Another ale fermented with Montmorency cherries, Poolside is a light bodied wheat ale that blends clove and tart cherry flavors for a summer session beer.

Pour is a clear reddish with a average white head. Aroma is a very slight cherry with some wheat malt. Flavor is a more noticable bitter cherry but not much else. Some chewy wheat malt is present but nothing to add to the score. This was ok at best, I was hoping for a strong blast of cherry and this was more like a wheat beer with a few cherries adeed.

$2.35 can from Wine Warehouse. Pours a pinkish-orange with a large foamy off-white head. Aroma of bitter cherry, banana, yeast, and lemon. Taste is sweeter than I imagined. Cherry up front - not bitter - followed by banana, clove, honey... very interesting, Must say I am enjoying this one.

Can. Pours a reddish golden color with white head. Cherry, yeast, wheat, fruity aromas. Pie cherry, wheat, cream, yeast, fruity, sweet flavors. Kind of sweet, with a cherry pie filling flavor. But not a bad fruit beer.

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, itís too sweet and heavy, and the wit character that Iím 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 (6105) - 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.
