Beer Review #66: Sam Adams Cherry Wheat

Style: Fruit and field beer

Website description: Crisp and fruity with a hint of honey, this ale brewed with Michigan cherries is light on the palate, yet full of surprising depth and flavor. The cherries contribute a tart fruit character, while a touch of honey adds a slight sweetness.

ABV: 5.3%

Tasting notes: This has a strong aroma of cherries. The flavor is predominantly cherry as well. It’s almost like cherry candy or a cough drop. There’s some mild hop flavor as well, but not very much.

Rating: 3.5/5

Beer Review #11: Spoetzl Shiner Holiday Cheer

Menu description: Nice sweet malts, strong flavors of cherries and peaches.

ABV: 5.4%

My thoughts: Don’t smell this beer. Seriously, you won’t enjoy it. It’s very odd. Fortunately, the taste more than makes up for it. If you like cherries, you’re gonna like this. It’s a lightly sweet flavor with just a tiny bit of bitter at the end. This is the kind of beer I’d totally serve at a holiday party.

Also, I made it snow in the picture of the beer.

Number of times I’ve had it: 1

Beer Review #10: Troegs Mad Elf

I finished my night off with this fine beer. I first had it last November and it really caught my attention. Earlier in the year I had tried Sam Adams Double Chocolate Cherry, a beer that I can only describe as transcendent. Since then, I was looking for a beer with a similar cherry or chocolate flavor. This beer really nailed the cherry flavor.

Menu description: Cherry notes, brown sugar, mix of sweet spices.

ABV: 11%

My thoughts: A Belgian strong dark ale. This is quite good! It’s got a strong cherry taste and the spices really add to the character of the beer. It’s got an aroma reminiscent of bananas, oddly enough. It doesn’t taste like it’s a strong beer, which can be dangerous. Simply delightful!

Number of times I’ve had it: I’ve tried this on 3 separate occasions, most recently tonight, and it’s fantastic each time. This definitely gets a recommendation from me.

Rating: 4/5
