Served in a Walter Payton shaker pint glass.

Well, at least there are Door County cherries wherever the hell I've been shipwrecked... Anyway, this stuff pours a clear brass topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose reminds me of those cheap, microwaveable cherry-flavored fruit pies so prevalent at 7-Eleven and other such purveyors. In fact, the smell is so strong, so distinctively cherry-y that it not only approaches artificiality but passes it entirely. Not much else to be found here. The taste continues this tradition with its own twist: not only is the cherry flavor artificial, it's also medicinal now. Yay... A bit of soggy wheat comes along in the finish, but that about does it here for complexity. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, I'm not a fan of this stuff, as it's just to fake-cherry-flavor-filled for my tastes.

I got a 6-pack of this from Woodman's in Janesville, WI for $7.79 in Winter 2011.

Pours a clear reddish amber color with not too much of a head due to the lack of carbonation. Scent is heavy with sweet cherry juice scents with some wheat scents as well. The texture is rather flat and uninviting. It really reminds me of the taste of day old beer with some grenadine added. Probably one of the worst fruit beers I've had. It's still drinkable but not very enjoyable. I think I'll stick to Sam Adams Cherry Wheat the next time.

Clear light copper and sunshne color. Light bubbling, light head, and no residual foam. Lack luster appearance overall.

Cherry syrup and maybe some light toasted barley and wheat, maybe... Thats it.

Taste is cherry syrup and watered down toasted malts. The malts seem a bit bitter and adjuncty. Not hop bitter, but maybe corn and rice bitter, or hard water mineral bitter.

Make sure you drink this beer cold and relatively fast for full flavor enjoyment.
