3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A refreshing change, this beer is best enjoyed last to clear the palate. The essence of maraschino cherry is the best description of the cherry flavor.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a clear copper color with a small white head. The aroma is a mix of cherry Coke and cough syrup. Medium bodied with medium carbonation, the flavor is dominated by cherries and cherry syrup. No hint of wheat flavors and maybe just a tad bit of malt shows up in the finish. It is actually somewhat refreshing, but it reminds me too much of flat cherry Coke. I'm glad I only bought a single, because I couldn't drink more than one of these. This is your beer if you love cherries.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Has a clouded orangeish color with moderate carbonation and a cherry smell. Taste is also of cherries that reminds me of cough syrup and it finishes much the same way as the syrup. Overall iif you like cherries then this is for you, but I do not like cherries all that much and I like cough syrup even less so this beer will not be visiting my gut anytime soon.

Nice pour. The cherry aroma hits you immediately. Good color but a bit cloudy. I really like this but I couldn't drink it all night. A nice novelty or special occasion beer.

Just tastes like a decent beer with cherry syrup in it to me. I guess it is okay occasionally, but I seriously doubt I like it enough to invest in another 6-pack of it.

A fair effort, though the "wheat" of this beer is not at all apparent.

I enjoyed this beer although I could not drink it all the time. You can really taste the cherry flavor.

I am not a fan of sweet beers, and this is a sweet beer. Much like a sweet wine they taste like cherry syrup that leaves a clinging sicking aftertaste that you can not get rid of, even from brushing your teeth. Always take the dry version of the wine and the regular version of the beer.

For what it tries to be I guess it's okay, but it has way to much cherry taste. It's as though a spoonful of cherry syrup was stirred into each bottle.

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2007 Too much cherry for me. Sweet and syrupy. Makes me think "cherry cough syrup cooler"
