Corked bottle from Kenny Rd Market. Gold pour with thin bright white head and visible carbonation. Aroma of strong berry bubblegum. Tastes are black cherry, artificial sweetness, wheat/grain, light banana. Bit of a cough syrup vibe here. Highly carbonated. Not for me.

375 ml bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy golden orange color with a 2 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lightly tart cherry, lemon, white grape, white wine, berries, wheat, cracker, herbal, floral, grass, and herbal/floral earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of bright/floral hops, cherry, and pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of lightly tart cherry, lemon, white grape, white wine, berries, wheat, cracker, herbal, floral, grass, and herbal/floral earthiness. Fair amount of earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of cherry, lemon, white grape, white wine, berries, wheat, cracker, grass, and herbal/floral earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Very nice balance and complexity of bright/earthy hops, cherry, and pale malt flavors; with a nice crisp malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and fairly dry mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice fruited lager style. All around good balance, robustness, and complexity of bright/earthy hops, cherry, and pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml corked bottle from Puerto Rico Food & Wine, no pop on opening or bottle date. Pours a clear orangey tan with a ring of a white head. Lowly carbonated. Aroma has sweet fruits, in an interesting combination. Plus some grain and spice. Taste is of sweet fruits, of an unrecognizable flavor, some tangy spice and a touch of earthiness. A bit like sweet tarts in some ways. Light to medium bodied. Finishes tangy and sweet. Shrug? Light and interesting. 12.9

Nice citrus fruity aroma, good cloudy wheat beer, highly carbonated, a bit skunky smell, but not skunky flavor. Good on a hot day. Refreshing

"Quite the interesting brew that I really didn’t expecting from and found myself pleasantly surprised by its uniqueness. The only thing I thought going in was fruity pebbles, which I was told it tasted like. Didn’t know a style (still don’t really). Upon the pour initial aroma is perfumey hops... Then some hard to place light fruitiness atop a nice, light refreshing body. Taste similar, but also has a hint of vanilla and is slightly more obviously cherries. "

Pours a fairly clear solar yellow with a thick eggshell head. Aroma is more fruity than wheaty, not strong, but inviting. Wheaty flavor has a firm fruity note, equal parts pear and citrus, a bit thin but still refreshing. Texture has average thickness and not a whole lot of fizz. Well, have it for breakfast.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Best before July 24, 2014.
Glass: Duvel tulip.
Appearance: Clear golden body with a dense and creamy white head.
Aroma: Big sweet cherry, bordering on medicinal and candy. There’s a hint of tartness with some banana and vanilla as well. This smells nice, but a bit too pungent with the cherries and a bit too medicinal.
Taste: Big bold banana, cherry and vanilla. The finish lingers a bit of Dum-Dum Cherry Pop.
Palate: Creamy and full.
Overall: Overall this is a very pleasant beer that is bold in fruit flavors with a great mouthfeel. I would like this fresher to really gauge it, but it drinks fine now.

Actually, a nice refreshing beer, could see it being a good breakfast beer, like a mimosa almost. Pours a gross clear yellow. Smells great, tropical fruit, grapefruit and white cherry. Taste is lots of fruit, peach, cherry and tropical flavors. A white wine aftertaste. Smooth and refreshing. Had in the bottle.
