COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pooltime Ale is a refreshing Belgian-inspired Wheat Ale with light clove notes. The truly distinguishing feature is the use of 100% Montmorency tart cherries grown in the Traverse City region of Michigan. These cherries add a subtle tartness and bright counterpoint to the other flavors, enhancing Pooltime’s fruity character and making it the perfect beer for all summer activities.

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.

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.

ChainGangGuy (4894) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JUL 12, 2016
Appearance: Pours a cloudy, cherry-tinged body with a smallish, stray, white head. Smell: Wheat and lightly tart, lightly sweet-scented cherries with underlying hints of clove, banana. Taste: Creamy wheat taste with a moderate sweetness appended. A light touch of gum with a bit of a harder hit of peppery, clove-like accents. Some cherry fruitiness but also some orchard fruit juices. Drying, fruity finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-light carbonation. Overall: Decent.

This stuff is okay in my book. It is kind of what all those brewpub fruit wheats should taste like. The cherry is natural and the beer itself a bit spicy to compliment. It’s full bodied w/ low carbonation and a bit of acidity for some bite. This is a cherry beer that tastes like cherries and beer. That is what you want.
