3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
11.5 ounce bottle into weizen glass, bottled 05/12/11. Pours hazy red-orange color with a fairly foamy 2-3 fingers of off white head with great retention that reduces to a fairly thick lacing cap. A lot of bubbles streaming up from the bottom of the glass, and it also formed instant head on the pour that had to settle down. Aromas of big cherry notes, with some apple, grass, bread, and spices. Aromas are pretty weak as I would have expected, but the cherry smells quite authentic. Taste of big spiciness on the front with some cherry sweetness, light tartness, bread, and light fruits in the back. Lingering spice and fruit notes on the finish for a bit. Not much complexity going on here. Tons of carbonation with a light-medium body. Mouthfeel is quite prickly, but this still drinks very smoothly. No alcohol noticed other than a slight warming on the finish. Overall, a pretty good wheat beer that is quite refreshing. I may have it again.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
Weird somewhat off fruit initial impressions. Big rocky head. Lots of co2 on the palate. Candy alky almost cloying. Yep, donít be fooled, not really too wheaty, more like wheat ale-ish. More bitterness and medicine like fruitishness than a hint. Soapy at times?

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear amber-orange color with a medium thin foamy white head that recedes slowly. Partial sticky rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, wheat and cherry. Light body with flavors of cherries, malt, wheat and a bit of citrus zest. The finish is fruity with a short mildly tart cherry aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Out-of-control head (as noted by others), even on a slow top of the glass pour. Aroma invites, but taste doesnít back it up. Balance depends on sour tartness rather than hops, which makes it a poor pairing with most foods. Interesting, but not a keeper.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
11.5 oz bottle: Aroma has got a nice wheat texture to it, lightly fruity, yeast, and a bit of a grainy note. Appearance is a clear golden amber with a medium to large head that diminishes quickly. Taste has got some fruitiness to it, wheat, and yeast. Palate is somewhat tart on the aftertaste. Going down itís medium to low carbonation. Mouthfeel is sticky and medium bodied. Overall, a run of the mill craft beer good but not great. Cheers!

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce bottle, bottled on June 16th, 2011. Served in a Leinenkugelís Sunset Wheat glass, the beer pours a hazy golden/orange color with a huge off-white head. I couldnít fit the whole bottle into the glass because the head was so big, I had to wait for the head to settle down some to finish before pouring the rest of the beer into the glass. Thereís only a small amount of lacing on the glass. The brew smells like bready malt, wheat and some cherries. The aroma seems to get stronger as the beer warms up some. Similar to the aroma, it tastes like wheat, bready malt, sweet/tart cherries and a bit of yeast. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, itís a bit slick with high carbonation. Once the carbonation settles down, itís a good drinkable brew. I wouldnít have any problem buying this again.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle. As others are noting, this had an explosive head - I poured 4/5 into a 12oz bulb glass and over half of it was head, I might have done a sloppy pour but it spilled all over my counter. Slightly hazy orange color. Soft, somewhat thick carbonation. Cherry aroma is there, but a bit too much apple aroma as well for my tastes. I might just not enjoy cherry in beverage form. Interesting, but I wasnít a fan of this beer that trolls you with excessive head.

Infected? HUGE head. Lots of carbonation. Very thin. Slight sour, tart flavor. Refreshing. Not really bad, but I didnít particularly care for it.
