Draft. Pours clear reddish brown with almost no head. Tastes light light cherry, slightly dry, not very sweet. Wheat and malt feel. Light/medium body and carbonation. Smells of fermenting cherries.

Very light and refreshing. Pours almost red with a thin head. Aroma is cherries. flavor is tart with a hint of cherries, more subtle than the aroma would indicate. Crisp and clean finish. Great for those hot days.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

I just don’t taste the cherries. It says that cherries are in there, but where the hell are they. I didn’t notice cherries in the nose or the flavor. It did appear reddish/pink but where the hell are the cherries?

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.

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.

Ein kirschrotes Bier mit zartem Duft nach Hibiskus und Hagebutte. Geschmack säuerlich und erfrischend mit Hagebutte, Kirsch und Himbeere.
