This is a very unusual beer. Samuel Adams Cherry Wheat has a thick, fluffy, off-white head and a hazy, golden appearance, with little descending brown flecks and lots of streaming bubbles. The beer really clouded up when I swished it and poured the remaining third. Aroma is cherries and bread, and the taste is likewise cherries, bread, and a touch of hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and soft, and Samuel Adams Cherry Wheat finishes easy drinking and fairly refreshing. Overall, this is a good beer.

12-oz bottle into weizen glass

A - 2 fingers of white head atop a slightly-cloudy golden/yellow body; moderate carbonation bubbles

S - fresh cherry smell, while very pleasant, dominates the nose; wheat in the background; hint of vanilla

T - sweet cherries up front; mostly decent cherry flavor, but with an unpleasant hint of syrupy cherry candy; dry, wheaty finish

M - medium-bodied with high carbonation, quite refreshing

O - nothing unexpected for the style
