3.5/5  rDev +11.8%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance is a hazy orange gold with a thin crisp head leaving spotty lace. Smell has a dominant maraschino cherry aroma or even a cherry coke. Taste again of cherry coke or cherry cream soda with wheat as the backbone. Mouthfeel is light with good carbonation. Not bad brew if you like cherry coke.

Serving type: bottle

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Look - Murky, straw colored with very good 2 finger's worth of head and good carbonation.

Smell - As would not be surprising, a very strong cherry aroma, beyond which I cannot smell anything.

Taste and Mouthfeel - seems a bit hoppy, but the the cherry flavor is almost overwhelming. It tastes like a fairly natural Marichinno cherry flavor. General texture is fairly well-balanced. Cherry aftertaste too, with almost no bitterness.

Drinkability - Good enough brew if you like cherries. A little more filling, so maybe not worth drinking a lot of at one time. Interesting enough, but maybe a little cliche for this brewer.

3.5/5  rDev +11.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12oz bottle to pint glass.

A: Semi opaque amber-copper color with a two-finger white head. Head retention isn't amazing but it leaves some decent lacing.

S: Smells like strong flavorful cherries with a little bit of a wheat smell. Basically smells like candy, I'm very excited to taste off the smell alone.

T: Very interesting, tastes more like a light bodied wheat beer with a small dry-sweet cherry finish. Even when warmed up the flavor doesn't show as much as I hoped.

M: Surprisingly low carbonation, which is probably the cause of the lack of bold flavor.

Overall: Smells amazing but doesn't follow up on the taste, it's not very well carbonated but is still very drinkable. I'd say try a bottle if you get it cheap, I wouldn't avoid it but probably won't seek it out again.
