Poured into a mug. Slight white head from a vigorous pour. Tart fruit and sweet malt in the nose. Blackberries, of course. Light citrus on the back end.
Sweet malt up front, immediately followed by a fist full of blackberries. Sweet and tart, overpowers the wheat and malts, unfortunately. Slight biscuit, no hops at all, slight wheat presence in the texture.
I'm about sick of blackberries by the end of the mug.
Disappointing as a wheat beer but a more complex malt profile or some more robust hop presence would have helped it a lot.
