Pours clear golden with an off-white head. The aroma has light cherry, smooth wheat, lightly toasted maltiness and light spice. It has a medium smooth body with good amount of carbonation. The flavor starts with a medicinal / astringent taste that seems to happen with some fruit beers. The there is a mild toasted malt taste, hints of caramel and phenolic spice. The finish has a bit of a cough syrup taste. This one didn’t do much for me. egreener (11) - Petersburg, Michigan, USA - MAR 17, 2014
On sale at Anderson’s market. Love the bottle shape. Pretty rosy copper color with a creamy head that leaves decent lacing. Floral, wheaty scent. Couldn’t really taste the cherry. A little bland too. wmubronco1992 (709) - Coldwater, Michigan, USA - OCT 6, 2013
Bottle. Pours a mildly cloudy off yellow. Small white head. Didn’t get much aroma. Taste is typical wheat, with a touch of bitterness that is probably the cherry, but not really identifiable. Not terrible, but not one of the better wheat’s that I’ve had. CardsPackHawks (173) - South Elgin, Illinois, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Picked a bottle up while on vacation in northern Michigan. A very enjoyable wheat. There is a very slight hint of cherry. I was expecting more, hence a little disappointment. Still, pretty good. shigadeyo (3739) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 2, 2013

8/08/2011: North Peak Archangel Summer Wheat (made with Michigan cherry juice)... Aroma: Cherry almond; toasty wheat malt; slightly floral. Appearance: Coppery gold color with a frothy off-white head; there is a slight chill haze to the complextion; bubbly crown remains. Flavor: Yeasty apple with some cherry tartness; musty wheat malt; cherry is definitely there, but is nicely reserved and therefore doesn’t dominate. Palate: Medium-light to medium body; lightly bubbly. Overall: Well-balanced and refreshing; this beer actually comes across tasting like a wheat beer with some cherry flavor, not like an cherry cough-syrup bomb like the Samuel Adams Cherry Wheat).
11.5 fl. oz. bottle (MAY 1211) from The Andersons General Store in Toledo, Ohio. Rating #53 for this beer.
bottle. Strange coppery color with small head. Wheat ale with a bit of a strange flavor that I guess is the cherries. I certainly wouldn’t have guessed it to be cherries. Not bad, but not really my thing. kaser (6312) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 26, 2013

Bottle. Heavy hay aroma. Clear light gold color. Not a great feel in mouth. Pretty astringent. Not a fan. Mittenator (1612) - Michigan, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Bottle. Hay yellow and almost no head. Cherry, hay and skunk. Sweet and very wheaty. Ehh. joshwoodward (575) - - JUN 6, 2013
On tap at Jolly Pumpkin in Ann Arbor. Clean, refreshing, light, slightly wheaty. Nice.
