On tap at Riverside Brewpub. Filtered amber with a thin off-white head. Aroma of cherry, wheat and malt. Taste of cherries, mildly burnt malt and moderate sweetness. Somewhat tart with a burnt aftertaste. Not sure about this batch. arkurzynski (2460) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 29, 2009
A decent fruit offering. Nice red/orange color. Aroma is great, showcasing the cherries. Flavor is tart and tasty, but a little chemically. Its always a fine balance with fruit beers. Guerde (1297) - Leuven, BELGIUM - APR 24, 2008
(growler, thanks Skyview) Pours cloudy orange with a white head. Aroma is just all cherry, and is similar to a Luden’s cough drop or some Cherry 7-up. The taste is also strong with cherry, but then the wheat comes in, the two flavors formed into an amalgamation that I did not find that pleasant. Finish of wheat and yeast with a medium mouthfeel.

[growler] shared by skyview. Aroma is huge of maraschino cherries. Flavor is really nice, not overpowering in the cherries. Wheat malt is definitely there with a little tartness. Thinnish mouthfeel. JK (6379) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - APR 20, 2008
Strong cherry aroma. Cherry and wheat in the flavor. A cloudy and light colored wheat beer. I think I understand what they were going for and they achieved it. There is cherry everywhere in this beer, and it is a good fruit beer.

Thanks to skyview for sharing. A very nice cherry aroma. Not so much cherry as cherry pie. Amazing. The body was just as cherry pieish, but the mouthfeel and finish reminded me of ludens cherry cough drops. Stine (1802) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 18, 2008
Poured from a growler; syrupy golden orange appearance, as if it’s guaranteed to taste like juice. Maraschino cherry and citrus aromas; with time, the cherry tones become tart and fat and rich, warmth of cinnamon and wheat and generally doughy weizen qualities underneath. Cool, grassy, soft yeast and hop flavor with lots of creamed cherry and vanilla; not overpowering, and mostly lacking the sharp, tangy sweetness or confronting tartness it should have as a defining characteristic. Instead, the cherry flavor is somewhat chalky and papery, like peeling the skin of the fruit that’s been sitting in water for a while; palate is dusty and cool to that effect, and would be benefit from a more sprightly disposition to liven it up. Not flawed by any means, just unexciting. Thanks for sharing, Bob! badgerben (5387) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - APR 18, 2008
Growler courtesy of Skyview. Cloudy gold color with no head. The aroma is absolutely screaming cherry. Plenty of it holds over to the taste, along with a partially dry wheat. A little chalky. The cherry is quite sweet, almost like pie filling. Skyview (6115) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAR 28, 2008
On draught at the brewpub in West Bend, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-clear dark golden brew with a creamy off-white head that quickly dissipates to a fine film and white ring. Aroma of over the top Wilderness cherry pie filling, some light white bread malt, some light citrus zest hop and a touch of yeast. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonation with a cherry bread flavor with a hint of yeast. Finish is semi-sweet, crisp and light aftertaste. The cherry pie filling flavor is the most pronounced flavor that really stands out. If you enjoy the flavor of cherry pie filling, you won’t be disappointed.
