12oz bottle into a pint glass. best by may 2018, so well inside the wire here.

slightly hazy yellow body, small white head leaving some lacing. light carbonation.

smells like cherry cough syrup. i do not like cherry cough syrup.

ugh. tastes like cherry cough syrup too, at first anyway. then there is a musty barnyard taste.

mouth around medium, finish initially cherry, then mouldy.

overall, barely got through a few ounces before drainpouring it. might be even worse than their cranberry lambic.

I tend to like wheat beer, and this one tastes great, with just the right amount of cherry.

Poured into a grip shaped goblet: color is hazy gold/copper, head is off white with fine bubbles, good lacing on the glass and good lingering presence.

Smell is - somewhere between maraschino cherry juice and cherry cough syrup with a hint of biscuit malt - off putting for the most part but the wheat presents more as it warms.

Taste is biscuit wheat for a split second then overtaken by the cherry juice, with that artificial twang - struggling through this tasting...

Mouthfeel is bitter, sharp, and strong astringent like quality.

Overall - a beer I'm not enjoying and will have to pour out the rest.

There is a fine line between cherry cough syrup and sweet cherry (as opposed to sour cherry) flavor in beer. To me this barely came down on the non-medicinal side of things. I enjoyed it. My wife hated it. Won't be buying again.

Love this one, especially when the weather turns and gets cold. Perfect beer to sip at parties. Surprisingly tasty for a beer that isn't very thick. Love the cherry flavor!
