Just barely above a drain pour. The aroma is promising, but it is thin and reminded me of cherry cough syrup mixed with a Coors. It is not putrid if served very cold.

Pale amber colour.
Very cherry nose with tones of maraschino (italian cherry liquer).
Flavor with lots of cherry and wheat. Dry with slightly bitter finish. Totally whacky beer but in a good way.
I love it.

Bottled. Yellow-brown. Fizzy, artificial and thin. A complete failure.

This is a pretty good beer, but it doesn't seem to be very wheaty. It's light amber in color with a decent head. Finish is dry. all in all a good beer.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2004 A poor representation of a wheat beer. Where is the flavor? Not much grain or sweet taste. The aroma is cherry vanilla ice cream and bubblegum. The taste has a little cherry vanilla ice cream. I still detect a hint of vomit.

Big off-white head atop lightly hazed golden body. Aroma is Maraschino -- very sweet, hint of wheat. Taste is medium sweet cherry (not as sweet as the aroma suggests), some mild wheat backing. Finish has slight astringency. Light watery body with acidity in finish.

(Draught) I used to love this beer ten years ago. Since than my love of beer has matured and I now find this beer kind of candyish. It would be hard to go back to drinking this type of beer.

Had this most recently at Logan airport: Was served with a cherry floating in the bottom. Definitely has an unnatural medicinal cherry flavor to it. I used to really like this stuff, but since I've tried bigger and better beers, it's hard to go back.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Color is a hazy deep golden yellow with a thin off-white head that fades somewhat fast, lace is spotty. Aroma reminds me of watered down cherry flavored cough syrup, or maybe kool-aid, theres some wheat malts giving an overall sweetness in with the flat cherryness that seems artificial to me. A powerful nose as it warms but seems almost to much and a bit artificial. Taste is sweet malts of wheat, pale and soft, with a kick of cherry tart flavor thats a bit to sweet and again comes across somewhat artificial and syrupy. A little hard to get past the cherryness with a bubbly carbonation and lighter feel that nearly makes it champagne-like. As it warms it becomes alot easier to handle and makes for a nice drinker but I don't think I'd have alot of this before the flavor starts to get old.

Not a bad beer at all, but make sure you like cherries before drinking it. Very light graininess underneath the dominant cherry flavor. Hop bitterness is also very light. One of the sweetest beers I've had.
