Muted cherry tones make for a tolerable "fruit beer", not much backbone.

Pours clouded amber with an orange-ish tint. Dotted lacing sticks.

The smell is of cherry juice - with a slight tart touch.

The cherries land more "natural" than "artificial", though in a sweet juice way. There is a hint of tart in the finish.

It is rather watery. Slightly fizzy. Easy enough to drink.

Not one of the best fruit beers from Wisconsin, but better than some others out there. It's an average American Wheat with a cherry character that is a bit better than average.

A: Pours a lightly hazy golden orange in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising fairly quickly from the bottom of the glass and some faint reddish orange highlights. The beer has a half finger tall sudsy foamy off-white head that reduces to a large patch of mottled thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Overall this beer has a fairly light aroma with very light notes of wheat and slightly heavier notes of cherries.

T: Upfront there is a light flavor of wheat with a light to moderate flavor of cherries - not too sweet and not too tart. There is a light amount of underlying medicinal flavors whether from herbal hops or the cherries, I cannot determine. Minimal bitterness that does not linger.

M: Slightly heavier than light bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: Easy to drink and the alcohol is well hidden, it reminds me of a slightly better version of the Sam Adams Cherry Wheat (less artificial cherry smell/taste). Refreshing and would be good on a really hot day.

Reddish brown a slightly cloudy. Delicate smell of ripe sour cherries. This tastes like a Hostess Cherry Pie. And I honestly don't know if that is a compliment or a complaint. Very sweet cherry, kind of syrupy. Very noticeable bread taste.

One glass for dessert isn't bad. More than one in a sitting would be a bit much.

I picked this up for two reasons
1. I love cherry in beer and am a sucker for any cherry beer.
2. I truly don't believe this could be as bad as Samuel Adams version.

1.99 for the single

A - Orange red hue with just a 1/4 inch of head that clears out rather slowly. Rather hazy really.
S - Cherry, some wheat, and a touch of Carmel malt. It smells OK.
T - Pretty much cherry and caramel malty flavor. Doesn't get too wheaty but I can pick it up. Drinks kind of medicinal like the Samuel adams version so either more juice or hops.
M - Light to medium not too watery but only semi beer like.

Overall it's OK really reminds me of Tröegs Troegenator in a way. Well hidden alcohol with mild sweet flavors and a bland herbal finish.
