12 oz, drink by Jan 2010.
No head, great apricot/peach body, extremely hazy.
Sweet, natural fruit smell. Not sure I can pin it down as blackberry exactly, but not artificial or cloying. Some lemony wheat.
Gently tart fruit up front, middle and finish are great, citrusy straw and wheat. Mellow, rich yeastiness lingers. Almost imperceptible hops bittering on the finish - would benefit from more.
Creamy mouthfeel... on the path to lush but not there yet. Light to medium body.
Not mindblowing, but a good wit and good use of fruit. Wish it didn't need have natural flavor added. Two in the summer sampler is about right, not sure I'd session this or buy it in six-packs, but it's fine.
