Bottle of 355 ml, bought in a megastore in Mexico.
Pours a honey-like colour, semi-transparent, with a two finger soapy head that after a while becomes half a finger. That half finger has a very good retention. Quite an activity in the glass with lots of bubbles.
Sweet aroma of cherries, if there is something else there I can't find it, the cherries aroma is overwhelming.
Great taste, I don't think I have tried something similar before. Sweet and spicy. Medium thickness on the body and light carbonation.

Poured on-tap at the Stadium Tavern in Fullerton, CA. Reviewed from notes.

A- Typical Sam Adams fluffy head. Finger and a half thick. Orange color. Long retention.

S- Smells like cherry cough medicine. Very strong. Oofah.

T- I think someone just poured cough medicine into my beer. Disgusting.

M- Medium bodied and sticky.

O- Avoid unless you like adult koolaid.

A - Pours a hazy gold with a dense and creamy white head that settles to a thick cap, leaving soapy lacing clinging to the glass.
S - Straight-up Black Cherry Soda with a touch of crisp wheat. Luckily, I love Black Cherry Soda, but not particularly in my beer.
T - More cherry flavors with some light biscuit malt and a mild bitterness in the finish.
M - Light and crisp, with a medium0thin body and good carbonation.
O - While not my favorite Sam Adams offering, it is an easy-drinking Wheat Beer that could be a nice gateway.
