look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a tasting glass from the tap.

The color is light cloudy, amber with a white head.

The smell is strong cherry, and a hint of spice.

The taste is mostly cherry but it does also have a good wheat flavor as well as a little hops.

This last try at tasting this beer became quite a surprise. I was not expecting to really have a positive feeling about this beer.

This is a beer that is good for when you need something really light but still want to drink a beer. Not a bad beer for clearing the taste buds in between Imperial porters.

Pours out golden colored with a slight orange tint to it and a great head that leaves good lacing behind as well. Aroma is all cherries. The taste is much like the aroma, but not overpowering which is most people's fear with this type of beer. It is moderate in strength but sweet, making it undesirable after maybe 2 or 3. Not a bad beer at all, I always enjoy Sammy A Cherry Wheat once in a while.

12oz with the label notched best before Dec 05, poured into a pint.

Tall white head over light, clear copper and good carbonation. Wispy lace and good retention.

The nose is almost all cherries, with a suggestion of wheat underneath. Smells like real cherries, not some generic juice, I like that.

Tastes of cherries followed by dry hops, but the cherries are dominate throughout and leave an oily finish. Not balanced at all. If more wheat was able to come through, this would be a lot better.

The mouthfeel seems a bit oily and its more of a malted fruit concoction than a balanced beer. Therefore I would not want another.
