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 #53: Sam Adams Summer Ale (2012)

Style: American pale wheat ale

Menu description: Hint of lemon, light hops, mix of spices.

ABV: 5.3%

Tasting notes: There’s a lemony flavor which I like. The lemon citrus flavor is pretty strong and really evokes a summer feel. Strong carbonation and a light body help with that impression. Not much in the way of spice, and the hops are more smelled than tasted, but it’s actually decent. Not my first choice, but I wouldn’t turn it down if offered. This is one of those beers where the more I drink it, the more I like it.

Rating: 3/5
