Appeared light golden color with little head
Smelled kind of sour and bready
Tasted akwardly sour (kinda like it wasnt supposed to be there or as strong), no dicernable cherry taste or even a note, with a wet/ stale bread finish and a slight gym sock after taste.
Overall an awful experience...this is the first brew i tried from north peak, i drank two bottles at different times and they were both consistantly funky.

$1.99 for a stubby 12oz bottle @ BevCo.

ABV: 5.0% IBUs: 38.0

Brewed with Wheat and Pale malts. Hopped with Willamette and Perl. Michigan bitter cherries are tossed into the secondary.

Pours out to a clear medium amber with ruby highlights, forming a modest off light yellow head with OK retention and nice sheets of lace. Carbonation is medium. The nose is tart with green kiwi fruit, cherries, and sour aluminum. The mouthfeel is tart with a medium body. The taste opens with some peculiar yeast esters and faint hop flavor, then is quickly replaced by bitter red cherries and a medium chemical bitterness. The aftertaste is earthy, tart and bitter.

I can't say I really care for this beer too much. The brewers were trying to NOT make a syrupy sweet beer, which often happens with the fruit beer style, and by adding hop bitterness, they only turned a syrupy beer bitter. It's not well-balanced and doesn't quite sit right. Wierd metals, tannins, sourness, bitterness...it all just turns out to be a mess.

Based on 7/11/10 bottle tasting:

I had high hopes for this one, but was let down. The color is darker than I would expect which much be the cherry juice. Too carbonated for my taste and has a dry character on the tail as it warms that I don't care for. This is my first North Peak beer and it doesn't make me want another.

My first review of a NP brew, had this poured from the bottle into a weizen glass. The aroma was citrus mixed with cherries, which I have to say was one of the more appealing things about the beer. The color was a soft gold, translucent but almost clear. The taste to me however was confusing and almost clashing. I think that he cherry flavor almost was too harsh and took away from the mildness one usually looks for in a summer wheat. Style points for the cool bottle, but not one of my favorites.
