Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours from bottle as a lightly hazed orange-amber color with a two finger white head. The head fades relatively quickly and leaves only a slight level of lacing.
Smell – The aroma is quite sweet of berries. It is a mix of blackberry and raspberry with hint of a wheat background.
Taste – The taste starts out with a smooth mildly blackberry sweet flavor with some bready wheat mixed within. As the taste advances it starts taking on more sweetness of berries, both raspberry and blackberry. While it gets sweeter from the start to the middle, the sweetness fades slightly as it advances to the end. Oddly the blackberry flavor seems to get stronger as the sweetness fades with it leaving a semi-sweet but not overly sweet blackberry and light wheat flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is quite light in its creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the medium to higher side. Both are suiting for the berry flavors of the brew, making it more refreshing and easier drinking.
Overall – An alright berry flavored brew. Not overly sweet, yet maintaining a decent berry flavoring.
