A decent tasting wheat. Very refreshing. You can definitely taste the cherry but it over powers the wheat flavor just a hair to much for me. Little to no head. Has a very good smell, you can really smell the cherry. A solid wheat beer but not my favorite of the style either. Would be great on a warm day.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Slightly cloudy, mostly yellow with a pinch of orange, nice white head with really good lacing, nice carbonation.

Smell: extremely fruity, like plums , apples, and cherries

Taste: Plums, Peaches, cherries. How can it taste so fruity? It's awesome, but unbelievable. However, where's the hops? ? Can hops taste like this? Cause this is too weird for hops to taste like, even though it's really good.

Mouthfeel: Creamy, bubbly, perfect.

overall: Extremely unique, definitely a session beer, delicious, but would like to taste more malt.

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: Cloudy burnt peach colored body, fizzy eggshell colored head that only leaves a ring, no lacing or film on top.

Aroma: Cherries definitely come through nicely, faint malts.

Taste: Immediate cherry sweetness and tartness, grainy cereal notes fill out the palate. A pretty sour finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with a lot of bright carbonation, not very smooth.

Overall: It tastes like a cherry wheat beer. The cherry component is really spot-on, the rest of the beer is rough around the edges.
