A lightly hazy sunset blonde in color. Couldn't scrounge up a head, other than a thin ring wall of foam.

Smells like a cross between cherry ice cream and wheat malts. Very sweet nose. Very one-note. Lightly hopped, it's just at the cusp of noticeable.

Much more beery after all. Wheat malts, cherry ice cream, light grassiness, background floral hops, vanilla bean, and finishing spice (grains of paradise?). So-so.

Feels average. Mild carb, languid and boring body. Ok.

Not as terrible as many make it out to be. Still nothing special.

This beer smells delicious. Very strong scent of cherries and very strong taste of cherries. Quite refreshing but a little overpowering at times. The only thing that is not satisfactory is that the beer stains the lines at bars and whatever is put on after the Cherry Wheat ends up having a faint(old) taste of cherries. The cherry taste is delightful but a bit too boastful.
