2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle courtesy of Skyview. Copper color with no head. A little dusty wheat aroma. After a few sips, the cherry comes out, but it’s 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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Had this one bottled thanks to Dad! Dark yellow and cloudy pour topped with a bubbly white head. Dry, slightly sour nose. The taste is sharp, not overwhelmingly fruity, but acidic and almost medicinal. Tapers to a soft finish. This was not my favorite fruit beer, nor was it my favorite beer from this brewpub.

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
This is one of the worst beers I’ve tried. It has so much cherry in it it pours red and has no beer taste or aroma.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Orange amber color. Fluffy head with nice lacing. Very strong cherry aroma- but the taste is not as sweet as the smell would leave you to believe. In fact, there was a lot of bitterness at the end that gave it a medicine-y, cough drop flavor. Not sure I cared for this. I want my cherry wheats to be sweeter and more tart...

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft at the brewpub. The aroma was distinctly of black cherry soda. Poured a slightly medium orange color and was topped by a white head. Light bodied and slightly sweet with the flavor following the nose. Black cherry soda beer. Not offensive, but not a particularly outstanding beer, either.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
