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

Appearance: A light golden color, filtered, short white head that dissipates almost as fast as it appears. No lacing left behind

Smell: Strong cherry smell up front, then a nice wheat background

Taste: Cherry, wheat, with a dry finish. The flavor is much more balanced and not overwhelmingly cherry like I remember having it previous times

Mouthfeel: Light body, medium carbonation

Overall: A good dessert beer. The wheat character isn't quite what I would like, but it overall is still pretty good. Would also prefer if it was unfiltered, maybe more like a cherry hefeweizen.

Poured into a tasting glass from the tap.

The color is light cloudy, amber with a white head.

The smell is strong cherry, and a hint of spice.

The taste is mostly cherry but it does also have a good wheat flavor as well as a little hops.

This last try at tasting this beer became quite a surprise. I was not expecting to really have a positive feeling about this beer.

This is a beer that is good for when you need something really light but still want to drink a beer. Not a bad beer for clearing the taste buds in between Imperial porters.
