boxofrane (2417) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 7, 2013
Bottle from Wegmans. Pours hazy orange with no head to speak of other than around the rim of the glass. The aroma does have some tart cherry present but very little else. The taste has a light cherry, more sweet than tart initially, and a decent maltiness. Reasonable but not up there with beers like the Founder’s Cherise.

Interesting... Points for trying something different but needs some work. The cherries lean sour and the tartness seems to compete with the wheat rather than complement it.

bottle. Pours dark red amber with a soapy off white head that leaves a spotty film and faint lacing. Aroma is bread malt and cherry. Taste is watery malt bread and slight watered cherry. Palate is thin and watered down.

A bit thin, light and smooth. Not too sweet, with some hints of fruit (cherry and citrus) plus a bit of grassiness and malt.

Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance-The beer is served a deep amber color with a hint of ruby red mixed within. There is a small white head that sits atop the brew upon serving, with it having a light level of retention and fading to leave a decent level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell- The aroma was somewhat what you would expect for a cherry wheat- cherry and wheat. Along with these aromas are some lighter smells of a caramel sweetness as well as a little bit of a grainy aroma. Taste- The taste begins with a rather cherry sweet and lighter wheat and bready flavor. As the taste advances the sweet cherry lessens a bit but is replaced by a little bit of a caramel sweetness. All the while a little bit of graininess and some light yeast comes to the tongue. With some flavors of a little bit of toasted bread coming to the tongue, one is left with a rather sweet, but not cloying, cherry wheat flavor to be left on the tongue. Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the average side as well. For the style the combination of moderate body and carbonation are perfect as they really nicely complement both the fruit cherry and wheat flavors of the brew. Overall, rather well done. Overall - A decent cherry wheat, but nothing overly exceptional. A good try, but overall, a Sam Adams cherry wheat is much better, at a comparable cost, and it just as easy to find.. so I would say go it instead.

tmongoose (1676) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 24, 2015
Draft, strange beer. Pours what I am assuming is a medium red color with thick white head. The nose is sour cherry with mild malt base. The flavor is tart cherry with mild wheat. Knowing these cherries I would have done this the other way around. A more pronounce wheat with the underlying cherry tartness. Otherwise this is just an average or below cherry wheat.

Bottle. Golden with a light head. Syrupy cherry and malt. Dry, flat, and stale.
