COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American style fruit beer made with Wisconsin’s Door County cooking cherries and lager yeast. The tartness of the cherry is balanced with the sweetness from the 2-row barley and the flavoring of Mt. Hood hops.

What I love about this beer is, that as a fruit beer, Lakefront Cherry Beer is a little different. Most fruit beers are ales, this beer is a lager. It is brewed with Wisconsin cherries, and a hefty two pounds of cherry per gallon is used in the brewing of this beer. The aroma and sour flavors of cherry take center stage in this beer. Lakefront Cherry Beer pours to a slightly hazy golden/pink color with a tight white head, and a moderate carbonation. The nose is the first thing that hits you, aromas of sour cherries marry with subtle touches of biscuit malt aroma. The palate is crisp, with good biscuit malt flavors, and an underpinning of almond/cherry stone flavors. The body is lean, tart, and very smooth. The finish is the show stopper in my opinion, it is a wonderful, sour cherry edge that lingers. This is a wonderful summer brew, very thirst quenching, and refreshing. It is like drinking fresh picked sour cherries. I could drink a LOT of this beer

Light ruby amber color. Smallish head. Light malt and cherry flavor. The brewery has toned down the amount of cherries since the earlier versions. The cherries are now very subtle and add to the flavors of malt and hops rather than distract from them. Nice effort.

While not always a fan of fruity beers, Lakefront Cherry Lager is the exception. Usually, I find fruit flavoring too sweet and overpowering. But, this beer has a subtle hint of tart cherry flavor. A very good lager for warm summer months. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beer pours hazy rust red with a nice sized head. The aromas are of light cherries with some maltiness. The flavor shows the door county cherries even bolder but with the nice amnount of malt backing up the crisp mouthfeel.

Pours gold with a red hue. Aroma is of dark cherries similar to the types found in Cherry Pie. Taste is initially sour followed by a deep taste of cherry. Underneath with the cherry appears the malt sweetness and the beer finishes with a dry crispness that carries with it a lingering tartness. Very bubbly on the palate.

Nice light amber color. Slight malt aroma. Cherries and malt complement each other nicely. An enjoyable brew.

6 Pack - Pours a dark reddish/light orange color, with perfect whitish pink head. Aroma is, of course, fresh cherries, wheat, malt, and crispness. Taste is same, surprisingly the cherry flavor is nicely tart, just a little sour, and not artifical or cloying - nice. Light-bodied and refreshing. Pretty great for a fruit beer.

Bottle Pours out a redish amber topped with a off white cream head. Aroma of sweet cherry pie. A quick reminder of the famous Belg Red. Tast sweet with cherries a nice malt mix. I was very happy with this one.
