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.

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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Rated on 7-25-2015 at 800 Degrees Three Fires, Fort Wayne, IN. This draft beer is presented with a small ivory head that is mostly lasting, amber transparent body, very little carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma presents tart cherry and wheat. The flavor is tart cherry and sweet. The mouthfeel is smooth and this is a light bodied fruit beer. There is very little going on with this beer as it lacks aroma and very little flavor. It is an easily forgettable beer.

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.

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.

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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
From a 12 oz bottle.
Looks nice with a deep Amber body topped by a good head, but the aroma and flavor disappoint. Some cherry is evident but it’s subtle and accompanied by more bitterness than tartness.
Medium body and near medium carbonation.
