2.51/5 rDev -19.8%
My girlfriend will actually drink this, so I decided to have one to see if it was any better than I remembered it being. 12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass...
A - Pours a hazy, yellow-amber color. A full, off-white head forms about 2 fingers thick. Retains nicely.
S - The aroma starts with an artificial cherry scent. it mixes with a grainy, wheat aroma. Not much to it here.
T - The taste is much of the same with the grainy malts making more of an impact here than on the aroma. The "cherry" comes across as quite artificial and syrupy.
M - Medium bodied beer with a creamy mouthfeel. A moderate carbonation here.
O - Just as I remembered it. I just can't get into beers whose primary component comes across as artificial. I could see this being refreshing during the summer at a party where everyone drinks macros, but other than that, I won't be coming back to it.

3.95/5 rDev +26.2%
A - Light amber color, finger head that fades quickly, lacing on the glass.
S - Strong cherry smell, a little chaff
T - Tastes primarily of cherry pie, smoky
F - Typical macro carbonation to mask undesirable tastes, wish there was less
O - Great beer, not sure why it's rated so low. I had low expectations for this one but I've been pleasantly surprised. Favorite Sam Adams by far, will buy again.
