Draft at Revolution. Pours a very cloudy pinkish orange with a lasting white head. Nose is tart cherries, wheat bread and light spiciness. On taste, the cherries really come through quite nicely. Kind of like a wit with cherries, some citrus peaks through as well as more of the wheat notes. Very refreshing and natural tasting. No odd industrial notes. Quite nice.

16oz pour from tap. Extremely cloudy, yellow/orange body with white head. Wheat yeast in the nose with faint cherry backing. Initially slightly sweet malt followed by huge cherry flavor finishing slightly dry and sour. Wonderful wheat.

On tap at a Bells fest. This beer is very solid and a great summer dinker. It had a great wheat backbone with a very nice cherry aspect. Its muddy as hell on the appearance, but very nice on the tongue. Thatís just how fruit wheats go, as far as appearance. Another good Bells!!!

Fruity, yeasty nose with some cherry, peach and banana. Lightly sweet, lightly bitter taste with cherries, almonds, peach, apple and honey. Medium body is round with moderate carbonation. I wasnít expecting to enjoy this one, but itís actually a very sold beer... for a style thatís usually just mailed in by brewers. Iíd happily drink this again.

(Draught) Pours a cloudy golden orange body with a small white head. Aroma of wheat, cherry, dough, and clove. Flavor of cherry, lemon, and wheat. Okay.

On tap at Maduro. Poured medium peachy-golden with a well-retained cap of whitish head. The aroma picked up dry, tangy cherry and yeasty notes first and foremost with a crisp, airy, summery impression. The flavor found tangy cherries first with pale malts and a touch of light fruit behind.. somewhat deeper cherry meat at the core.. finished dry and yeasty with cherries and spicy wheat. Lighter-bodied with the fruit complementing the wheat decently.. refreshing stuff.

On draft as poolside ale. Looks like a wheat ale and has a nice sweet aroma. However, one tast and the cherry flavor comes out. Tart cherry undertone with a light straw type taste.
