look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

3.21/5  rDev -2.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 3

A - Pours a slightly cloudy dark straw with a brilliantly white large bubbled head, about 2 fingers. Dissipated quickly, no lacing, and only a few residual bubbles.

S - smell is fruity, lots of blackberry on the nose. spicy yeast bouquet, faint medicinal and metallic notes. malt shows up last in the nose with a bready biscuity undertone.

T - I am surprised by the taste, and I only say that as I usually drink this cold and fast for this review I let it warm up... its always a refreshing brew, but letting it warm up was actually detrimental to taste. Anywhoo... the warmed subject is a yeasty mess. usually yeast forward beer is not appealing. Blackberry is there in the front and lingers in the finish, but is not as prevalent as it was in the nose. Malt might be there but its a wash. I think the thing that attracts me to this brew is that it is cold, crisp, and tart... take the cold out and the crisp and tart qualities fall off real quick.

M - The mouthfeel on this to me is perfect for the style, crisp, dry, tart, ample carbonation, goes down quick... and when it is actually cold, I cannot stop going back for more.

O - I went into this review having drank this many times in the past. This is one of my favorite summer thirst quenching shelf beers. I usually don't give it the chance to warm up, but for the sake of the review I let it warm up from my fridge a little. The sub par taste really shines through when warm, still I think this is outstanding as a refreshing summer brew enjoyed cold, but compared to some of the great witbiers brewed locally to me, I do not think this is a good example of the style, blackberry or not.
