TGBC 2013 – Samuel Adams Cherry Wheat

So sorry the lack of posts lately – the nasty flu bugs bit us hard this winter and both my husband and I were down for the count for a few weeks. Add into that, a death in the family and it’s just been a bit chaotic.

Have no fear, though! I am still sticking with The Great Beer Challenge and have another one to post! (Ok, ok, pick yourselves up – I know you’re in disbelief that I’ve stuck with it this long!)

Today, I’ll be sharing the Samuel Adams Cherry Wheat. Yes, it’s another fruity brew, and yes I liked it.

The site says: “Crisp and fruity with a hint of honey, this cherry brewed ale has a surprising depth while being light on the palate.”

It was very light, and very refreshing. The flavor of the cherries was definitely there, but it wasn’t overwhelmingly sweet or fruity…yet it wasn’t overwhelmingly beer-tasting either. If that makes sense. It wasn’t as fruity as the Razz-Wheat from Oaken Barrel, but that’s not a bad thing. If you’re looking for something with a light flavor without compromising the beer taste, this would be a good pick.

Disclaimer: I’m reviewing these of my own will, and all beverages were purchased with my own money. I was not contacted by any of the companies mentioned, nor am I being compensated in any way for these reviews.
