3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is wheat and a hint of cherries. The flavor is malts, cherries and a mildly tart finish. Kind of bland, could have been due to it being and old sample.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
At bocktown. Smells a little like mild fruity or perceivable cherry perfume. Big smooth head. A little sweet at the start and as the session continues it gets just a tad cloying. Very little co2. Has someof thoes typical fruit beer attributes. Slight medicinal finish.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz, bottled April 2013. Clear orange-copper with a lasting quarter inch of creamy head. Mild but pleasant nose of toffee, banana, and a touch of cherry. The taste really has lots of fresh, tart pie-making cherries. Also a touch of spicy banana, caramel and some woody hops. Medium body is soft with average carbonation and enough acidic tartness to provide a fair balance. Not a huge fan of this brewery or the fruit style, but this one’s pretty good.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
A nice try, but the cherry taste is a bit medicinal when accenting the grassy wheatiness of the base. Tried at the DC Drink the District Derby Days with Matt and Justin.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled in 4/2015. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy reddish copper color with a 2 finger dense and rocky light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of light sweet/tart cherry, wheat, cracker, toasted bread, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Okay aromas with solid balance of cherry, pale malt, and earthy hop notes; with very weak strength. Taste of light sweet/tart cherry, wheat, cracker, toasted bread, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal/spicy bitterness and fruit tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of cherry, wheat, cracker, toasted bread, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Good balance and solid robustness of cherry, pale malt, and earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/bitterness/tartness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly creamy/acidic mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.5%. Overall this is a decent fruited wheat beer style. All around good balance and solid robustness of cherry, pale malt, and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A fairly enjoyable offering.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
UPDATED: APR 8, 2014 Bottle: Hazy copper color, white head dissipates quickly as it leaves absolutely no lacing along the glass. Aroma barely has any cherry in it. Very, very light cherry, wheat, sweet malt, a finishing touch of bland floral hops. Aroma is so light, it’s hard to pick up on anything. Way too weak. Taste is slightly tart cherry up front, more like a juice with some medicinal and chalky notes. Soft, bland... full of wheat; back-end of wheat almost overpowers the cherry. Aftertaste is full of that weird chalky, "just chewed a vitamin" finish. Not the best...

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a copper color with a slight aroma of wheat and cherry. Cherry flavor upfront and very brief with some wheat. Pretty average.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear medium cherry amber with a frothy head cover and small bands of lace. Taste is malt up front that adds sour cherry in the palate, turning slightly bitter in the finish. I’m not sure all elements agree with each other in this brew...pretty solid going in, not so ggod in the lingering finish.
