Samuel Adams Mountain Berry Beer

I think I've made it pretty clear on this blog over the years that I'm a huge fan of the Samuel Adams brand. So, whenever something new hits the shelves, I'm usually keen on trying it. For some reason, I hadn't been able to get around to Samuel Adams Mountain Berry until now. Maybe it's because I'm not a huge fan of fruit "gimmick
" beers. I've always been a fan of Samuel Adams Cheery Wheat, so I figured that this one would be fairly close riff on Cherry Wheat. And, guess what? It is. Samuel Adams Mountain Berry tastes like Cherry Wheat but with raspberries and blackberries. That being said, it's a pretty decent beer. It's light and crisp and the fruit doesn't overwhelm the taste like a lot of over fruity beers tend to do. There's a little bit of a sour taste in there as well, but it's just a hint. There isn't much of a head on the beer after a pour and it's not very hoppy which is something that Samuel Adams beers tend to overdo with some of their creations. Overall, it's a very drinkable beer, one that would probably go down best as a light Summer offering in the place of some kind of Summer Shandy. Unlike Samuel Adams Summer Ale, it's not a beer that I would want to have a lot of, though. So, Samuel Adams Mountain Berry is, at the very least, worth a try.
