Not real impressive. The cherry taste imparted into the brew seems to give it a sort of cleaning solution quality.
It is drinkable, but not sure I’d want to go back for more

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A unique and tasty beer. The appearance is a rusty copper, topped with a craggy white head that falls into a smooth foam on top. The aroma is very acidic from the tart cherries with a little malt. The taste isn’t all that different from the nose, a smooth sweet malt topped with a sharp acidic tasty, like a strong lemonade, The aftertaste is very strong on the tart cherry. It’s a very good beer.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2009 12oz bottle-An amber body with a nice head. Aroma of slight cherry with a little malt. Taste of the same but I felt a little lacking in the cherry aspect. Not bad but could be better.

Tarnished copper appearance. Some good cherries in here. Very thick and syrupy. Nutty, oat, walnut, cherry flavor. Medium finish.

Golden color with some reddishness in there . Aroma is dominated by tart cherries with some light malt. Flavor is wheaty, light, and endowed with only a bit of cherry. Not all that good.

Thanks to skyview for this pour. Reddish gold with small white head. Hints of cherry on the nose with wheat. You really have to search for the cherry, but it is there, along with wheat. Body is very light, finish is clean.

Thanks to skyview. Nice tart nose but the body disappointed. Wheat body with the faintest hint of tart cherry.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Shared by Skyview. I really wanted to enjoy this, but it is just too light. Light cherry aroma and a gold colored beer. A very light, but flawless cherry flavor. They have the right idea but like the other three beers I tried, they seem to be afraid of flavor.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The Shipwrecked brewpub was closed for the season. Luckily I could purchase a six-pack at Main Street Market in Egg Harbor, WI. Brought back to Minnesota and shared with the Twin Cities team. Pours a hazy golden yellow brew with a thin white head and thin lacing. Aroma is white wheat, roasted grain, and Door Country tart cherries. Flavor is wheat with a hint of tart cherries. Palate has a nice mix of sweet to the tongue and a dry finish. I would agree this is one of Shipwrecked’s best brews.
