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.

Thanks to Rudzud for sharing. Reviewing from old notes.

Pink grapefruit hazy color, touch of lacing fades instantly.

Nose has light bready funk, little black berry, hint of malts, semi fruity but not a lot, maybe a touch of phenols.

Taste brings tart blackberry, light smooth malt, hint diacetyl, light tartness, bit of dry bready malt and yeast flavors, dry fruity finish.

M: Thin body, lighter carb.

Overall nothing to write home about, decent fruits but could have been better.

Serving type: bottle

750ml bottle, split, hill farmstead glass

Interesting beer - a pink-rose color, moderately carbonated, light fluffy white head. One patron described tasting "band-aids" - more realistically, I think we all concluded not to buy berries sourced from the virginia commonwealth. Light spiced yeast, sweet berry flavor, wheat - nothing really standing out here, the blackberry could have been integrated so much better.
