Strong fruity pebbles followed by a slight wheat follow through. Cherry lingers after for a while. A great beer

Taste Rating in Words: It's being an excited child eating cereal in the morning.

Worst cherry beer I've had. Tastes like vicks cherry cough drops. Buy something made in Bruxelles like a Kriek aux cerises.

I received a six-pack as a gift. I drank one to be polite. I have been drinking craft beer for over two decades and this is the first beer I have poured down the drain. It's disgustingly sweet and the base wheat beer is substandard as well.

Let me just say I cannot stand this beer and I have no idea why I tried it again. It tastes like cherry flavored cough syrup and is incredibly sweet. I would rather drink Robitussin.

Poured into a nonic pint glass.
The appearance was a stiff murky orange color with a wisp of foamy to fizzy white head. It tapered off pretty quick to leave barely any lace.
The aroma had some super sweet cherry juice/almost syrup to play with some sweet wheat/graininess. Light citrus sweetness at the end.
The flavor was mostly sweet through the entire drink. Wheat seemed barely there. Slight syrupy cherry sweet aftertaste.
The mouthfeel was between light and medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt appropriate. Finish was a touch syrupy, but somehow I accepted it and didn't think it was cloying.
Overall, for Sam Adams' beers, I tend to like their "higher end"/more expensive ones so drinking this is not necessarily one I "need" to come back to. I don't want to overly knock this one, but in reality, this isn't one I seek all of the time.
