From the brewer

Over 90lbs of cherry juice were added to each barrel of this wheat ale. The result is a refreshing, effervescent, tart cherry beer with just the right splash of cherry sweetness. Guests to our taproom can enjoy this beer as a shandy when combined with our hand-made ginger soda (when available).

Who's been drinking this

Tart and fruity, almost a little watery as I recall. Wasn't complex and definitely not great, but I didn't tire of it by the end so hey. Of course, it was just a 5oz taster, heh.
Still tastes like a fruit soda.
A bit watery. Reminds me of a rose wine. In a bad way.
It's just kind of like cherry soda. Not syrupy or anything bad, just more like a soda than a beer.
Sweet scented. Fresh and effervescent. Tasty and fruity.
