Reviewed from notes.

Pours out a hazy golden orange color with a single finger of white fluff for a head, smells of tart fresh black cherries, almonds, and light amounts of wheat. Flavor contains more of the same as the nose, but also a faint finish of herbal hopping at the very end. Body is somewhat thin but carbonation is alright. The main flaw in this beer that I can pick out is that the cherries are right up on the edge of getting too cloying sweet / cough syrup in nature...
