3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Grain on the aroma with the faintest hint of wheat and even less wheat. Gold with a reddish hue. The body is much better, with a fantastic door county cherry flavor.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
16 oz. bottle brought down from Wisconsin by my aunt-in-law. Pours a slightly red-tinted golden color with an inch-thick foamy white head that settles fairly quickly into a ring. Aroma offers cherries, wheat, pale malts, sugar, and grass. Flavor of sweet cherries, wheat, sweet malts, and dry cereal grains. Didn’t quite have the balance or freshness of the aroma. Light-bodied, with a sweet, dry mouthfeel and medium-high carbonation. Not bad.

Tried this beer at the Casanova Beer Cave Festival (2011), did not care for the sweetness.
