look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

12oz bottle from Sams mixed 12

A- Translucent Yellowish Gold with a very slight reddish hue. Slightly below average carbonation with almost no head.

S- Very very sweet cherry smell. Almost smells like cherry cough syrup.

T- Not nearly as sweet as the smell. Sweet cherry taste mixed with a wheat taste that kind of balances it out a little bit, a little bit watery.

M- Light bodied, feels a little bit more carbonated then it looks, alcohol well hidden, decently sessionable.

O- A lot of people I know like the Cherry Wheat, however I find it to be a huge disappointment. The smell is way too artificial and there isn't much taste in my opinion. I'm not usually a huge fan of fruit beers, however there are a few good ones out there. The Cherry Wheat unfortunately is not one of those. It is not terrible, it is decently sessionable, but definitely not a beer I would drink a lot.
