12 oz bottle, poured into pint glass. Best by May 2012.

Pours an ever-so-slightly reddish color. Not as hazy as the wheat would have you believe. About half a finger of white head that fades rapidly, leaving ok lacing.

Smells like sweet malt mixed with black cherry juice, with a teeeny hint of hops. I like cherries, so I enjoy it. Your mileage may vary.

Quite a bit of cherry flavor here, but not all of it tastes natural. Plenty of wheat in the aftertaste, followed by bitterness. Again, YMMV.

Medium body with fairly heavy carbonation. Works well.

It's not world-class, but it's certainly refreshing. I could drink a few of these on a summer day and be plenty happy.
