On draft for a tapping at Chappyís in Dayton, OH. Poured a very orange color. Good aroma of citrus and fruits. Taste was pleasantly very good. Strong citrus flavor and stronger then I expected. Iíd drink this again.

DocLock (9857) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2010
Draft at CAH. Pours heavily turbid straw colored with 1-finger off-white head. Nose is big cherry, pale malt, mild hops, bready, slight floral. Tastes of big cherry, malty, with hops, a subdued muted maltiness matched by a strong yet well integrated cherry flavor. Fairly rich and complex as fruit beers go.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 4, 2010
On tap at Eccentric for RBSG. Pours a soft pink with a fluffy small white head. Aroma is slightly cherry, very wheat and grainy. Flavor is much less cherry than I hoped, more grainy and wheaty. Not to say it is not refreshing, I just hoped for more complexity and real cherry sharpness. Light to medium body and a sharp fizzy carbonation. Alright, but Iíve had much better cherry wheat beers.

Iím not usually into fruit-flavors beers, but the Bells Poolside Cherry is very delicious. The beer pours a cloudy and hazy dark golden color with a thick and rich white head. The head leaves a nice amount of lacing around the sides of the glass. The nose is full of sweet cherries, a slight hint of banana and some light cloves. The flavors were fairly sweet, but not over-the-top. Obviously cherries dominated the body, but some banana, clove and yeast helped to round out the beer.

Draught at TJís: Faint aroma of wheat, slight bubblegum, yeast, and a hint of cherry. Poured a muddy orange/brown in color with a medium-sized, creamy, dense, tan head that lasted throuhgout. Opaque. Medium to heavily sweet flavor. Tastes of wheat, light bubblegum, yeast, and light sweet cherry. Medium body. Lightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Wheat and cherry finish is sweet.

Served from tap into a standard shaker. Pours a hazy yellow orange with a red hue mixed in with a one finger white head. Maintains excellent lacing throughout. The aroma is comprised of bananas, cherries, and malt. The flavor followed the nose with bananas, cherries, and malt. It was light on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a nice refreshing summer brew. It definitely had a robust fruit character to it. Not my favorite style but could probably find myself enjoying a few more of these in the future.

kbutler1 (1378) - North Carolina, USA - AUG 1, 2010
Draft. Stopped in the brewery and had a little sampler of several beers. Pours an opaque reddish tan with a nice little white head. Slight tart cherry aroma w/wheat. The cherry taste is nice which then transfers smoothly to the wheat style backbone. Slight bitter end. Very smooth and drinkable. Medium mouthfeel. Good lace left on the glass.

Pretty nice. Well carbonated, refreshing, easy to drink. Iím pretty surprised by the abv. Pretty good beer.

Eccentric draft @ RBSG. Pours an unclear light pink strawcolor with a small fizzy head. Aroma is light cherry pie with just a hint of fruit acidity. Flavor follows, light cherry pie and acidity, refreshing and drinkable but not really my thing. Iím not a huge fan of the pie-crust flavor, a little too dirty for me, but the cherry flavor is quite nice. Reminds me a bit of Founders cerise but with less cherry and slightly cleaner than theirs.
