Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: TechTriumph on 09-10-2012

A Belgian wheat beer brewed with a touch of rye and a massive addition (over 1,000 lbs. per 40-barrel batch) of plump, ripe blackberries grown by Agriberry in Hanover County, Hardywood Virginia Blackberry offers an assertive fruit character while remaining extremely refreshing. Ruby hued with the bright aroma of fresh bramble berries, this beer’s pleasantly gentle body leads to a rather dry, rounded fruit finish, making it irresistible on a hot summer day.

A wonderful balance of sweetness from the blackberries an pleasant yeast notes of a lighter Belgian. Quite sessionable and enjoyable.

A: This poured an opaque gold with moderate white head.
S: It smelled like grassy hops and salty Belgian yeast, with some tart berry.
T: It tasted like sweet cream and bready yeast, with some grassy hops and tart blackberry. It had a clean sweet and tart aftertaste.
M: It was fairly thick with smooth natural carbonation. Beautiful body.
D: This was a very refined brew with delicate and enjoyable scent and taste. The body was outstanding, and the finish was really smooth, so it was easy to drink. Probably not for aging. Great drink.
