look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

12oz bottle poured into pint glass

A- Hazy golden with lots of carbonation. Nice two white two finger head with excellent retention and lacing.

S- Tons of cherry sweetness

T- Takes off running from where the nose left off. Cherry sweetness followed by malty sweetness. Did I mention that it’s sweet?

M- Thin and fizzy. Not as crisp and tart like I would have expected it to be.

O- Way to sweet for my taste buds, but I might have found a beer my girlfriend would like! Seems way to sweet for a cherry wheat as if it’s jam packed with cherry artificial flavors rather than the natural tartness I was looking for.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

12 fl oz bottle
poured a pale golden translucent liquid, compact white 2 fingers head, nice retention, little lacing. nose composed of cherry syrup palate is the same, cherry syrup and malty sweetness followed by a dry finish, cherry retronasal. not very complex, flavor is very concetrated, light body, lots of carbonation, im not very affect of this thin fizzy kind of beers but i liked the head and simplicity of it, just cherry, the flavor seems bit of artificial thou, like a cherry pop diluted in water maybe, would like this better if the cherry was just a hint and let the other beer ingredients come out to play.

2.56/5  rDev -18.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.25

Appearance - Pours a hazy yellowish-amber color with an inch thick, creamy white head. Dissipates after 2 minutes and leaves a really nice lacing.

Smell - Has a very strong cherry aroma that reminds me of licorice. Very malty also

Taste - Overly sweet with a disgusting flavor that reminds me of Robitussin. It's very creamy and malty, with a little bit of wheat shining through at the end.

Mouthfeel - Medium, creamy body with medium carbonation.

Overall - In all honesty, this beer grosses me the hell out.. lol. The only thing I liked was the mouthfeel.
