2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a cloudy orange with a huge bright white head and lots of lacing. Aroma is faint and unappealing. It honestly smells like soap and wet barley. No hint of cherry in the least. Taste is slightly better with a sweet tart candy-like sweetness, a low, weak cherry taste, and a very sour, dry finish. Decent palate with a light body and creamy texture with a good amount of carbonation. Overall this doesnít deserve the word "cherry" in the title, as they seem to be sorely lacking. By itself, this beer is easily dismissed. Although it is possible that this may go well with a dish that has a lot of flavor or spice, as it may help bring out the flavor of this beer.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
bottle - Pours pinkish orange with a huge head that required pouring in parts. The aroma is of cherries and a somewhat off smelling wheat and grain. The flavor is sweet with cherries and grain. It has a light, bubbly body. Bland. Okay, but barely.
100th fruit beer rating. Wish it was a better one.

nice big half pound bottle, yea a pint. rather sweet volatile mild cherry floral lace wet hair soapy aroma. orange-ee looking thing hith a healthy head. strong whammy bullshit of a beer, must be near 7%. alky cherry flavor like man batman; tart barely perceivable cherry thing smacking the back of throat. big bottle of punch you in the head, kick you in the teeth thing. widget widget widget; plenty of beer to go round, i really like these big bottles, less than a bomber but certainly more than a serving. interesting display on the head, gives it some bonus points.somewhat cough medicine finish, but not ina bad way. why am i thinking strong ale on this? yeah, the presentation of this saves it from being a below average.

On tap at Old Fashioned, pours a clear amber/red with a creamy white head and lacing through out the glass, the aroma has a slight cherry touch with more malt and wheat, the flavor has some cherry on teh front end with a sweet finish, wish the cherry came through a little more on this one, more wheat than anything.

Draft. Poured hazy orange reddish color and an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate dark cherry aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium cherry sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Refreshing soft fruit beer.

Best fruit beer on the market. Some serious cherry flavor but not overpowering. Good summer beer to sip on a hot day.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From notes. First reviewed 2/11/2011. Poured from a 16 oz. bottle into a pint glass.
Door County Cherry Wheat pours a slightly cloudy golden tangerine color. Actually, I am surprised at how clear it looks. A big frothy 4 cm off-white head gushes out of the bottle, but fading to a more manageable size by my first sip. Some bubbly lace sticks on the glass.
The aroma is fairly typical for a wheat beer - wheat, light malt, soft undefined sweetness, but the real kicker is the cherry. Tart and fresh, this is one of the strong points of this beer.
Light wheat starts out the flavor, but the focus here is on the generous addition of tart cherries. The flavor flirts dangerously with a medicinal cliff but avoid careening off of it. The finish is slightly tart and light.
Wheat beers are light and easy to drink with an unrefined graininess, and this no exception. There is a slight puckering at the end of the sip and a little bit of syrupy residue left behind after itís all over.
The tart cherry gives this wheat beer a slightly medicinal flavor, but given how tough some of these fruit-infused beers are to drink, I will give it the benefit of the doubt.

Light orange color. Light cherry and light wheat, with a hint of cinnamon in the flavor. Light overall. It could use more cherry flavor and aroma, as well as a heavier palate. There is not a lot going on, but it is drinkable enough.
