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.

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!

Can. Lactic cherry wheat malt and straw aroma. Cloudy dark amber with nice light tan head. Moderately sweet cherry, milk, toffee malt, and very lightly bitter straw flavor. Good body. Grew on me as I drank more.

Not excited for a cherry wheat, per se, but Bells has earned enough cred to give it a shot. Quite nice for what it is - a tart and fruity summer refresher than blends yeast aroma and flavor with tart and lightly sweet cherry quite well.

Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at home on one of the hottest days of the year. Appearance is a bright cherry hue with a rich white head, looks like fruit juice. Aroma is very faint, doesnt smell like much. Taste is pretty good, carbonated, light cherry tart, light Belgian yeast. Its decent

It pours hazy reddish with a large off white head. The aroma has bananas, berries, cherries, cream, wheat and Belgian Abbey yeast. It has a medium smooth body with very soft carbonation. The taste starts with smooth wheat, light caramel, creamed cherries and Abbey yeast. The finish has lots of hay. Interesting.

7/18/16. 12oz can from Craft on Draft. Light red pour under a nice tan head, great lacing. Belgian wheat base pops in the aroma, spice, Belgian yeast, soft wheat, grainy. Nice flavor, clean, Belgian yeast, slice, light cherry juice aspect, soft wheat. Would be good poolside, in fact.
