2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Brewed for MacGregors due to Sam Adams’ rising cost of their cherry wheat. Fruit beers are not my favorite, so I am not the best person to rate this. Tastes like Cherry Wheat to me. It is Southern Tiers first fruit beer, so I give them credit for a decent first try.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Had on tap at Chili McGregor’s. Only a very small white head on this one. Nice aroma of cherries. Broke a ’Man Law’ with a fruited beer. It had nice cherry wheat flavor and went down fast. Good beer to start with when you are really thirsty.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Had on tap at Chili McGregor’s. Very high aroma of cherries (served with a cherry too - don’t fruit the beer...) Palate of cherries otherwise very light. Pale color.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
On Tap at MacGregor’s in Henrietta. Super light yellow color. One or two shades away from water. There is a head, but I attribute that to the tap more than the beer. The aroma and flavor are very much like cherry cough syrup or a cough drop. The body is exceptionally light and the cherry flavor is really the only thing going on. Very weak and sad excuse for a beer, but I’m sure that is what MacGregor’s asked for.
