look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 3

12oz can. No canning date. Poured into a red Cigar City snifter 7/15/2014.

A- Dark brown body, surprisingly darker than expected. Comes with a two finger mocha head that retains quite well, falling eventually into a thick foam that persists for quite a while. Rings of lacing. Pretty surprising for a wheat wine, I'd say.

S- Faint cherry sweetness mixed in with a lot of toffee and caramel. Not much more than this. It's a fairly strong nose, though with what it does have. The wheatwine base is quite sweet while the cherry flavours impart a slight tartness with fruity sweetness.

F- Initial kick of cherry puree that quickly transitions to a malty sweet toffee flavour, complemented by caramel and hints of spices. Interesting, quite intense. I suspect that if I enjoyed maltier styles of beer, I'd like this one more than I do now. Its not quite chocolate covered cherries, but it's maybe halfway there.

M- Problematic. Thinner bodied though with fine carbonation. This beer has quite a bit of heat on the backend that makes it a sipper and also makes it fairly difficult to get through the entire can on your own. No surprise, but this really isn't all that drinkable.

O- Interesting and unique concept but it just didn't execute that well for me. Booziness and heat takes a lot from the sweet, malty wheatwine base and the slightly tart and fruity sweet cherry addition.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 1.75

Pour is very dark cola brown with lots of fairly tight tan head. Nose has a strong malt presence mixed with booziness and some plastic like cherry. Lots of sugar, brown sugar, caramel, in the nose. Taste is worse, malt gets a bit acrid and messy, sugars abound, loads of plastic and sugary cherry flavoring. Thin body, moderate carbonation, lingering acrid bitterness.

Serving type: can

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12 ounce can into a goblet. The can says January 28, 2014 on it.

Appearance: Pours a medium to dark brown and leaves a couple fingers of pretty, light tan head that hang around for a long time.

Smell: Big nutty malts, black cherry, cloves, cream, brown sugar, wheat. Interesting aroma with some different flavors at play.

Taste: Belgian yeast, black cherry, cloves, malts, brown sugar, molasses. An interesting combination: Belgian quad meets cherries.

Mouth-feel: Medium carbonation with a medium to thick body. Finishes with a bit of alcohol.

Overall: An interesting brew: heavily Belgian-style influenced with some cherry-cream, the wheat is quite present as well.

Serving type: can
