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.

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.

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 Iíd 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 isnít 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. Itís 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.

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.

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.
