I'm actually rather fond of the Sam Adams Cherry Wheat myself. If you ever get a hold of the Tastefully Simple beer bread mix, use this beer. Phenominal bread, especially toasted.

This kit does use cherry extract added at bottling. I hope it will have just a hint of cherry, I am very happy with the unexpected fermentation in the secondary. The beer has a very nice color and very fine bubbles rising to the top. I normally keep my brews in secondary 2 weeks that will be in 6 more days. I havn't taken a gravity reading since racking to secondary, I don't do more than 2 or 3 readings because I hate wasting that much beer. I'll report my progress. Thanks all for your interest.

Personally, I found the cherry flavor in the Sam Adams beer to be too overpowering. Now, the wheat is subdued itself, but it was still, in my opinion, far too dominant.

The flavor will be subtle. I had a hard time "finding" it in the overall flavor, but, like I said, other people were able to taste the cherry. Good luck. Keep us up on your results.
