Pailhead (6543) - Rochester Hills, 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. esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 13, 2010
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. Svesse (8694) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - FEB 6, 2011
(Bottle, Oliver Twist, Stockholm) Amber colour, cloudy with sediment. Frothy white head. Fruity, tart nose with citrus, sour cherries and lemon. Fruity, sourish taste with notes of citrus, cherries, wheat biscuits and a slightly citric bitterness in the finish. Medium body, rather dry and slightly tart. Interesting and definitely drinkable. strongpieman (1651) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - JUN 5, 2011
Bottle. Amber, clear, large but thin foamy head -- lots of carbonation. Tart cherry aroma with wheat. Taste is a little sour. Palate is light to medium with the carbonation. Overall decent but the palate takes away -- may be something with this bottle? demitriustown (1192) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - AUG 1, 2011
11.5 oz bottle: Aroma has got a nice wheat texture to it, lightly fruity, yeast, and a bit of a grainy note. Appearance is a clear golden amber with a medium to large head that diminishes quickly. Taste has got some fruitiness to it, wheat, and yeast. Palate is somewhat tart on the aftertaste. Going down it’s medium to low carbonation. Mouthfeel is sticky and medium bodied. Overall, a run of the mill craft beer good but not great. Cheers!

Poured from 12oz bottle at home. Orange and cloudy pour. White bubbly head. Fruity aroma. Taste of banana pineapple hops and slightly bitter. Good EtTuCthulhu (1391) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - MAY 8, 2015
The beer pours a slightly hazy orange color with a small white head that fades quickly to a ring and film atop the liquid, and the aroma blends wheat, doughy yeast, and a hint of cherry sweetness (though I may not have picked it up if I wasn’t looking for it). The taste is slightly sour and slightly sweet with a wheat-forward aftertaste, and the cherry tartness is only a small part of the overall flavor. The palate fuses a thick texture, medium body, and a soft carbonation. Mark_Eck (1998) - - JUN 19, 2016
Notes from summer. Pours a hazy orangish color. Aroma and taste are wheat and some tart cherry. RobertDale (6660) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - SEP 13, 2016
Sample at KC Beerfest 2016. Comes a mostly clear golden orange with an average white head. Aroma of fruit and grain. Taste is wheat and some tart cherries. Decent. jgb9348 (6399) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 25, 2011
Clear pink coloured body with a dense, thick, HUGE pale pink head and tons of bubbles coming from everywhere. Aroma of sour cherries, metal, malt, wheat and a touch of light grain. Light-bodied; Very mild wheat and yeast flavour with a pungent kick of metallic notes and a very bitter cherry juice taste. Aftertaste is strong and potent - a lot of bitter tastes throughout with some cherry sweetness and tastes and a long bittering metallic note. Overall, an interesting beer - not much wheat going here, but the cherry notes are noticeable, but not so much in a good way. I sampled this twelve ounce stubby bottle purchased from Merchant’s in Dearborn, Michigan on 30-July-2010 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 25-January-2011.
