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.

12 ounce bottle, bottled on June 16th, 2011. Served in a Leinenkugels Sunset Wheat glass, the beer pours a hazy golden/orange color with a huge off-white head. I couldnt fit the whole bottle into the glass because the head was so big, I had to wait for the head to settle down some to finish before pouring the rest of the beer into the glass. Theres only a small amount of lacing on the glass. The brew smells like bready malt, wheat and some cherries. The aroma seems to get stronger as the beer warms up some. Similar to the aroma, it tastes like wheat, bready malt, sweet/tart cherries and a bit of yeast. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, its a bit slick with high carbonation. Once the carbonation settles down, its a good drinkable brew. I wouldnt have any problem buying this again.

12oz bottle from Jolly Pumpin in Ann Arbor, MI. Pours a crystal clear, red-gold-amber colored body with an inch thick, dense and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is crisp wheats with some grain and a decent cherry note that is sweet, but lightly tart. Flavor has much more of a juicy cherry flavor. Somewhat sweet, slightly tart cherries up front with a crisp wheat, grain, a touch of bread, and a light herbal hopping. Finishes clean and lightly bitter with some crisp wheat, sweet and tart cherries, and grain. Medium length aftertaste following a medium-light, smooth, crisp body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a nice fruity wheat beer. The wheats are crisp and balance nicely with a mixture of sweet and somewhat tart cherries. This was very enjoyable.

hopscotch (10983) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 29, 2010
Draft RBSG 2010 Clear amber ale with a small, creamy, white head. The aroma is a bit subdued, but the presence of cherry and spicy grains along with an undertone of warm mash and a trace of lactic acid is finally pulled from my glass. Medium to full-bodied with lively carbonation. Bittersweet, malty flavor with just a smidge of cherry. Finishes soothingly bitter.

Nephilium (1781) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUN 8, 2011
This beer starts with an aroma of light wheat, tartness, and a hint of cherry. It pours an amber with a touch of red, and a gigantic white head. Theres a visible cascade of carbonation in the glass. The cherry flavor is subdued, and comes across more as a tartness. Fairly full mouthfeel for a summer beer, but not bad.

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.

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.
