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

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.

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.

Pours cloudy gold. Aroma is cherries, and malt. Flavors are cherries and wheat. Light body. Interesting, but nothing really special here. Thanks to robertsreality for this bottle.

A Gold/Yellow Lantern Glow with a White Ring. Subtle Cherry Aroma. Intial Cherry Flavor...Subtle But You Know They Brewed With Fresh Cherries....Crispy Dryness At the End....Wheat Comes Out Towards the End. I Expected it to Be Potent Cherry Flavored When Instead its a Wonderfully Balanced Fruit Beer. Very Solid Brew.

Shipwrecked is a fine place to visit for a good meal and great beer. I’ve sampled 3 or 4 of their house beers, but the Cherry Wheat was the best by far. It was a nice golden amber color with thin white lacings on the head. The aroma was dominated by semi-tart Door County cherries. There was also the aroma of a well-balanced wheat beer, grainy and malty. The taste was outstanding, especially for a wheat beer. I usually find wheat beers to be very thin and watery and leave me with quite a headache, no matter how much I consume. This one was very refreshing and smooth. The cherry flavor was perfectly balanced, not too sour and not too sweet. A perfect complement to Shipwrecked’s great burger selection.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Smells of sour cherries and wheat with a hint of yeast. Light amber body was mildly carbonated. Picked up a light cherry taste, subtle hoppiness, wheat. Finished smoothly with a taste of cherries. A light lingering aftertaste of honeycrisp apples. Not bad, but compared a certain other fruit beer made from Door County cherries, it falls far short.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweet cherries and wheat were very full in the aroma... very refreshing! Appearance was a clear rosy/amber with a light off-white head. Light-bodied and crisp on the palate. Flavor was sweet and tart cherries with a strong wheat backbone. Tart and dry cherry finish. Certainly one of the better fruit beers that I have tried.

This is what a cherry beer should be. Good full cherry aroma, hint of cherries in the taste, with malt steadily coming through, and a good dry hop finish. No sweet cherry syrup thing going on to gross you out here. Very drinkable in whatever quantity you desire.

The best beer I tried at this establishment. Nice rocky white head that lingered and left a nice lace. Slight aroma of cherries. Light amber in color with slight reddish hue. Up front flavor of cherries that was quickly washed by a sharp dryness. No hint of cherry or wheat in the finish. Quite drinkable for a fruit beer.
