zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 21, 2007
At the Monroeville, PA location. Part of a large sampler. Hazy orange with white head. Aroma is weak cherry and malt. Flavor is the same; a bit like diluted cherry cough syrup. John Harvardís beers do not have much complexity.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4919) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 1, 2007
Sampled on draft at the Monroeville PA location this beer poured an orange-amber color with a small white head. The aroma was light sour cherry. The flavor was sweet cherry with a lightly roasty malt underbody and a long sweet cherry finish.

On tap at JH - Wayne, PA... Appears a semi-transparent haze of pale gold with a small white head of foam that quickly fades away. Tiny speckles of lace quickly slip back down into the average sized collar. Smell is of some tart wheat, lemons, perhaps a tiny dollop of cherry...albeit I wouldíve never guessed thatís what it was had I not been shown the beer had 44 lbs of cherries added. Power of suggestion? Smells like a typical American Wheat to me. Taste is of the mentioned aromas with a hay like presence, along with a doughy yeast lingering. Mouthfeel is light bodied, mildly tart and bitter with a lip smacking sweet tartness.

Nate (3727) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 19, 2005
Draught at Monroeville. Very weak aroma. A bit of cherry fruitiness but overall very weak. Light malt sweetness and cherry skin tartness. Hazy orange-amber with thin white lacing head. Light bodied with medium carbonation. Starts with little character, mild carbonic acidity. Has mild cherry notes at first then the hops kick in and Iím left with a light astringent chalkiness. Watery weak finish and mild wheatiness.

DocLock (7857) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2005
Pours hazy golden pink with aroma of hopcit, wheat, cherries, lemongrass. Tastes of hopcit and cherry, with a half decent complexity.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 22, 2005
DC - Draft. Clear pinkish amber, thin white fizzy head. Nice nose on this one with a grassy, cherry pie, wheaty thing going on. Was told it was a 50/50 blend of sour and standard cherry, and that seems to come out nicely in the flavor. Somewhat tart with a very light sweetness up front, but blended nicely with the wheat and light hop notes in the end. Light bodied, prickly carbonation, tart cherry finish. Nice lawnmower session brew for the spring and summer...

blank (996) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 30, 2002
A nice light change. A wheat beer with a nice cherry flavor. Definatly a good trip to Harvards!
