4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12.7 fl oz / 375ml corked and caged bottle into a Samuel Adams glass. Served cold.
Aroma: Bright and fruity cherries! A little spice maybe. This smells like good morning smiles.
Appearance: Bright and kind of hazy, translucent yellow body with a rocky, very fluffy, very large white head that gradually fizzes away. Very bubbly body.
Taste: Aw yeah, sweet and tart cherry. Nice light malty, bready flavor. It tastes like good fresh cherry jam on real bread. Really, really tasty.
Palate: Very light body, but not watery at all. Bright. Fizzy. Refreshing.
Overall: What a wonderful beer! I feel like I could drink this every morning with breakfast.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from the bottle and tried too wait for breakfast but I’ve been too busy so I busted it out tonight. Instantly noticed the Champaign like head and flavor. Even dryness. The fruit is definitely cherry! Pretty good and I can see how it would be good for breakfast.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from Beer Cartel. Hazy light gold, aroma is bubblegum (reminds me of Hubba Bubba when I was a kid), sickly-sweet fruit, more raspberry lollies than cherry, at least there’s some wheat and yeast characters in the flavour to tone down the sweetness. Quite light and watery, not great at all. Sorry Moa, not one of your best.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
12.7 ounce bottle - $4.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a hazed, light gold body with a medium-sized, fizz-fueled, white head.
Smell: Ah, geez, it’s one of those five-buck medicinal cherry beers. I want this cleared up right now!
Taste: You can tell there’s a wheat-laced lager underneath a cherry flavor leaning towards Robitussin, which is the bulk of the taste lasting beyond the crisp finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation.
Overall: The medicinal quality of this one is an instant turn off for me. Not the best use of five bucks, I must say.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: Sweet cherry, light bubblegum & wheat.
Appearance: Looks very carbonated, quite a thin head, lightly cloudy, pale straw colour.
Taste: First taste of a nice wheat beer, hints of banana and vanilla, second taste of bitter cherry and bubblegum, a bit metallic.
Palate: Creamy in the mouth, medium carbonation, overly metallic and bitter after-taste.
Overall: A nice aroma, although a bit sweet. Taste is very preferential, lovely wheat beer flavours, but the cherry is a bit sweet on the nose, and bitter to the taste.

From AC Beer Fest 2013. The aroma is bubblegum, banana, cherries. Hazy yellow color. The flavor is identical, but less sweet than expected. The finish is cereal grain, slightly acidic. Not bad.
