3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours to a deep amber body with a lightly-off white head. Nice lacing. The aroma is heavily floral hops, grain, dash of cherries, and wheat. The flavor has a heavy grain bill up front with some nice sweet and lightly tart cherries in the middle and finishes with a floral hop. Wheaty pie crust. Palate makes the mouth water and has a lingering cherry. Medium bodied.

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.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pint bottle. Pours a light glowing clear pink biscuit color with a fine frothy sticky white head. Aroma is very cracker-like, huge wheat, a bit stinky, grains, light grass, just a hint of vegetable, medium cherry note, some other stuff I can’t quite place right now, starting to get a nicer cherry pie note now, the stinky hops against the cherry really throw me. Certainly an odd cherry beer, the bitterness can throw it off quite a bit, but nice cherry flavor that is quite balanced, the attenuation is near perfect, not too dry to be soda-poppy against the carbonation, but just sweet enough, I suppose it is off-dry and very drinkable, nice cherry pie flavor, floral hops, the hops in the finish add a winey and bitter touch that is unique, really nice moderation in flavors that have been done to death but in the wrong way with other breweries. Med/light bodied, softer spread-out carbonation that has just enough pop, smooth, refreshing. Cool beer, reaching for somewhere to give it more points.

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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
[Tap] Pours a hazy red color with a nice cap of off-white head. Sweet cherry aroma. Quite sweet overall. Tastes of wheat malt, cherry cough drop, tart fruits, grains, mildly tart finish. The palate is a bit thin for the level of sweetness in here. Average carbonation level. This really is not too bad for what it is.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
