Draft at brewpub; took it off the chalkboard shortly after ordering it. Color was pinkish/orange; aroma was light with some wheat and cherry. Flavor was much of the same; pretty bland. DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 23, 2007
Sampler, on the chalkboard just as "cherry wheat". Cloudy orange body w/ a pink tint. Light maraschino cherry aroma over sweet pie crust. A husky light wheat ale base with a slightly tart cherry element on top comprises the underwhelming (but predictable?) flavor. A pretty crappy cherry beer that even chicks might not dig :-) Cornfield (5569) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUL 21, 2007
This brew has a cloudy pinkinsh/purplish body with a decent enough white head. The aroma is wheaty with a light cherry tartness to it. Not overblown as is many a fruited up wheat beer, this has a pleasant fruity tartness to it that makes this a respectable quencher in the Summer.Jokes (1455) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 25, 2004

Hazy, light golden body with the lightest hint of pink. The aroma is not as fruity as I would have thought. Some banana, some tart cherry, but more wheat and various cereals, a slight sour element, and a touch of spicy. The body is light and effervescent and pleasing on a warm, summer day. The flavor is more interesting than the nose, as more of the cherry character comes out. Tart cherries seem to go well with sweet banana and some light cereals. Maybe the best thing about these Rock Bottom fruit/wheat beers is that they do not become sweet alcopops like Lindeman’s Kriek or something like that. The fruit is present, but doesn’t dominate, it only compliments. There is a light tartness at thr finish which keeps things authentic. Maybe the best part is the subsequent belching, which provides much cherry and little wheat. DrnkMcDermott (3176) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - JUN 30, 2004
Draft, at RB Chicago. My reaction was different than yous, but c’est la vie. I found it a very agreeable and refreshing lawnmower type of wheat with well-behaved charries, contributing more tartness than "Smith Bros." Pours a thin head on a cloudy golden wheat body, with a deep red center, like frozen cherries in a popsicle. The slight citrus character of the American wheat base gives it a "cherry lemonade" quality.
