Availability: Summer

Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Disappointing, considering the commercial description of "1000 lbs of plump, ripe blackberries". On draft at Capone's, it looks like a standard witbier without any evidence of blackberries in the color and only a hint of berries in the aroma or taste. Frankly, a Blue
moon has substantially more character.

Above average and crisp wit that borders on saison flavors. I wish there was more of a blackberry presence. It seemed to be there faintly as the beer warmed. Good beer, but I have had better in the style.
