3.5/5  rDev +6.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Hazy golden amber with a small, persistent white head, lots of scattered, sticky lacing, and slight carbonation.

Aroma: The blackberry notes are very prominent, and moderately sweet, with a cordial-like aroma. Strong vanilla notes are present as well, and there are hints of coriander.

Taste: Opens with a wave of wheat malt, and rather understated blackberry notes. Certainly this is far removed from any malternative characteristics. There is a bit of spiciness as well. Classic wheat malt notes and restrained blackberry flavors dominate the taste from start to finish. There is not much that is reminiscent of the Witbier style. The taste draws to a close with a mild bitter note, which lingers at the back of the mouth.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, and a bit dry.

Drinkability/notes: An interesting and certainly an uncommon twist on the Witbier stylw.

Presentation: Packaged in a custom twelve-ounce longneck bottle with raised lettering and a pop-off crown, served in a standard pint tap glass.

Serving type: bottle

3.51/5  rDev +6.4%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A--Hazy gold, straw colour. Almost no head and very little lacing.

S--It smells like one would expect, blackberries. Not anything else overly complex, but enjoyable.

T--About the same as the nose. Blackberry is huge and up front. A bit of the wheat toward the end and the aftertaste is primarily blackberry.

M--Very good. Light to medium body, pretty refreshing and lightly carbonated.

O--The beer does what it says it's going to do: give you blackberry and wheat. I think fans of fruit beers should enjoy it well enough, and I actually like it better than Sam Adams Cherry Wheat, which I thought had a bit of mediciney note. Maybe I just had too much cherry cough syrup growing up. I don't know that I'll go out and buy it again, but I'd drink it gladly if it were offered to me at a bar or party.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Bottle has a best before date of July 2014.
