Sample at the North Market Microbrew Festival on 09/12/2009 (happy 29th berfday to me). Cloudy orange pour with a thin white head. Cherry syrup aroma with malt and a bit of sourness. Flavor is a nice mixture of classic Berliner Weisse and cherry, but the cherry syrup is too sweet and overshadows the sour aspect. Would have been better with actual cherries instead of cherry syrup, but still a decent offering from a chain brewery.
