A-pours an orange/really soft amber coloe with a fluffy off white head with pretty good retention
S-cherry cough syrup and wheat
T-More of the same. Cherry and wheat malt mixed up front met with some hop bitterness and leaves cherry flavor on the palate. It's honestly not badly balanced but the artificial cherry flavor is a bit much
M-medium-light bodied
O-Not my favorite but I could drink it

Great Fruit Beer. I keep buying this without the intent of getting it because I like to try many different brews. But for some reason, I really enjoy this beer. To me, its got a great summer cherry, nutty flavor that goes down easy and smooth. Great brew while cutting the grass or working in the garage etc... I like it.

A - Pours a slightly cloudy yellow-orange with a one and a half finger head. Dissipates quickly to a light cap and sticky lacing.

S - Heavy sweet cherries, background of wheat, very nice.

T - Sweet at first, very small cherry flavor, then a huge burst of the cherries on the swallow. Mild yeast and hop bitterness in the aftertaste.

M - Medium body, heavy carbonation. Needs less bubbles.

O - I feel this is a really good cherry beer, a little heavy handed in the aroma but a great flavor profile. Like many of their beers, a bit too much carbonation. Nice to have if you are in the mood for a fruity beer.
