Pours a hazy, honey-gold color with some carbonation. There is a thick white head that stays fairly well throughout the drink.
Smell is very strong with cherries, almost too much for me. Very syrupy sweet smell of black cherries, but a bit of wheatiness jumps in at the end.
Taste has a lot less of a cherry dominance than the smell. The cherries are there, though, with a nice cherry sweet taste balanced by a nice wheat taste. Wheat is much stronger and better in the taste.
Mouthfeel is very smooth. There is a nice thickness to it as well.
Drinkability isn't there for me. I will tap out after one or two of these because of the sweet cherry taste. Fairly nice summer drink, it isn't the best beer, but I would recommend people at least try it.
Serving type: on-tap
