Bottle, notched M (March) 12, poured into a Weiss glass.
A- A normal pour created a 1-finger, white head with a light, pinkish hue. A yeast swirl added a nice cloudiness to the gold body. The body is actually pretty complex. It was nearly clear at the bottom edges, golden in the middle, and nearly brown where the suspended yeast floated near the head. Foam sustained at 1/2 finger and left nice sticky rings on the glass.
S- Light and crisp. Fresh cherries. Both sweet and tart components. It almost brings me back to memories of Capri Sun "juice" pouches, however more natural. Yeasty goodness. Hints of grainy, cracker-like malts (Ritz perhaps). Warmth brings out more cracker-like malt qualities.
T- Definite cherry flavor. Sweet up front with a tart finish. More Capri Sun qualities (though I haven't had one in years). Dry finish. Malts are secondary and Ritz cracker-like. Warmth brings out more malt.
M- maybe a bit thin at first. Quite dry. Moderate carbonation. Chewy enough to convince me it's a wheat beer.
O- Refreshing spring/Summer beer. Perfect fit for the post-lawn mowing, baseball watching I'm currently doing. More fruit than wheat (solid fruit beer at that). I appreciate the love shown to the native MI cherries. Delicate brew. Got the "thumbs up" from my wife. Would buy again.

Basic beer, drinkable. Mild cherry aroma and understated in taste. Built up mouthfeel, as if I am rolling over a gumball. Nothing special, though cherry makes it half interesting. Fast dissipitating head.Bottle from Steve in Warren.A good idea that needs better execution.

Highly carbonated! Pours a large (3 inch) off-white-to-white creamy head which never fully dissipates. Spicy wheat and light cherry in the nose. Light body with a touch of acidity on the palate. Very light cherry notes on the palate (ever chew/suck on cherry pits?). Poured with a slight haze and makes beautiful Belgian lace. Refreshing, and bright with a medicinal hint. Lingers nicely. Final pour released much yeast which fell to the bottom of the glass.
