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.

A: When I poured this one from a bottle to a mug, it had a yellowish color and a cloudy texture. There was an OK head and some good lacing.

S: The aroma, predictably, was dominated by cherries. Not unpleasant, but it didn't necessarily remind me of a beer smell.

T: Like the smell, the taste was dominated by cherries. You do get a bit of the titular wheat and some malt, but the star of the show was the cherry.

M: There was an above average amount of carbonation here, along with a kind of syrupy finish. This is a medium-bodied beer.

D: I have mixed feelings about this one. If you like fruit beers, you might want to try this one. It's not bad, but I don't think I'll move it into the lineup.
