3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle from Jolly Pumpin in Ann Arbor, MI. Pours a crystal clear, red-gold-amber colored body with an inch thick, dense and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is crisp wheats with some grain and a decent cherry note that is sweet, but lightly tart. Flavor has much more of a juicy cherry flavor. Somewhat sweet, slightly tart cherries up front with a crisp wheat, grain, a touch of bread, and a light herbal hopping. Finishes clean and lightly bitter with some crisp wheat, sweet and tart cherries, and grain. Medium length aftertaste following a medium-light, smooth, crisp body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a nice fruity wheat beer. The wheats are crisp and balance nicely with a mixture of sweet and somewhat tart cherries. This was very enjoyable.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very malty aroma, fizzy on the palate. The taste is very bold and sharp, there is a very large citrus punch and notes of cherries. Lots of fruit flavors not much else not really my thing.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle... medium copper with a bit of bright orange, a bit light tan head, good retention, if the body was crisper would be great... really light nose that gives off some sweet citrus notes with some wheat, subtle but nice... the taste is just off, stale wheat with applesauce and clove, and a touch of light cherry, just doesnít come together correctly

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.
