Pours a clear golden/straw color with a large fluffy white head. Nose is wheat and lots of sharp cherry. Taste is a decidedly non-yeasty wheat base that has just a hint of funk. Lots of sharp bitter cherries that may be a tad too strong for my taste. Mouthfeel is med-light and quite high carb with lotsa dryness.

Fruit beers are tricky and this one pulls it off. Wheat dryness and cherry dryness go well together. Did I mention this is dry and tart? Maybe a bit too much cherry going on. Worth a try and a good beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Golden straw color. Slightly hazy. Pours a thick fluffy white head that fades slowly. Lots of lacing.

Smell: cherry extract, vanilla, cola.

Taste: cherry, biscuit finish, wheat malt, cola.

Mouthfeel: light bodied, crisp finish, smooth upfront. Good carbonation.

Overall: A very tasty beer. One of my favorite fruit beers, and one of the first beers to turn me onto craft beer. Well balanced. Drinkability is very high.
