Pours yellow with a fizzy white head and minimal, spotty lacing.
Smells of sweet wheat, some berry essence, and light grain. Higher points for smell because it could have been over the top but isn't. Nothing in the scent (negative) that makes you pause before drinking.
Well, we can all read a label. Blackberry essence behind the sweet wheat flavors and light grain. Barely any bitterness, with a little tart edge in the finish. I will say that this could have been a disaster, but it is not. They put just enough berry in there to know it is there, but did not push it forward and over the top. Good job fellas.
Mouthfeel is thin and fizzy, but in a refreshing way. This is very drinkable, a hot weather beer that I see, if memory strikes me, in cooler weather seasons (maybe they are just cleaning out the cooler). Glad I tried one from a friend's fridge, as I don't think I would seek this out for purchase. But no the worst I've had either. It's ok.

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
