Blech. Fruit beers just aren't for me. However, my husband loves the crap out of this beer. To me, this tastes like a mix of bad cherry candy or cough medicine, mixed with a decent wheat beer. If the cherry flavor was a bit more subtle, I think I'd like it a lot better.

Poured from a bottle with a clear golden color and a nice white foam head. Aroma is distinctly cherry. The mix of wheat and cherry makes for an enjoyable flavor. I’ve had some beers where the fruity flavor ruins it, but there’s just the right balance of cherry and wheat beer in this brew.
