Can. Lactic cherry wheat malt and straw aroma. Cloudy dark amber with nice light tan head. Moderately sweet cherry, milk, toffee malt, and very lightly bitter straw flavor. Good body. Grew on me as I drank more.

Not excited for a cherry wheat, per se, but Bells has earned enough cred to give it a shot. Quite nice for what it is - a tart and fruity summer refresher than blends yeast aroma and flavor with tart and lightly sweet cherry quite well.

Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at home on one of the hottest days of the year. Appearance is a bright cherry hue with a rich white head, looks like fruit juice. Aroma is very faint, doesnt smell like much. Taste is pretty good, carbonated, light cherry tart, light Belgian yeast. Its decent

It pours hazy reddish with a large off white head. The aroma has bananas, berries, cherries, cream, wheat and Belgian Abbey yeast. It has a medium smooth body with very soft carbonation. The taste starts with smooth wheat, light caramel, creamed cherries and Abbey yeast. The finish has lots of hay. Interesting.

7/18/16. 12oz can from Craft on Draft. Light red pour under a nice tan head, great lacing. Belgian wheat base pops in the aroma, spice, Belgian yeast, soft wheat, grainy. Nice flavor, clean, Belgian yeast, slice, light cherry juice aspect, soft wheat. Would be good poolside, in fact.

Pretty good cherry wheat. Tastes like real cherry not too sweet, wheat aspects. Light. Wish I was poolside, really.

Can - Pale amber with pinkish hue. Cherry aroma, but a mixed tropical fruit hint, too. Cherry juice, pancakes, flowers, and hops. Smooth bitter finish.

Pours a hazy copper with a foamy white head. Aroma is cherries, clove, and spice. Flavor is sweet, but not too sweet, cherry, and some spice. Has lively carbonation and a light body. Pretty good.
