Samuel Adams Cherry Wheat is one of the first fruitier beers I caught myself liking, and, if you can believe, is still only the second offering I've had by their brewery. At any rate, after a blind pickup in a make-your-own-six-pack, I kinda had to see what their recipe was in terms of making a more unconventional fruity beer, or one that didn't ostensibly rely on grapefruit and citrus undertones.
Appearance: Hazy and gold, with faint orangeness lurking all around. Was surprised at this, for I was expecting something like a copper-red or even a reddish orange. Also leaves an attractive lacing on the top of my class. No arguments here, though.
Smell: Smells almost like Boston Lager, if my senses don't fade me, with whiffs of cherry thrown in for good measure. Liking it so far.
Taste: A fair amount of wheatiness balanced beautifully by a natural cherry flavor, rather than the kind of overpowering, sugary flavor you get when drinking something like a Bud Light Lime Margarita or a headache-inducing alcopop. Blends perfectly to give a taste unlike anything I've had before.
Mouthfeel: Pleasantly wheaty, with the right amount of cherry flavoring - only wish this beer didn't bear a slightly bitter aftertaste, for it vaguely disrupts the palette of otherwise comfortable flavors.
Overall: I have a few other miscellaneous Samuel Adams offerings lurking in my fridge that I can't wait to try, but I really enjoy this beer all around, from its unexpectedly different appearance to the taste it leaves in your mouth after you've finished it.
