3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pint bottle. Hazy orange pour with the thinest of thin white head, which disappeared immediately. Sweet aroma of bready malt with faint cherry. Light on the palate with a nice tart cherry flavor right up front. Not sweet at all, but flavored just right to give you a slight tingle on the tongue. Definitely not first in class, but pretty refreshing on a warm day in June.

Flavor is tart with Cherry, Wheat, Floral Hop, and Malty Notes. The flavors a well balanced and quite flavorful without being too sweet. It’s not perfect nor is it for everyone but for what it is, it’s alright!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
16 oz bottle pours a clear orange with huge, lasting white head and lots of lacing. Aroma is cherries, honey, wheat and some hops. Mouthfeel is tingly due to excessive carbonation. Taste is slightly sweet up front with a bitter finish. After it warms up, some malts come out in the finish. I’m not a big fan of this style, but would enjoy this one if it weren’t for all the carbonation.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
16oz bottle. Half - hazy orange amber color. Thin airy white head. Strong soft carbonation. Some lace. Cherry taste is there, up front. Kind of lightly tart sweet taste. Some wheat grains. Gets a bit better towards the end as the carbonation flattens a bit, but still not great. Strong carbonation and fruit is not a good combo for me

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of all foam finely sized light tan colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a softly carbonated slightly hazy yellow orange colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was malty cherry and fruity. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish which lasted a long time. The flavor contained notes of mild cherry and malt that gets stronger in the finish. Not revolting like some in this style, not bad, kinda grows on you.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle sample at the Hinterland tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 9/20/12. Clear amber pour with a medium off-white head. Aroma of creamy wheat, honey and sweet cherry. Flavor is cherry pie filling with a slight tartness. Light hop bitterness on the finish. Very nicely done.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pint bottle from West Lakeview LIquors. Pours a cloudy, golden-amber colored body with an inch thick, dense and frothy, pinkish white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is crisp wheats with some crackers and a light cherry backing. Fairly grainy with a touch of grass. Flavor is grainy and crackery wheats up front with much more of a cherry flavor than the aroma. A touch of sweetness to the cherries with a bit of a bitterness coming off as well as a touch of tartness in the finish. A few florals before this finishes dry and somewhat sweet from the cherries before leaving a fairly lengthy aftertaste. Medium body and a moderately lively carbonation. Overall, a decent fruit beer/wheat. Nice amount of cherries with a light sweetness and touch of tartness that goes pretty well with a lighter, crisp wheat backing. Nothing special, but not bad.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Refrigerated 16 oz. brown bottle poured into a weizen glass. Pours translucent orange with medium white head that dies some. Good big bubble lacing, medium body, medium carbonation, and wheaty aroma. Taste is cherry and estery wheat. Pretty good.

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 doesn’t 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.
