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 doesnít 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.

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

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.

This seems to be made w/ real cherries rather than extract so, hey, thatís a pretty good start. It pours headless and orange w/ a very slight pinkish tinge to it. Itís 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 styleís signature yeast character). Normally, I donít 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 Garusís fruit beers only w/ a lot more beer character.

Draft. Pours an opaque golden red color with a slight 1 finger head. Slight aroma of cherries. More tart cheer taste vs sweet but does have a subtle sweetness. Not bad. Very drinkable on a hot summer day.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 7, 2010
Light amber with a large pillowy white head. Aroma of candied cherry, almost cherry pie like, grains and wheat. Taste of cherry juice, wheat and malt. Goes down nice and easy and finishes up cherry. Actually, not too bad. If anything, a touch too sweet on the end.

tmoreau (2465) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - AUG 15, 2011
One of the four Hinterland offerings served on tap at this yearís 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!

Pours a cloudy gold with a good sized white head mostly lasting. Nose is cherries. Fairly creamy but not very well carbonated. Taste is pleasant, mostly slightly sour cherries, wheat, very light hops flavor with no bitterness. A pleasant summer sipping beer that pairs well with turkey deli sandwiches and chips.
