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.”

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.

Bottle. Hay yellow and almost no head. Cherry, hay and skunk. Sweet and very wheaty. Ehh.

Bottle. Heavy hay aroma. Clear light gold color. Not a great feel in mouth. Pretty astringent. Not a fan.

Bottle courtesy of MaltDawg at the 12th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering on 09/18/2010. Clear copper body with a large creamy off-white head. Sweet fruit and light wheat aroma. Slightly tart fruit flavor, some cherry notes, with a wheat background. Medium light body with moderate carbonation.

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.

b3shine (4447) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 21, 2012
Bottle to pint. Looks thin and transparent for a craft wheat beer. Smells decent; cherry and wheat. Tastes a little over the top on the cherry. Mouthfeel is average (at best). Not my thing.

wmubronco1992 (589) - Coldwater, Michigan, USA - OCT 6, 2013
Bottle. Pours a mildly cloudy off yellow. Small white head. Didn’t get much aroma. Taste is typical wheat, with a touch of bitterness that is probably the cherry, but not really identifiable. Not terrible, but not one of the better wheat’s that I’ve had.

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

(Sample Date: 9/18/2010 Source:Other) Grainy with caramel and light fruitiness. Clear dark golden with moderate white head. Something like cherry with a light graininess in flavor along with a slight sour twang. Some spicy hops in the background. Finish is medium with a touch of peppery bitterness.

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 wasn’t a fan of this beer that trolls you with excessive head.
