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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cherry, bubblegum, banana and vanilla notes. The palate has sweet cherries, bubblegum and then the wheat. Very slight bitterness and gentle malt towards end of palate. Very enjoyable and different lager. Perhaps slightly sweet to have more than a two, but would be enjoyable at breakfast as the name suggests

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer is one of a kind. The nose is cherry kool-aid but the beer is dry and crisp. The cherry is only experienced in the nose. Very light straw color with striking white head. A good looking beer with a champagne-like character. Not overly bitter, slightly sour and refreshing.
