COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A solid American wheat, with a classic nose that transitions to a faint cherry aroma complimenting its rich amber gold hue. As this well-balanced and deceptively light-bodied wheat beer travels across the tongue, the willamette and perle hops hint at bitterness, followed by a crisp, clean wheat flavor that cuts to a subtle tart cherry finish. Asked to describe the flavor of Archangel, the most accurate response is: "it tastes like more.

Cherry amber with a medium frothy tan topper. Aroma of German hops, cherry, malt, dough and wheat, nothing terrible strong. Taste of sour cherry, wheat and malt. Semi-tart with a peppery and slightly off-finish.

Bottle shared by MaltDawg at the 12th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering on 9/18/10. Thanks! Pours a slightly hazy golden amber color with a medium sized white head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of cherries, cocktail fruit salad (that nasty shit) and faint wheat notes. The taste is bread, cherries, caramel and a bitter hoppy finish. Medium bodied.

Pailhead (6529) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - OCT 19, 2010
Bottle: The aroma consists of musty cherry (lightly sweet and tart) along with some wheat. It pours a hazy (borderline cloudy) dark orange with a massive creamy beige head with excellent retention and lacing. The flavor start with citrus and a touch of wheat. The finish has lightly sweet and tart cherry along with hints of banana and spice. As it warms, the tart cherry notes in the finish increase, but a slight metallic flavor starts to creep in as well. Medium bodied with lively carbonation that is a bit prickly at times. Decent and refreshing, but the carbonation is little too high for my liking.

Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival. Cloudy amber, creamy head. Tart light cherry aroma. Mid sweet with light body. Dried out by cherry tartness. Spritzy with mild wheat cracker flavour. No bitterness. Fairly refreshing.

Very good beer. It is a nice alternative to Sam Adams Cheery Wheat, however it does lack its strong wheat characteristics. The cherry finish is nice and not to over powering.

From MaltDawg @ 12th Richmond Gathering: Cinnamon, wheat, and wood aroma. Cloudy amber, thick yellow head. Malty and bready with a tangy cherry finish. Decent, but limited wheat character.

MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 18, 2010
(Sample Date: 9/18/2010 Source:Other) Grainy with caramel and light fruitiness. Clear dark golden with moderate white head. Something like cherry with a light graininess in flavor along with a slight sour twang. Some spicy hops in the background. Finish is medium with a touch of peppery bitterness.

Butters (4049) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 18, 2010
Definitely fruity. Fake cherry juice from the del monte can. Very large carbonation. Dry, almost bretty finish, but no brett. Not my cup of tea, but not terrible.
