Poured a 2" white head but vanished pretty quickly. Pretty golden yellow color with a slight haze to it. Smell has bready malt and cherry along the lines of cough syrup. Taste emphasizes the bready malt much more than the cherry. Body is fairly lightweight and ordinary and finish is more malt than cherry.
Look, it's not stellar, but I don't know why so many are hating on this beer. It's not like they gave up on the beer aspects and just went for gobs of cherry.

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.
