If you take the artificial cherry taste from cherry coke and put it into a beer this is what you get.

Tastes a bit like cherry cough syrup added to beer, better off with a kriek or lambic.

This is probably my favorite beer of the Samuel Adams line. Excellent flavor, and nice cloudy appearance as a wheat beer should have. Not available everywhere I've been, though, which is unfortunate.

Maybe the worst beer I've ever had. Love Sam Adams but this is cherry robitussun with some malts & hops.

Cherries and beer don't really mix for me.
