look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a straw yellow color with a fingers worth of head that actually retains fairly well... first SA regular rotation beer that I've seen do this. Thought I'd never see the day

S: Cherries stand out by far the most. Some slight wheat malt as well, but the cherries really dominate

T: Follows the nose, cherries at first followed by more cherry and wheat malt. Finishes with more sweet cherry. Well... this is certainly a cherry-forward beer. I wouldn't even bother putting wheat in the name, regardless of whether it's there or not

M: Light bodied with moderate carbonation

O: Don't go into drinking this thinking it will be subtle cherry... because it is NOT just a hint... The cherry consumes this beer. Also, don't drink this if you don't like your beers a little on the sweet side... And that's an understatement. It might get low ratings, but I for one enjoyed it. Probably because 1) I like cherries. A lot. And 2) because I like sweet beers. A lot. You are warned
