Review

Holy fruity taste! This beer definitely has a lot of flavor to it. It’s a wheat beer with cherry juice in it. The more and more I drink this as I write the more I love it. The aftertaste hints cherries and isn’t bitter at all. The smell of this beer is….yes you guessed it….sweet. It’s a great poolside beer or it’s great anytime it’s above 75 degrees. But, Bell’s only launches this beer once a year and it’s in May. So, stock up for the summer folks.

Bell’s is out of Michigan and they even used Michigan based cherries into this beer. Bell’s says the beer’s “Cherries add a subtle tartness and bright counterpoint to the other flavors, enhancing Pooltime’s fruity character and making it the perfect beer for all summer activities.

Review

What a beer, this is definitely one of my go-to’s when I head to a liquor store. It’s an easy beer to drink with a high alcohol content. It hints aromas of fruit and sweetness then kicks with a bitter aftertaste.

Lagunitas states it’s “A hoppy pale wheat ale that is great for IPA fans but so smooth that the hefeweizen fans dig it too.” I agree because most beer drinkers can get enjoy this one. Plus, Lagunitas never disappoints in my opinion.
