COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fruit beers originated in Belgium and we at The Station are proud to offer our version of these continental classics. Our light-bodied Chessie Cherry Wheat is a blend of red cherries and wheat ale, which yields a slightly sweet, yet agreeably tart, fruit ale.

Cloudy light amber body with just a hint of red. Full foamy head tops it off. Aroma of wheat and cherries. Fairly smooth brew. It starts sweet with wheat, malt, and cherries and ends with a nice tart bite. Pretty good example of a wheat fruit beer.

Tap at brewery. Very hazy deep amber. Lightly sweet with mild cherry. Needs more flavor.

Lemke10 (824) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 1, 2012
I got a 16oz glass of this that poured a cloudy amber orange color with a nice off-white head. The aroma was that of a cherry wheat scent. The taste was mild with a cherry and wheat taste delivering a slightly sweet tone. Was ok but could really use some more cherry flavor here. A decent fruit/wheat beer but there are better ones on the market.

burg326 (3861) - Florida, USA - AUG 5, 2012
On draft at Flossmoor, poured a muddy light pink color, aromas of wheat and light cherry. Flavors are wheat, and light tart cherries. Nice, light, crisp, and refreshing.

cbfobes (2340) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUL 13, 2012
On tap at the brewpub, pours a hazy amber/orange with a thin white head, the aroma is slightly of cherry and yeast, the flavor has an artificial cherry like front end with a finish of yeast and wheat, really not all that enjoyable.

Strykzone (5062) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 19, 2011
Sampled at the brewpub. A funky fruity appearance that is almost like a bloody Mary. Lots of thick lacing. The nose is cherries. That is also what is tasted. It is fairly dry with very slight bitterness. This is very east to drink and a nice summer beer.

Reviewed from notes. Pours a hazy light orange color with a bit of brown. The nose is some sweet cherries with a bit of dry grain and wheat in the background. Taste is overly sweet with cherries dominaing the entire palate. Feel is a bit cloying. Drinks okay and is refreshing as a summer beer, but not something I would really want again.

On tap at the brew pub, grrr, another attempt at a fruit beer...A super dirty river water mud brown, ok retention and lacing...The aroma is totally dead, can’t get a thing at all...Taste is overly sweet and generic syruo with a light wheat middle, and a metallic finish. No redeeming qualities in this one at all, skip i
