COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Door County Cherry Wheat pours a golden, orange hue. The frothy two finger off-white, slightly pink-tinted head fades to leave a spotty lace. The slight aroma of cherries doesn’t over power the soft wheat smell. These flavors play wonderfully together, neither overpowering the other in taste. With a medium-light body, Cherry Wheat leaves you with a mildly tart Montmorency cherry finish.

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 it’s 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.

AirForceHops (3295) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 20, 2011
Pint size bottle, purchased @ Bert’s Better Beers, Hooskett, NH. Light carbonation, with small white head. No lace. Nose of wheat and light cherry. Taste is malty with a very subtle tart cherry finish. A hint of what you would taste in cherry pie. Lighter in body and very drinkable. Good for a wheat based fruit beer. Simple and straight-forward.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Tap. Orange pour with a semi-frothy white head. Wheat and just a touch of fruit in the nose. Medium light palate. All cherry on taste - tastes somewhat articifial. Still good.

This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity.

tmoreau (2472) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - AUG 15, 2011
One of the four Hinterland offerings served on tap at this year’s 25th annual GTOM in Madison, WI.. Dispensed to my fest glass with a hazed, orange/amber hue, decent, off white foam to the head, and wavey cling to the lacing. The aroma was light grain and bright, cherry tartness, which proceeded to the flavor with no astringency, but rather an altogether refreshing crispness. A very quaffable Fruit Beer, Joe!

Out of a pint sized bottle. Reddish hue color with a white head. Nice cherry sweetness but not overwhelming.

[Bottle] shared by jk. Thanks! Pours clear peachy gold with a soapy white head. Aroma is light and grainy, no cherry evident, light wheat malt. Flavor is very light, a touch of cherry, light grain and wheat. Pretty light overall, but drinkable.
