COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A solid American wheat, with a classic nose that transitions to a faint cherry aroma complimenting its rich amber gold hue. As this well-balanced and deceptively light-bodied wheat beer travels across the tongue, the willamette and perle hops hint at bitterness, followed by a crisp, clean wheat flavor that cuts to a subtle tart cherry finish. Asked to describe the flavor of Archangel, the most accurate response is: "it tastes like more.”

Reddish-orange color with white head. Fresh sweet-tart cherry aroma, faintly yeasty. Very Flavorful, cherry, sweet spices, grains, caramel. Medium with lots of refreshing carbonation, especially for a summer brew!

Reddish-orange pour with a small, short-lived, white head. Fresh sweet-tart cherry aroma with some faint yeasty esters, toffee and cereal grains. The flavor is a big burst of fresh cherries with some notes of pie spices, cereal grains, caramel and a mild spicy hop balance. Medium body with lots of carbonation.

tap at hopcat. this was labeled as a fruit beer there, and i could tell it is a pure wheat. pours cloudy orange with small white head. this beer was overly sweet, with little hints of cherry syrup. mostly artificial sweetener and wheat

I had high hopes for this one, but was let down. The color is darker than I would expect which much be the cherry juice. Too carbonated for my taste and has a dry character on the tail as it warms that I don’t care for. This is my first North Peak beer and it doesn’t make me want another.

On tap. Poured a cloudy orange with a medium near white head that dissipated slowly to the edges. Aroma had some tart and sweet cherries with a sweet wheat. Flavor was similar with sweet cherries and wheat in the beginning with a slight growing tart cherry undertone.

Pours distinctly orange-tinged amber. Nice full cream head. Nose isn’t promising; wheaty, yeasty hints with a bit of cherry but the smell itself isn’t really pleasant. Not bad, just meh. Medium mouthfeel, moderate carbonation, creamy, the flavor really makes up for the nose. Nice sweetness, little bitterness, super-pleasant, awesome summer beer. The cherry element complements the palate and doesn’t overwhelm it.
