The cherry aroma is very powerful in this brew - and the taste is a bit medicinal -- I had my 11 year old daughter take a whiff and she thought it smelled like her cough medicine - and I would have to agree. That said it is not a bad fruit beer. A pleasant amber color.
As it was too sweet overall for my tastes - I layered Murhpys Stout over the Sams Cherry Wheat and I must say it was a very nice mix and a suitable desert beverage.
I have not read much about mixing beers on this site - but in this instance I think it was a good solution and helped me to enjoy a few pints on a Sunday afternoon.
