Dirty amber color with a thick white that dissipates quickly. Aroma of cherry juice and light wheat. Very sweet at first but finishes real sharp. Tart cherries take over.

Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Bottled April 2013. Poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint. Appearance: Darker than I was expecting... looks like a dark cherry, appropriately enough. Sand colored doesnít last long, and thereís really no lacing. Bleh. Has a nice color, but thatís about it. Smell: Quite a bit of cherry, but thereís actually a malt aroma... smells more like a beer than Sam Adams Cherry Wheat, thatís for sure. Not much to it. It has a pleasant aroma, though. Taste/feel: Eehk.. drink this one cold -- thatís all Iíll say. As this warmed up, I got this really odd bitterness that I canít quite explain. Itís not a hop bitterness, but almost like a bitterness youíd get from sucking on a tree root or something. Itís bizarre, and itís there all over the tongue, and lingers. When this beer is colder, thatís not much of a problem. Traverse City Cherry *Wheat* also had me wondering where the wheat was until the aftertaste, as well. The feel is light and pretty thing -- definitely an "after a long, hot day" sort of beer, for me. Not a very good beer. I can say that it doesnít have a medicinal sort of FLAVOR that can sometimes be a problem in a lot of cherry beers, but that weird bitterness is a killer, and ruining the beer for me. For what itís worth, itíd be average-at-best even if that bitterness was out of the equation. Canít recommend this one.

Bottle. Dark brownish burgundy color. Natural cherry flavor, nothing artificial here. Aroma also has a natural cherry aroma. This is better then I originally thought.

strongpieman (1459) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - JUL 9, 2013
Bottle. Reddish amber color, clear, light head. Tart and a little sour, medium light body. Pretty much as expected for taste. Fine, but not a preference.

alobar (2715) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 23, 2013
Pours a copper color with a slight aroma of wheat and cherry. Cherry flavor upfront and very brief with some wheat. Pretty average.

12 ounce bottle pours a copper red rust color with aromas of subtle cherries and light wheat. Flavors are light cherreies, some wheat and a light tart aftertaste. A nice beer to enjoy in the heat and better than the sam addams cherry wheat.

Initial whiff of cherries, then the normal wheat beer smell. Pours a darker brown than expected. Has a weak cherry taste mixed with an average wheat beer. The end has a bit of tartness. The thing is...it tastes overall a bit boring, but doesn?t seem to sit well with me. I doubt I would want more than one in one sitting.
