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.

UPDATED: OCT 6, 2010 Pour a slightly cloudy reddish mid-amber with minimal head and a light lace around the edges. Aroma of cherries and malt. Taste of malts and citrus and then finishes with slightly sweet cherries and low hops. A decent body with low-natural carbonation. Overall, pretty good fruit wheat ale. Worth a try if you get near the Green Bay area.

on tap @ Brew River Gastropub / Cincinnati OH --- Hazy dark amber, foamy rim head, strings of lace. Taste is malt that adds caramel and a quick mild shot of Queen Anne cherries, moving on to a finish that is hopped just enough to balance. The cherry lingers deep into the finish. This works because it is more about the malt than it is the fruit.

This seems to be made w/ real cherries rather than extract so, hey, that’s a pretty good start. It pours headless and orange w/ a very slight pinkish tinge to it. It’s slightly cloudy and nearly headless. The nose on this is mostly cherries up front w/ a pretty decent bready malt presence in the background. Taste is lightly sweet and tart which brings the focus more on the cherries. This is medium bodied w/ a creaminess from the wheat which gives it a nice juicy texture reminiscent of a hefeweizen (though this has nothing of that style’s signature yeast character). Normally, I don’t like this sort of thing at all but this is reasonably subtle for being so cherry focus and generally well put together. This reminds me somewhat of New Garus’s fruit beers only w/ a lot more beer character.

Aurelius (4062) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Cereal aroma. Standard longneck, generic label. Clear, maple colored beer with a little pink tinge, lacy white head. Not sweet. Reminds me of the crust just below the cherry pie filling - doughy, infused with cherry juice. Not bitter. Light body, some tang in the finish along with a few sharper cherry notes. Easy drinking, but not going to set the world on fire. ABC, Betton.

Just a middle of the road beer. Had enough cherry to it to call it a cherry beer. But almost no additions to taste from the wheat ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PorterPounder (5367) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 3, 2014
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - Betton - 12 oz bottle. Slightly hazy, medium copper pour, little to no head. Aroma is pretty much neutral, perhaps a hint of fresh lake water. Flavor has a hint of sour cherries, some cherry flavored bready muffin qualities, a touch of yeast. Mouthfeel has a nice texture to it. Nice and refreshing, just not overly flavorful.

arkurzynski (1487) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - APR 28, 2014
Deep orange pour. Light wheat malt and faint candied cherry withlight vanilla. Flavor is a surprisingly nice tart cherry pie filling, subtle but present, with caramel malt and that tingy wheat ale finish, slightly acidic. Lingering cherry and wheat malt. All-in-all a surprise.

JonnyMadison (31) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 21, 2014
Pint sized bottle. Very refreshing, with a sour finish. The cherry and wheat flavors are subtle, which is great if you want a relaxing drinkable ale, but too little if you were expecting bold flavors.

burg326 (3575) - Florida, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Poured a cloudy orange color with aromas of light bread, tart medicinal cherries, a touch of lemon and some grain. Flavors were light wheat and medicinal cherries, kind if disappointed in this thought there would be better cherry flavor and was not overpowering, but for this beer the tart and fake cherry flavor was a little too much.

Noodle (13) - Ohio, USA - NOV 21, 2013
Light on cherry, light on wheat, light on malt, but rather sour tasting. Almost tastes like a gueuze with a slight hint of cherry. It is a bit refreshing, but just short on flavor and aroma, and nothing like I was expecting.

fluffy (1501) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - OCT 9, 2013
seems almost more like an lambic. its sour, with none of the wheat flavor you should expect with the style. the sourness adds a nice factor over most overly sweet fruit beers. but its still not very good.
