Just found sixers in my area
Appearance was a cloudy amber/orange color. Decent white head and slight lacing.
The smell wasnt as overwhelming as i expected. Slight berry scent, with typical fruity/flowery aromas
Taste was great. Fruity and Flowery on the front end and a little sour with a very pleasant hint of berry at the back end.
Mouthfeel was good. Nice balance of carbonation and smoothness. Goes down nice.
Drinkability is good. Not high in alcohol content and smooth on the way down...I could easily drink 3-4 of these in a sitting.
All around, a good new beer and a better option to the cherry wheat.

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.
