A- Poured most of the beer into pint glass and then swirled to get all the sediment off the bottom of the bottle. hazy golden straw color with a touch of amber hue. 1 finger white heat doesn't stick around long. Lots of carbonation to it.

S- Huge cherry notes with wheat right behind it. Has a sweetness that is just great.

T- Has a cherry medicinal flavor to it. Like a cross between cough syrup and plastic. there used to be a candy in stores called wax bottle candies. They were an edible wax that has a juice inside. This has that waxy taste to it that is just very unappealing.

M- Feels like a medium body with good carbonation to it. Smooth on the palate.

O- If I had no taste buds this would be a wonderful beer. Great smells and mouthfeel to it, but I cannot get over that medicinal taste. Take a halls cherry cough drop and remove the menthol part of it and you come out with this beer.
