This is a great wheat beer with a fine cherry base. While I am unable to handle a whole case of this beer, a six pack is a perfect treat!

The appearance of this beer combines a large pillowy white head with a hazy amber color, and the aroma is strongly cherries with a hint of wheat. The taste is slightly sweet and slightly sour, and the palate combines a medium body, average carbonation, slick texture, and an abrupt finish.

Slightly hazy yellow with a small white head.
Nose is loaded with Amaretto, marzipan, cherry stone and some artificial cherry popsicle.
Flavors of sweet red fruits, cherry pit, some wheat tang and lo bitterness.
Light bodied, refreshing and quite cool.

Fruity aroma (obviously), sweet with some cherry flavor, but the cherry isnít overpowering and you can still taste the beer behind it. Very smooth finish, only knock against it is that itís a bit heavy (as most Samís tend to be), this isnít the best beer to be drinking out in the hot sun. Still, if youíre sitting in a air-conditioned room I canít think of a better beer on the market right now.

Not always big on the fruit styles but Iíve had some I like, this one seems to generate strong opinions one way or the other. It is notable i had Founderís Cherise once to compare with this. Not red, but a regular pale amber like any pale ale. Fizzy with a white head quick to dissipate, making the pouring characteristics more like a pilsner. Smells like somebody poured maraschino cherry syrup into a lager. Smell also kind of obviously reminds me of Shirley temples and mostly this just tasteís like a very weak Shirley temple. Has pilsner like body and texture as in super light and bubbly. So really just that weak cherry taste in a light bubbly carbonated beer that doesnít taste much like beer. Not awful but I feel no need to revist

Bottle. Very apparent cherry taste up front with some mild wheat flavors. There was some complexity to this beer as it worked through a few different notes. The fruit flavor was much stronger than most other fruit beers. This was very good on a hot summer day.

I wasnít expecting much based on some of the bad reviews, but this is pretty drinkable. Pleasant cherry aroma and nice creamy palate. Sweet with some bitterness. A but if a funky finish, but good overall.

Pours amber, with little head. Nose was of wheat and cherry syrup. The cherry flavor was more artificial like a snow cone, overly sweet and a tad bitter. The wheat flavored were a bit hidden but noticeable. The finish was a bit funky kind of like I rinsed the beer through a dirty sock.

The red headed step child of BCBS Cherry Rye. If you like cherry soda...youíre probably too young to drink this, but youíll like it. The bartender out cherries in the bottom of my glass. Without asking. I still ate them afterwards. Those were pretty good. Iíd give them a 3.
