Samuel Adams Cherry Wheat Pours out with a small white head. You can tell it's a non filtered brew. The Color is a dark amber. Smell right off the bat is Cherry. There is really nothing else to it I can't smell anything else. The taste is also cherry nothing more than that. Not much else to say but CHERRY. If you like cherry you may like this brew. This brew is not for me. It looks good but the taste is too much.

Blech. Fruit beers just aren't for me. However, my husband loves the crap out of this beer. To me, this tastes like a mix of bad cherry candy or cough medicine, mixed with a decent wheat beer. If the cherry flavor was a bit more subtle, I think I'd like it a lot better.

Poured from a bottle with a clear golden color and a nice white foam head. Aroma is distinctly cherry. The mix of wheat and cherry makes for an enjoyable flavor. I’ve had some beers where the fruity flavor ruins it, but there’s just the right balance of cherry and wheat beer in this brew.
