Opened 12 Fluid Ounce bottle, poured into Nonic glass.
Pours a light cream head with little retention; turns to lace atop a golden brown hazy brew.
First smell is of dark berries and banana; blackberry smell overrides the banana smell; Berry taste is also prominent on palate. I don't taste any spice, but the wheat is pretty prominent.
Mouth feel is nice, with good bubbles that don't attack in a harsh manner. Pretty smooth finish. Would I have another? While I'm not a huge fan of fruit brews, this is well balanced. Lightly sweet and great flavor. Sure, pour me another.

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.
