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.

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.

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.

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.

TAP: Ruby red pour. Musty cherry nose. Wheat and cherry on taste, not overpowering, and not overly tart. Very enjoyable brew.

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

A dark reddish brown transparent color. The cherry in the aroma is subtle. The cherry is also in the taste, more like a slightly over ripe cherry.
