Transparent copper color with a very thin white head. Sour aroma with mild flavors of wheat and cherry and a slightly tart finish. Not recommended.

nuplastikk (5570) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 7, 2010
12oz bottle. Why add artificial color? Filtered pink-tan color, a touch of Haze. Minimal, though still present and lasting, head. Sugary cherry aroma, not overly assertive, but hard to mistake. Itís not bad by any means, but very standard, lacking zest. It is more beer-centric than most fruit beers, with some toasty malt tones shining through the mellow, black cherry taste. There is some mild, pit bitterness in the aftertaste that you get after a few sips, which I would think would be hard to appreciate or recognize from a small sample. Pretty decent offering, but blown away by the world of Kriek.

1FastSTi (3359) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 18, 2009
Pours to a clear copper body with a thin white head. The aroma is fresh cherry pie and cherry juice. Realistic cherry aroma. The flavor is cherry up front thatís subtle with a back end toasty malt thatís not. The palate is medium light bodied with an average texture.

JPDIPSO (5312) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 9, 2009
Dark amber to copper color.Somewhat fizzy light beige, with a hint of pink color. Cherry candy, almond, biscuit and wood in the aromas. Light dark cherry and wood malt flavors. The almond and wood flavors dry things out and have a mild astringency. I agree with the unique part of the deScription. Sweet in the start dry in the finish. Leaves me wanting something else.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - AUG 3, 2009
12 oz. bottle, thanks to the lady in my life: This poured a clear, deep golden body with a suggestioon of a pink tint. The creamy white head quickly devolved into a ring around the glass. The aroma was fresh red, sweet cheeries (which I like, as opposed to the dreaded blueberries, which I donít) with a touch of grain. That pretty well describes the flavor, too, except that thereís a slight off-ish bitterness that seems out of place. Okay, I sípose.

TheAlum (6812) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 19, 2009
12 oz bottle courtesy of my girlfriendís brotherís trip to Door County. Pours a golden light amber, pretty much transparent, moderate bright white head that dies to a small layer, laces some. Aromas are a bit of wheaty graininess, tart cherries, bit of tannin like bitterness, cereal. Pretty nice. Initial is grainy, flaked wheat, bit of dust, tart cherries, cereal and cheerios. Bitter on the finish, grainy wheat body. Mellow, cherries take over which are decidedly natural Door County cherries. A little underwhelming, but a decent fruit beer. Strength is the natural tart feel of the cherries.

RSRIZZO (1931) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 18, 2009
(Bottle courtesy of Headbanger) - Color is a golden brown with a slight haze. Carbonation is very good with a nice white head. Aroma is cider like with a hint of cherry in the back. Taste is light and crisp. Starting with a light body it goes down with a crisp feel. Finish is light with a creamy wheat like taste a a hint of tart. Thereís a slight metallic in the after taste with just a hint of cherry. Overall its an easy drinking wheat but is lacking a bit on flavor.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 11, 2009
On tap 9/1/08: Pours a transparent copper amber with a spotty-lacing white head. Aroma of fresh fruity cherries and some mild grainy toasty pale malt. Body starts with average fullness and clean fruity cherry flavor and light tartness before a drier finish. Needs more sweet maltiness and balance the fruit character.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - MAY 29, 2009
12 oz bottle from Headbanger - thanks! Hazed light amber with a white head. Toasty wheat nose with a solid tart cherry tone. Medium bodied with prickly carbonation. Nice wheaty flavor with a good pop of cherry - mildly tart, and it tastes like some pits were included (not a bad thing, just trying to describe the flavor). Finishes reasonably clean, leaving a mild tart cherry to linger. Refreshing and fairly tasty.

badgerben (4763) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAR 15, 2009
Bottle courtesy of Skyview. Copper color with no head. A little dusty wheat aroma. After a few sips, the cherry comes out, but itís pretty subtle. On the sour side of the cherry slide. Kind of an earthy, dark fruit undertone. A little more wheat. Easily drinkable, though not as full-flavored as I was hoping for.
