2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled at Maxís American Beer Fest. Pours a transparent ruby red with a whispy head. Musty aroma, slight fruit. Flavor tastes like cherry extract, slightly metallic, buttery with some sweet tarts. Buttery on the tongue, medium bodied. This wasnít great.

12oz pours medium ruby color with an aggressive carbonation. Sweet aroma and body but no discernible cherry. Medium body with alot of caramel. Drying effect at the swallow. Not bad.

Served somewhat warm, though I don?t know if that was the intention. Beautiful reddish brown. Very cherry but it was more mellow than most. A solid beer.

Amazing Cherry beer. Has a wonderful reddish color with a nice cherry aroma. Very smooth, some foamy head, cherry flavor was balanced just right, not artificial(like Cherry Wheat) or overpowering, and had a nice sweetness that lingered on the tongue. Excellent beer!

Reminds me a bit of New Glarus Red (which is AWESOME) As stated by guzzler, definite styling of a Belgian Kriek, but more taste and palate of a very good Cherry Wheat. Crisp, slightly tart, dry, and refreshing. A good summer beer without a doubt. PS - 300 lbs of Michigan cherries were used in the brewing process. You can certainly tell. That's a good thing! :-) Enjoy.

Styled somewhat like a Belgian kriek, however there was more emphasis on the wheat and less (it seemed) on the yeast strain. As the name would imply, there was plenty of cherries in the nose and in the taste. Reddish, copper appearance. Nicely balanced. Smoothe finish.

Very fruity aroma, the cherries are very overpowering, didnít keep much of a head, very crisp & clean
