UPDATED: APR 8, 2014 Tap: Deep copper, brown-ish and muddled throughout, except for at the edges. Topped off with a light-beige colored collar. Aroma has some light cherry notes with a backbone of grain and soft wheat. Very mild chalkiness to the aroma. Kind of sweet. Really mild, not a whole lot of stuff going on here. Taste is actually not that "sweet" up front. I get very light cherry flavors, kind of watered down concerning the fruit. I get a lot of bourbon barrel flavors, too... Too much bourbon for this style, really. Not really sweet, not really sour... Just lots of bourbon, oak, and some secondary cherry fruits. Not bad, but not really what you want for the style.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
Pailhead (4413) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - OCT 6, 2013
On tap: The aroma consists of moderate sweet cherry and a hint of tart cherry. There’s also some hints of oak and vanilla. It’s a mostly transparent dark amber with a minimal off-white head that quickly fades to a thin ring. The flavor starts with a quick dose of sweet and lightly tart cherry. The finish has bourbon, light oak, and vanilla. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel. Overall, it’s decent, but it’s no longer a Berliner Weisse at this point.
