3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I actually drank this around 7:30 in the evening, so that may or may affect my perceptions of this beer. It smells very fruity - grape and blackberry, some mango, and a lot of bubblegum notes. Taste is equally fruity - a lot of blackberry flavors, actually. Not bad at all.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Whole Foods, Sacramento. Pours cloudy blonde with a thick white head and a cherry aroma. There is a tart cherry flavor that leaves bitterness on the palate and a bit of banana ester. Refreshing, but not particularly tasty.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a hazy straw color with a fruity grape/cherry aroma. Palate is a bit oily, without as much lift from the carbonation as I expected. Wheat flavor is very prominent and a bit unbalanced, with a bit that I didn’t really enjoy.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a pale lightly cloudy yellow. Big white foam that slowly melts. The aroma is almost soda like, maybe fruit cocktail. Taste is sort of a lightly fruited wheat beer. Very wheaty if that's a description. High carbonation. Overall a pretty good beer. I've never had a breakfast beer. Unique with an unusual fruit finish.
More beer please...

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours hazy gold with white head and fizzy body. Nose is pale malt, hopcitrus, berries. Tastes sweet, with a big raspberry flavor, pale malt, backup hops, and cherry vanilla hints late. This one was refreshing.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2012 375mL, caged & corked MOA bottle. Very floral nose of tart cherries. Some wheat, some pineapple. Mostly tart cherries, not unlike a fruit Lambic. Pours golden, white ring of foam. Pilsner like bite, sharp grassy character layered in between the malts and fruit addition. Wheat really comes out in the flavor with the underlining of cherry essence. A well done fruit beer. Light and refreshing. Medium bodied, yet heavy enough to enjoy at a nice brunch. The beer improves tremendously as it opens up. The cherry tartness begins to escape and leave the sweet cherry character behind. Very well made, it has traveled nicely as well. Anyone who rates this low does not really appreciate how gentle a wheat beer could be. (3454)

Hazy yellow, frothy head. Aroma is very floral, some citrus, lots of coriander and nutmeg. Pretty light and crisp. Nice beer at 10AM, just livening up my palate for today’s other beers.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Smells of bubblegum. Flavor is a bit soapy. I generally love nelson hops, but cherry beers have to be done just right to avoid tasting like cough syrup, or in this case soapy. It’s OK, just not a combo I would ever rech for.

1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle at Dan’s courtesy of Aaron. Thanks man. . .I think. Pour is golden in appearance with no head. Smell is big bubble tape, cough syrup, soap, medicinal, and raspberries. Taste is big cough syrup, dish soap, pepto, tang, and flowers. Mouthfeel is light with high carbonation. Why must Aaron torture me with these beers, wtf.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Pour out of 375 mL bottle, thanks Aaron! Pour is clear yellow with white head, aroma brings notes of robitussen, some bubble tape, hints of vanilla, cherry cola vanilla, touch of earth and cough syrup, yuck. Taste is nasty cough syrup, biscuit, vanilla, bitter grimey medicine notes, finishing with some chalk, alkaline nastiness, finishing bitter and dry and chalky. This is really, really bad.
