3.84/5 rDev +6.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A- Somewhere between amber and ruby colored body. Light shines through the body easily, but there is a slight haze that prevents some transparency. Head is a very bright white that leaves a ring of thin bubbles around the edges of the glass.
S- Lots of spicy Belgian yeast and wheat in the nose. A lot of fresh wheat notes. The blackberries don't same you in the face, but I feel like they may be slightly more subtle than other berries anyway.
T- Tart blackberries give way to tons of that fresh wheat, which gives way back to the tart blackberry flavors. Finish also shows off some of the Belgian yeast, but the rest of the beer is a give and take between the wheat and the berries.
M- Crisp, bubbly, medium bodied, finishes somewhat dry.
O- I liked this more than I thought I would. I thought it would be a berry-bomb, but it turned out to be a wheat-bomb with a nice berry presence. Really refreshing beer.

3.76/5 rDev +3.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: reddish orange amber with some wheat haze and thin white head
Aroma: coriander, blackberries and fruitiness, orange citrus, blue curaçao
Taste: very Belgian yeasty with definite blackberry tartness, balanced, white wheaty flavor but with fruitiness that gives it some depth, overall not bursting with flavor but a very smooth and nice fruity, dry, and tart drink
Mouthfeel: medium-low body, a little thin in the mouth, high carbonation
Overall: Nicely balanced with strong tartness and smooth blackberry flavor with wheaty and spiced character from spice additions and belgian yeast phenols. Definitely worth a try
