A: half finger frothy head on a pale golden body.

S: mild berry sweetness with light malts and wheat.

T: wheat and generic berry flavors. a little watery but refreshing.

M: light body and high carbonation.

Overall: pretty simple. I am unfamiliar with what acai berries should taste like but the berry is easy to detect in both aroma and taste.

Review from 6/2011 notes. Poured into a Black Raven pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy light orange yellow amber. Thin dissipating head with no lacing. Pungent aroma of fruit, presumably acai with a hint of wheat. Pleasant light acai fruit flavor that fades quickly. Only a hint of wheat or hops. Dry, faintly flavored finish. It tastes like this could be quite nice with a bit more flavor. Not bad for a low ABV, fruit flavored drink, but not something I'd go to for an ale.

Poured a hazy, pale orange with a finger of bright white head. Sweet aroma of orange, berry, and honey with a touch of spice.

Moderate carbonation and a very light mouthfeel. Lemon and tart berry up front followed by a touch of wheat and more grainy/spicy notes on the finish.

Actually pretty tasty -- light and refreshing, though the berry becomes cloying after a while without a stronger malt backbone to balance things. A little too thin on the front end.

This beer poured out as a hazy golden color, the head on top was white an kind of soapy looking. The smell of the beer is fruity, but not overly powerful on the nose. The taste of the beer is light, kind of on the weak side, it's got some wheat flavors in there along with some of the Acai Berry flavors. The mouthfeel of the beer is light, watered down a bit and not really that impressive. Overall I wanted to try it since it was something I never had before. I can't say I'll ever buy it again but I'm happy to have tried it.

First had: bottle from Pinocchio's beer garden, Media, PA

Poured into a Pinocchio's stem glass a light straw-yellow, with a slight haze, and a nice puff of white head that receded to almost nothing. Grainy aroma, typical wheat profile, accented with sweet acai berries (a fruit I've only otherwise sampled in some flavored water drink). Flavorwise, it delivers what it promises: a tangy wheat beer, with acai. Smooth and mellow, and sweet, but not sickeningly sweet. Very nice fruit beer. Light body and overall quite drinkable; I'd get it again.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: Very light copper color, little cloudy with about 2 fingers of fluffy head that dissipated pretty quickly. Very little lacing.

S: Smell is sweet and tart, mix of berries and wheat.. not hops at all...

T: First thing I'm getting is that sweet yet tart Acai berries flavor followed by wheat and yeast... aftertaste is light.

M: Beer is crisp and easy to drink.... carbonation is pretty high but not bad for the style.

O: Pretty average for a beer of this type.... The Acai berries add a tartness.... little different from Raspberries in that it is a little sweeter.... worth a try...
