A fruity brew, indeed, Samuel Adams Cherry Wheat pours to a golden color with an aroma that is decidedly cherry- like in nature, similar to a cherry soda. The foam level is okay at first, but doesn’t last very long.

Tasting this beer reveals its cherry nature even further. It is cherry all the way, but the good thing is that the beer doesn’t take the flavor to extreme levels of sweetness. There is a certain degree of tartness and the wheat base is evident, with some bread/dough notes and an overall flavor that reminds me of a bowl of wheat flakes with added fruit. It manages to pull off a certain dryness in the finish and the aftertaste of cherries remains with you for a while after the last sip.

Samuel Adams Cherry Wheat is a refreshing brew and it makes a good choice for a hot summer day. I know that some will be turned off by the fruitiness and while I generally do not go for fruit beers myself, I find the medium body and tartness sufficient to enjoy this beer and recommend it for your next encounter with hot weather.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

12 oz bottle poured into a lager glass.

A - Cloudy pale amber. Small head stays a long time. Spotty lacing.

S- Stunning blend of cherry and malt. Should be marketed as an air freshener!

T - Malty, cherry, honey goodness. Bitter finish gets more mellow after 5-7 minutes. Tasty.

M - Medium

O - Very good beer. I wish it had a touch more cherry flavor; but to each his own. Cheers!
