3.25/5 rDev +4.5%
A: slight hazy; straw colored; less than a 1 finger white head that receded quickly to a thin ring; no lacing;
S: sour, with a little blackberry in the background;
T: I was surprised at the amount of sweet blackberry that came through; balanced combination of light malt and hops behind it; very light bitterness on the finish;
M: light bodied; moderate carbonation;
O: unexpectedly good for a fruit beer, although admittedly the bar is set rather low;

3.59/5 rDev +15.4%
12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass.
Appearance: Pours a bright gold with a very slight hazy character. Not as hazy as most wheat beers I've had. Tiny white head that is gone fast. Not much lacing at all.
Aroma: It smells like a cell phone. Just kidding. The nose is pretty subtle on this one. The blackberry is way in the background. It smells clean and slightly sweet, and vaguely grassy, but it's mostly neutral.
Taste: Nice, clean, light wheat ale taste with blackberry sweetness on the finish. Very easy drinking, light, and refreshing. The blackberries are more of an accent on the finish than an overwhelming presence, which is probably good. Like the ad copy says, the blackberry is mostly noticeable on the finish.
Mouthfeel: It has the depth of an easy-drinking summer beer, which it is. Not a sipper. This is a beer for BBQ's, hot afternoons, ballgames and other assorted fun weekend warrior goings-on.
Overall: You've probably got a friend who likes dumb fruit macros like Bud Light Lime and whatever Raspberita is and whathaveyou. I'd say hand them one of these; it's approachable and fun and has some nice crafty appeal. It's nothing mind-blowing but it's a fine day beer.
