12 oz bottle won at a WHALES Homebrewing Club meeting - thanks guys! Poured into an Ithaca Beer Company pint glass.
A - Pours crystal clear pale yellow with one finger of foam that dissipates quickly. Lacing is nonexistent.
S - a bit of wheat malt aroma, not much else
T - very clean tasting, with a very thin body and almost no residual sweetness. Extremely dry finish. Blackberry flavor doesn't poke through very much. No noticable hop flavor or bitterness.
M - Nicely carbonated, and very crisp.
D - So dry that it leaves you thirsty for more.
Overall, a good, clean summer beer. Would have liked to see a little flavor, be it from the blackberries, yeast, wheat malt... just something.

A: Fizzy head that fades almost no lacing. Must be filtered as this is perfectly transparent.
T: Sweet blackberries and grainy. Very little hop or malt presence.
M: Very light and sweet.
O: Keeping in mind that I do not like fruit beers; this one does what its set out to do. I could easily drink 5 of these without feeling a thing as it doesn't even feel like 4% abv. On a hot day, this would be extremely refreshing.

As far as flavored wheat beers go this one was almost too good. Long Trail has definitely nailed this recipe. Very good as a post skiing or hiking beer, or even for after eating. I suggest it be served around 40 degrees. It seems to be as good out of the tap/ in a glass as it is in a bottle, so don't worry about that, but make sure you haven't had a dark beer before this (it diminishes the taste). Really one of the better flavored beers I've ever had and 100% worth taking sip of if you're just coming from a fun outdoor sport
