strongpieman (1390) - 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.

tectactoe (1179) - Michigan, USA - OCT 5, 2013
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, itís 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...

flatmatt (1025) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAY 18, 2012
12 oz bottle. Pours clear light amber with a white head. Cherry aroma, somewhat sugary. Light wheat and cherry flavors. as it warms, a tiny bit of banana pokes its heads in occasionally. Flavorís decent, but itís quite light.

tnkw01 (960) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 3, 2013
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.

ICEatALAMO (873) - Troy, Michigan, USA - JUN 24, 2012
bottle. Pours a red ale type color. The aroma is is mostly that of a wheat beer with barely a hint of cherry. the taste is pretty bland. again, not much cherry. I had higher hopes for this beer than this.

jmm635 (830) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 12, 2013
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.

Aggie80 (785) - Michigan, USA - SEP 22, 2012
Poured from a bottle in a clear slightly reddish amber with an average white head with some good lacing. Very minor cherry undertones and fairly wheat aroma. Slight sweetness of a wheat beer.

KajII (774) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JAN 15, 2014
12oz Bottle. The pour was a cloudy medium brown with a strong reddish hue and a huge (3-4 finger) sudsy head that reduced slowly, down to a thick cap which lasted throughout and had fair sticky lacing.

The aroma was kind of mild with a light hay- like malt and a funky dusty yeast with hints of cherry, barley and wheat.

The taste was lightly malty and a tad sweet with a strong note of cherries from the get go, with a bit of wheat slipping in along with a mild bitterness and a lightly tart ending. The flavor lasted and average duration proceeding the swallow, with a lightly bitter fruity taste left behind.

Mouthfeel was light in body with a thin dry texture and an almost fizzy carbonation.

Overall this is a decent Wheat Ale with a strong presence of fruit and a touch of wheat. Be careful upon opening this one though, it fizzed up out of the bottle and onto the counter. I was quick though and only lost a very little... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews

wmubronco1992 (589) - Coldwater, Michigan, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear red/pink amber. Light tan long lasting head. Cherry aroma. Some sour cherry flavor along with the typical wheat feel. Some lacing. Sour finish. Definitely not my favorite from Atwater. May have been a little kind in my rating, because honestly I didnít like it. Maybe a bad bottle. Will try again some day, but for now this one was just ok.

bookman10 (588) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - SEP 14, 2012
Pours a reddish-orange color. Cherry aroma and light cherry flavor that helps to distinguish this a bit from a straight wheat beer. Not as sour or full of esters as the typical wheat. The cherry is quite muted, but pleasant in its effect.
