Golf got rained out so on to plan #2, Town Hall! Love their fruited beers! Drank from a tulip.

Appearance- Pours a light pinkish with a big bright white fluffy head. Most of it disappears quickly but plenty of lacing is left behind.
Smell- Nothing ridiculously mind blowing or complex but everything you'd expect. Lots of fruity and somewhat tart cherry whaffs. It almost has a sort of light cinnamon thing that comes through too. Smells like a less potent NG Belgium Red.
Taste- Starts with a lightly tart kick that is pretty tame all things considered. The fruit is nice but I wish it was just a bit more intense. The finish is pretty doughy as the wheat really comes through. I wish the tartness of the cherry cut through the doughy a bit more.
Mouthfeel- Fairly thin body with a light bite of carbonation.
Drinkability- As with all Town Hall brews it’s pretty good but I sort of feel like they didn’t make it as fruity as they usually do. Maybe the cherries weren’t as potent this year? Who knows. Still, very good and I enjoyed a couple!

American Wheat aged on fresh cherries. 5.4%

1/2 finger of white head. Fades down quick. Leave s lot of sticky lace rings. Color is a hazed grapefruit ruby red.

Aroma: Tar cherries, wheat, lemon zest, and some spice. The cherries are the main part of the nose, but they don't overpower it.

Taste: Tart and sweet cherries. Cherry pie filling. Wheat, cloves, and spice. Orange peel and lemon zest.

Mouthfeel: Crisp, refreshing, and clean. Light bodied with a medium to high amount of carbonation. Ends clean.

overall, an easy drinking wheat with a cherry flavor that isn't fake or doesn't dominate the flavor. Enjoyable.

O- Another good infusion from Town Hall, love the cherry flavor, really refreshing and tasty, perfect summer beer.

Wasn't real keen on trying this one, but gave it a shot anyways.

A ruby shaded yellow color with a small head of off white foam that receded pretty fast.

Fresh slightly tart cherries with a wheat scent in the background.

Definitely a wheat base to the beer, but lightly tart cherries are the showcase feature. The cherries are fresh and pretty balanced between sweet and tart. The wheat is just the transporter for the cherries and they work nicely together.

Between light and medium bodied, has a nice smoothness with a mildly prickly carbonation. A bit of a pucker factor, but not much.

Drinks as nice if not nicer than other cherry beers out there. I'm not a big cherry beer fan with the exception of one other and now this one. A really nice summer fruit beer.
