On tap at Capone’s. Poured a cloudy orangish color with a small sized head. Cherries on the subtle side. Lighter ... some grains / wheat, with lighter spice.

Can->goblet. Murky peach-orange with moderate frothy eggshell head. A: wheat, mild cherries, grains. Dull and grainy. T: more of the same, with grains and wheat dominating with a pinch of cherries. Eh.

Pours a milky pink grapefruit juice color with a decent rocky eggshell head that forms some foamy clumps of lace. Nose is Belgian Wit yeast in droves with that dusty spicy yeast character, some notes of citrus and wheat. Fairly sweet, very lightly bitter, somewhat tart. Medium bodied, grainy, somewhat juicy, with a drying dusty yeasty finish. For me, it’s too sweet and heavy, and the wit character that I’m not a fan of dominates, while the cherry contributions are minimal in both aroma and flavor. Not nearly as refreshing as I would want.

Suttree (6075) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 1, 2016
Pinkish orange, with a big, frothy white head. Smells like cherry, lemon, and some banana and fresh bread. Taste is cherry, some toast, some lemon, and a crisp, grassy finish.

can. Golden pink with one finger head. Light body, moderately sweet with a bit of wheat and mild fruity notes. Slight Belgian yeast. Has potential, but pretty bland aside from the sweetness..

A top notch session beer shines from start to finish. If not for the huge selection of other summer beers this one might be a fixture of taking to the pool on a hot day. If big imperial stouts are not your speed then try switching up the pace with this excellent seasonal.

Aroma / Appearance - A warm cloudy base shines like a pool of bronze water. Fresh white supportive head lasts for a long time before settling down. Fresh bread dough, cherry pie, and a bright airy feel hallmark a well executed and thought out profile.

Flavor / Palate - Fresh cherries soaked in lemon custard blend fruitiness. The mild smooth mouthfeel tickles the palate before carrying to a flavorful finish. The texture never gets assertive or overbearing. At the same time it does not immediately fade into the crowd after seconds. This definitely would not be out of place by the lakeside or pool.

12 oz. can. Nearly opaque peach-orange body with a sticky, thin covering of foam. Nose is spicy-fruity yeast, honey with the beeswax, wheat, and cherry. Tastes the same but with more honey and bread up front, bordering on cloying. Finish has beeswax and resin to almost provide some balance. Lightly acidic-tart cherry pie note grows and helps to provide a bit more balance, but this still leans heavily to the sweet side. Medium body gets a little sticky but has a pleasant, medium-plus carbonation that helps dissipate it a bit. Uniquely tasty, but too sweet to even have two.

Poured a hazy orange with a white head. Aroma was of what, orange, yeast, and very light cherry. Flavor was overly sweet wheat beer with faint cherry. Not really refreshing at all.

Can. Cloudy rusted amber with a short white head. Aroma is fruity but not necessarily obvious cherries along with wheat notes and sweet malt. Taste is candied fruit, cherries, wheat and yeast notes. Body is light-medium with a moderate, creamy carbonation and a light stickiness. Ends with slightly tart cherries, candied fruit, wheat and yeast. Nice summer beer!
