COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
TC is the cherry capital of the world and now Montmorency Cherries from this colorful town in Michigan’s “Up North” have made their way into a wheat beer for the ages, for a taste that’s totally cherry. Prost!

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

tectactoe (1492) - 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, 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...

strongpieman (1462) - 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.

Mittenator (1237) - Michigan, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Bottle. Golden with a light head. Syrupy cherry and malt. Dry, flat, and stale.

degbert (1071) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Bottle. Pours a reddish-tinged dark orange-amber with a medium, fine-grained, pillowy head. Nose is very mild cherry fruit with yeast and bready notes. Not at all sweet -- definite cherry notes, spoiled somewhat by a metallic canned overtone. It’s a weird mix of fresh cherry and canned cherry pie filling. The wheat beer is, I think, dragging down the cherries. Finish is better than the taste. It’s all right.

flatmatt (1060) - 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. Flavor’s decent, but it’s quite light.

tnkw01 (1052) - 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 (911) - 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 (847) - 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.
