Review from notes.
Pours into dimpled mug a full amber color with little to no head retention though carbonation is evident.
Smells of wheat and cherries both up in the front.
Taste/Mouthfeel, a very well done balanced mix of tangy crisp wheat with a nice cherry finish that ends crisp and clean.
Another interesting entry from this brewery. A good, easy drinking yet flavorful summer beer who's cherry flavor isn't overwhelming in the sweetness. Would definitely recommend and get again for the warmer weather.

Golden brown beer with a thin head that dissipates quickly. Aromas of cherry, grass and some faint spice. Tart cherry and spice flavors with some grassiness in the aftertaste. With flavors that are somewhat muted and a light, crisp body, this could be a good brew for the beer connoisseur to take to the lake or a barbecue.

A: Darker orange-tinted amber in color. Forms a large bubbly head that reduces down to a thick white surface coating. Some very light lacing.

S: There is a hint of sour cherries, but the dominate smell is of carbonated walter or seltzer. Slightly reminiscent of a cherry 7-up.

T: Surprisingly strong tart cherry flavor. Beer itself is tart, yet with a slight candy-like sweetness on the back end. Cherry and a hint of vanilla with some easy pale malt in the background.

M: Lighter side of medium in body, but with heavy carbonation that gives this beer a slightly prickly feel to it.

O: A quite refreshing take on the style with a surprising dose of cherry flavor. Most beers like this barely have any fruit flavor, or what is there is artificial tasting. Not this one. The cherry is quite apparent and pretty tasty. Wish the nose was a bit more inviting and the carbonation were toned down, but otherwise a tasty, refreshing beer.
