Notes/Commercial Description:
This brew combines 2-Row Pilsen malt, a hint of Crystal malt, and of course, plenty of malted wheat. A hint of blackberry at the finish makes this beer a real thirst quencher! For the health conscious, Blackbeary Wheat has less than 6 grams of carbs and only 110 calories per bottle!

DATE REVIEWED: June 7, 2014... GLASSWARE: Lindemans flute... OCCASION: Gatsby 2012....bring it on, Baz!...APPEARANCE: crystal clear, faintly tinted in yellow, with rapid effervescence; thick yet bubbly white head...odd, misshapen lacing... AROMA: pungent, offish skunky funk that suggests a fruity failure--not saying any more than this... PALATE: soft, bubbly, thin and drinkable--almost refreshing, but more like weakly flavored water... TASTE: mostly acquiescent light beer malt tendencies, with a tinge of blackberry--rather flat... OVERALLL: a weak, cleansing, warm weather wheat that doesn't distinguish itself; such a slight turn of berry that only faintly offers flavor, and what is offered is annoying....

Pours clear yellow into a pint glass. This is now announced as discontinued, so this is my farewell bottle. No noticeable hop or malt profile, but the blackberries remain restrained and it finishes dry and crisp. Ideal for a hot summer day. Very drinkable and refreshing. If we are honest, this beer, at 110 calories and 4% abv, is light years better than any mass produced light beer. It's better than some new session IPAs too and many other fruit/wheat craft beers. Sadly it lacks the hops to sell anymore and so must be retired. I wonder what will take its place as a bridge beer.
