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.

phaleslu (6335) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 21, 2011
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.

weihenweizen (1676) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - SEP 10, 2012
Refrigerated 16 oz. brown bottle poured into a weizen glass. Pours translucent orange with medium white head that dies some. Good big bubble lacing, medium body, medium carbonation, and wheaty aroma. Taste is cherry and estery wheat. Pretty good.

troyc (2473) - Illinois, USA - JUL 26, 2010
[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.

[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.

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

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.

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.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Pint bottle from West Lakeview LIquors. Pours a cloudy, golden-amber colored body with an inch thick, dense and frothy, pinkish white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is crisp wheats with some crackers and a light cherry backing. Fairly grainy with a touch of grass. Flavor is grainy and crackery wheats up front with much more of a cherry flavor than the aroma. A touch of sweetness to the cherries with a bit of a bitterness coming off as well as a touch of tartness in the finish. A few florals before this finishes dry and somewhat sweet from the cherries before leaving a fairly lengthy aftertaste. Medium body and a moderately lively carbonation. Overall, a decent fruit beer/wheat. Nice amount of cherries with a light sweetness and touch of tartness that goes pretty well with a lighter, crisp wheat backing. Nothing special, but not bad.

burg326 (3640) - 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.

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.
