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.”

Dogbrick (8680) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 8, 2011
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.

shigadeyo (3078) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - AUG 2, 2013

8/08/2011: North Peak Archangel Summer Wheat (made with Michigan cherry juice)... Aroma: Cherry almond; toasty wheat malt; slightly floral. Appearance: Coppery gold color with a frothy off-white head; there is a slight chill haze to the complextion; bubbly crown remains. Flavor: Yeasty apple with some cherry tartness; musty wheat malt; cherry is definitely there, but is nicely reserved and therefore doesn’t dominate. Palate: Medium-light to medium body; lightly bubbly. Overall: Well-balanced and refreshing; this beer actually comes across tasting like a wheat beer with some cherry flavor, not like an cherry cough-syrup bomb like the Samuel Adams Cherry Wheat).

11.5 fl. oz. bottle (MAY 1211) from The Andersons General Store in Toledo, Ohio. Rating #53 for this beer.

MrBunn (2508) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle. Hazy gold stuff with a small head and kind of an apple juice (guess I can buy cherry though) nose. Flavor is light wheat beer with a pretty heavy fruit presence.

Pailhead (5073) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - OCT 19, 2010
Bottle: The aroma consists of musty cherry (lightly sweet and tart) along with some wheat. It pours a hazy (borderline cloudy) dark orange with a massive creamy beige head with excellent retention and lacing. The flavor start with citrus and a touch of wheat. The finish has lightly sweet and tart cherry along with hints of banana and spice. As it warms, the tart cherry notes in the finish increase, but a slight metallic flavor starts to creep in as well. Medium bodied with lively carbonation that is a bit prickly at times. Decent and refreshing, but the carbonation is little too high for my liking.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 13, 2010
Cherry amber with a medium frothy tan topper. Aroma of German hops, cherry, malt, dough and wheat, nothing terrible strong. Taste of sour cherry, wheat and malt. Semi-tart with a peppery and slightly off-finish.

Miksu (4972) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - DEC 31, 2010
Bottled at Stockholm Beer and Whisky Festival 2010. Hazy amber color. Sweet and tart with strawberry, cherry, rhubarb, acetic acid and toffee. Tastes like tarness and sourness has not yet matured and integrated.

Svesse (6296) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - FEB 6, 2011
(Bottle, Oliver Twist, Stockholm) Amber colour, cloudy with sediment. Frothy white head. Fruity, tart nose with citrus, sour cherries and lemon. Fruity, sourish taste with notes of citrus, cherries, wheat biscuits and a slightly citric bitterness in the finish. Medium body, rather dry and slightly tart. Interesting and definitely drinkable.

strongpieman (1539) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - JUN 5, 2011
Bottle. Amber, clear, large but thin foamy head -- lots of carbonation. Tart cherry aroma with wheat. Taste is a little sour. Palate is light to medium with the carbonation. Overall decent but the palate takes away -- may be something with this bottle?

demitriustown (1090) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - AUG 1, 2011
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 it’s medium to low carbonation. Mouthfeel is sticky and medium bodied. Overall, a run of the mill craft beer good but not great. Cheers!

Poured from 12oz bottle at home. Orange and cloudy pour. White bubbly head. Fruity aroma. Taste of banana pineapple hops and slightly bitter. Good
