This brew poured from the 12 ounce bottle a clean and golden in colour. The head was decent, but quickly faded to a lace along the glass. This fruit beer is rather dry, IMHO, which is not necessarily a terrible thing. The aromas of malt and cherry are prevalent, but almost to a fault. Still, this is a fine fruit beer, that also serves as a refreshing brew as well.

Zum wohl!

Part of the Summer beers mixed 12 pack.The beer poured a clear golden amber color. A big fluffy one inch head which slowly fades to a leave just a little lacing. Aroma is of sweet cherries and little else. Taste is of tart cherries and sweet malt. A bit too sweet for me but not bad for a flavored wheat beer..

Pours hazy-cloudy golden yellow color, nice big creamy white head, leaves a clingy lace to the sides of my glass, sweet fruity cherry aroma. Flavor of cherries and wheat, very sweet, tart cherry flavor, almost sour, I guess this is OK for a fruit beer.
