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.”

Drake (11499) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - OCT 26, 2010
Bottle shared by MaltDawg at the 12th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering on 9/18/10. Thanks! Pours a slightly hazy golden amber color with a medium sized white head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of cherries, cocktail fruit salad (that nasty shit) and faint wheat notes. The taste is bread, cherries, caramel and a bitter hoppy finish. Medium bodied.

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.

hopscotch (10557) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 29, 2010
Draft… RBSG 2010… Clear amber ale with a small, creamy, white head. The aroma is a bit subdued, but the presence of cherry and spicy grains along with an undertone of warm mash and a trace of lactic acid is finally pulled from my glass. Medium to full-bodied with lively carbonation. Bittersweet, malty flavor with just a smidge of cherry. Finishes soothingly bitter.
