2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
This one isn’t good. It reminds me of the cherry from a cherry Coke Zero and Corn Pops. Which is odd, almost adjuncty.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
DATE REVIEWED: June 13, 2014... GLASSWARE: Lindemans flute... OCCASION: post-baseball banquet unwinding...APPEARANCE: hazy, cloudy off-yellow body; slight effervescence; nice, thick, somewhat rocky snow white head; reasonable, patterned lacing... AROMA: tart punch of cherries, yes--slightly malty, bready scents underscore the equally understated hops--but mostly, cherries... PALATE: medium-bodied, fizzy, carbonated--not as refreshing as expected, but more body too... TASTE: malt profile disrupts the cherry prominence, as does the honey which forms a funky, unsettled finish...some cardboard notes further damn the experience... OVERALLL: things were going well for this wheat--which is much better than Sam’s cherry lambic--until I actually tasted it: a medicinal introduction, a drag of an aftertaste, and not really much to savor in between...and isn’t taste just about everything?

12 oz bottle from a friend The beer poured a cloudy amber with a white frothy head and lacing. The aroma of cherries with bread greets you. the medium body beer has light carbonation. This is just not my type of beer. The taste of cherries is present with sweet after tones. The finish was sweet with cherries in the aftertaste.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Transfer from BA review on 5-6-12-
Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a golden color with a two finger white head. The head fades over a few minutes to give a medium amount of lacing.
Smell – Sweet cherries aromas are big and bold. They are matched with a nice bready and sugary smell which well al combined create an enjoyable cherry bread aroma.
Taste – It begins with a sweeter bready and malty flavor. This malty flavor has hints of darker frits which develop more and more as the taste advances. In the beginning there is some cherry, raisin, and plum. As the taste advances the cherry strengths at the expense f the other fruit flavors and is accompanied by a lighter brown sugar taste. At the end the big cherry with the still very present bready base leaves a clean cherry bread taste on the tongue. It a very linger and delicious end.
Mouthfeel – A slightly higher than average body thickness with a medium level of carbonation. The average carbonation is perfect as it makes it a very refreshing brew, while the body really allows those nice flavors to sit on the tongue and soak in.
Overall – With great flavor, aroma, mouthfeel and price this is one of the best fruit beers out there. It is a great balance between malt and fruit making this one fantastic and great drinking brew.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle from a Wegman’s in Buffalo, NY. A hazy orange pour with a thin white head; aroma of ground almonds; cherry bakewell tart aroma - that’s ground almonds and sweet cherries; and a sweet cherry finish. DRinkable, but not what I was expecting.

Not gonna lie, I scarfed a six’er of this tart while demolishing a whole rotisserie chicken and it was excellent. I don’t think this beer is award winning but it ain’t too shabby for what it claims to be. Hazy light amber with rouge hues and a frisky white head. Tart cherries and wheat tickle the sniffer. Wood, vanilla, lemon wheat and cherries dance on the tongue. A lively carbonation and balanced taste make it highly drinkable and a great aid to washing down depressing chicken dinners all alone.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle from Evergreen Discount, best by 9/14, 5.3%. Orange and pretty clear appearance with a minimal beige head, quickly diminishing. Pleasant aroma of fresh cherries, pie crust, light malts, light honey and a touch of hops. Flavor is cherries, fruity, mild sweetness, light bitterness. Light body, crisp, somewhat, amply carbonated and easy to drink. Great aroma.
