On tap at Bells. Light aroma of cherry pie and some grain. Pours a murky rosy orange with little head. Flavor follows the nose with a fair bit of sweetness to it...bordering on too much. Other than that a good beer for the hot day it is.

Sample on tap at Eccentric. Body is amber with a little bit of a rosy head and aromas of cherries and wheat maltiness. Flavor follows suite and makes me wish it wasn’t a dreary Michigan day. In spite of the fruit this is crisp and refreshing with a little bit of pie cherry tartness to it.

draft at the brewpub - Pours cloudy pink with a thin head. It smells of yeast and wheat. The taste is sweet and light. The cherries are definitely there, but are not overpowering. Light bodied without being watery, this beer is a flavorful wheat ale.

I really enjoyed this. Bells take on a Cherry wheat was quite pleasent. Compared to other cherry wheats, poolside is not very sweet. The sweetness is sutble, while the flavor is rice in cherries. Beautiful red body with pink head.

12oz tap at the Eccentric Cafe - Crisp wheat aroma with a hint of cherry and light malts. Pours cloudy light brown with a small bubbly head and great lacing. Flavor is initially sweet cherry followed by a nice wheat malt finish. Palate is soft and smooth. Poolside indeed, a tasty summer brew.

On tap at Bells 8/16/08. Light and refreshing, wheaty with a touch of cherries for taste, not overpowering like the stout. A summer porch beer for sure, i could enjoy these by the six pack.

Poured a cream/orange color from the tap. Very similar to a hefeweizen in consistency and flavor. Almost vinegar finish.

badnewsbeers (2312) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUL 31, 2008
on tap at the eccentric cafe...very basic and quite bland, but a summer quaff for sure..pours hazy yellow, slightly orange with minimal white head..aroma of cherry syrup and wheat...wheat is more pronounced in the flavor, with a an artificial cherry flavor in the finish...nice but basic

On tap at the Eccentric Café. Orange-pink colored like pink grapefruit juice with no head. Aroma of cherry, wheat and light yeast. Taste of cherries and wheat with a tart and somewhat crisp finish. Better than most fruit wheat beers out there.
