is Probably a Beer you are either going to Really Like,or Pour down the sink because you Can't drink it,There is not much of a Middle Ground with this beer,if you REALLY like Cherries,and enjoy Fruit Beers & Ales,then chances are you will like this Beer a LOT,I Happen to think it is a wonderful Beer,a Very well Crafted Beer to be sure~ this Beer looks quite nice when poured,a somewhat semi Amber/Golden Hue,with a very Lively Carbonation & Fluffy head,and quite a good amount of Lacing for a wheat Beer,you just can tell that the Brewer took their time with this beer~as good as it looks,it is the Smell,that Cherry Aroma that really Floored me the first time I had this Beer,as soon as I popped the top on a 12oz Bottle of Cherry Wheat,that sweet Cherry aroma just filled the room,very pronounced 4 sure!~Taste,While this Beer Certainly has a Sweet Edge up front mixed with a bit of Grainy,Malty flavor,it has a very Dry,Tart Cherry Finish, that to me is Very Nice Indeed!
As Much as I like this Beer,I really can not see drinking it all Night,and though I do not think it is Overly sweet for the type of Beer it is,after 2 or 3 I can see the sweetness Catching up & turning a Bit Syrup like,Not what I would call a Session Beer @ all,but a GR8 Fruit Beer overall~
As far as Food Pairings,perhaps would be Nice with some block cheese and Crackers,Grapes,Cherries [Of Course],Other Crisp Fruits Like Apples or Pears,Goes very Nice with a Slice of Cherry Pie,Cheers and Peace2All:)

Cherry Wheat is in my top ten of Samuel Adams brews. Has good flavor, not over-powering. Great wheat flavor. Not too filling. Has decent cherry aroma, with slight wheat aroma. Too low of alcohol content for me. When I have a beer, I like some what of a kick. Cherry Wheat did not have much of one. To sum it up, I'll probably drink it again if offered, but not too often or any time in the near future.
