12oz bottle served in a SA "perfect pint" glass.

pours a translucent golden tone while yielding a 2" foamy head that quickly lapses into a collar around the glass; no real lacing to speak of. unsurprisingly, the nose comes out of the blocks with a good dose of cherry, joined by some secondary wheaty notes.

taste delivers more of the same. strong cherry presence through and through, which is blended with a background wheaty, light maltiness. medium bodied mouthfeel with average carbonation.

this beer generally catches a lot of flak in beer geek circles, but to me it's a reasonably enjoyable fruit beer. maybe i'm biased from cherry wheat being one of my 'gateway' craft brews, and while i wouldn't drink more than one or two in a sitting, i find it relatively tasty and refreshing - a decent summer beer.

Medium amber color that is clear with a very small white head. Aroma full of cherries and almond extract. Sweet and tasty black cherry flavor. Finishes dry and clean still lingering with cherries.

If you like cherries, you'll probably like this, but I can't really imagine myself drinking this regularly or with any sort of meal except for desert.
