One of the four Hinterland offerings served on tap at this year’s 25th annual GTOM in Madison, WI.. Dispensed to my fest glass with a hazed, orange/amber hue, decent, off white foam to the head, and wavey cling to the lacing. The aroma was light grain and bright, cherry tartness, which proceeded to the flavor with no astringency, but rather an altogether refreshing crispness. A very quaffable Fruit Beer, Joe!

Pint Bottle poured a hazy orange amber with a lingeing ring of amber foam. Aromas of bread, pie cherries, light yeast and light spice. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of pie cherries, bread, light yeast and light spice with a crisp lingering cherry pie finish. jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 21, 2013
Pours a cloudy gold with a good sized white head mostly lasting. Nose is cherries. Fairly creamy but not very well carbonated. Taste is pleasant, mostly slightly sour cherries, wheat, very light hops flavor with no bitterness. A pleasant summer sipping beer that pairs well with turkey deli sandwiches and chips.

Lightly hazed orange amber color with a moderate, fairly dense, beige head that does seem to have a lightly pink hue. Sweet and lightly acidic in the nose, with bits of wheat and cherry. More a wheat ale scent for me. Definitely Door County cherries in the flavors. Tart cherry pie comes to mind. I like it for the flavor of the cherries more than any wheat beer characters. If you like Door County cherries, you should enjoy this one. 2/10 17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 9, 2010
Pint bottle. Pours a light glowing clear pink biscuit color with a fine frothy sticky white head. Aroma is very cracker-like, huge wheat, a bit stinky, grains, light grass, just a hint of vegetable, medium cherry note, some other stuff I can’t quite place right now, starting to get a nicer cherry pie note now, the stinky hops against the cherry really throw me. Certainly an odd cherry beer, the bitterness can throw it off quite a bit, but nice cherry flavor that is quite balanced, the attenuation is near perfect, not too dry to be soda-poppy against the carbonation, but just sweet enough, I suppose it is off-dry and very drinkable, nice cherry pie flavor, floral hops, the hops in the finish add a winey and bitter touch that is unique, really nice moderation in flavors that have been done to death but in the wrong way with other breweries. Med/light bodied, softer spread-out carbonation that has just enough pop, smooth, refreshing. Cool beer, reaching for somewhere to give it more points.

Pint size bottle, purchased @ Bert’s Better Beers, Hooskett, NH. Light carbonation, with small white head. No lace. Nose of wheat and light cherry. Taste is malty with a very subtle tart cherry finish. A hint of what you would taste in cherry pie. Lighter in body and very drinkable. Good for a wheat based fruit beer. Simple and straight-forward. ryanfolty (2585) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - DEC 15, 2011

From notes. First reviewed 2/11/2011. Poured from a 16 oz. bottle into a pint glass.
Door County Cherry Wheat pours a slightly cloudy golden tangerine color. Actually, I am surprised at how clear it looks. A big frothy 4 cm off-white head gushes out of the bottle, but fading to a more manageable size by my first sip. Some bubbly lace sticks on the glass.
The aroma is fairly typical for a wheat beer - wheat, light malt, soft undefined sweetness, but the real kicker is the cherry. Tart and fresh, this is one of the strong points of this beer.
Light wheat starts out the flavor, but the focus here is on the generous addition of tart cherries. The flavor flirts dangerously with a medicinal cliff but avoid careening off of it. The finish is slightly tart and light.
Wheat beers are light and easy to drink with an unrefined graininess, and this no exception. There is a slight puckering at the end of the sip and a little bit of syrupy residue left behind after it’s all over.
The tart cherry gives this wheat beer a slightly medicinal flavor, but given how tough some of these fruit-infused beers are to drink, I will give it the benefit of the doubt. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 26, 2013
16oz bottle. Large beige head atop dark amber body. Aroma is moderately sweet, cherry, some sour, light orange. Taste is moderately sweet, cherry, some wheat, light sour. Soft light-medium body. tkline3 (16) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2013
16oz bottle to a frozen mug at Gibraltar Grill in Door County where the cherries are from. Pours a translucent sparkling rosy amber with a white head that quickly dissipates to lacing that lasts somewhat longer. Scent of sour cherries. Very nice full mouth feel, unlike some summer wheats that taste watered down. Nice balance of wheat, malt and slight sour cherries. Very nice and refreshing on a warm summer evening.
