The smell is very odd. Yes it smells like blackberries but almost too much, almost fake or a bit rotten. I can't quite place it.
Very light in color and fruity. Got it in a sampler pack and would probably never purchase this beer alone. It was worth a try but nothing special IMO.

this is underrated on BA, no doubt. pours a brightly bubbling golden color with a short white head. smell can be a little off-putting at first, with a decaying berry kind of weird fermenty smell. i think it smells like fresh summer beer, but thats just me. flavor is what its all about, and this tastes good. lots of light wheat malt and a healthy dose of fresh berries on the back end. not as all sweet, i think its an amazingly well balanced fruit beer. in a summer beer, mouthfeel is a huge factor, and i like the lighter body and active carbonation of this easy drinker. its one after the other all day with these. you need a beer like that sometimes. good stuff in my book.

Poured...well. like an average beer. Same for the color. I find it hard to say more.
Same for the smell, except for the blackberry aroma that comes through. Otherwise there is nothing worth mentioning.
This is a thin, (as in no body...even a Blue Moon has more substance) watery brew, with a slightly bitter aftertaste, which surprises me as I got no sense of hops with my first smell. I'd let this one go by. If your looking for fruit, try a Blue Point Blueberry.

Into a pint glass:
A: transparent yellow colored body yielded a small fizzy white head that appeared for ten seconds and died. No lacing was left. Rapidly rising carbonation was seen.
S: decent blend of the blackberries and the wheat, but nothing else.
T: the same
M: very light, extremely sessionable, high amount of carbonation felt
O: I like blackberries, but they seemed to be trying to "blend" in too well in this beer. Being a "fruit/vegetable beer," I thought they would come out a bit more. Still, I'm not sure if I would have this again?

I picked this up in a mixed six, enjoyed chilled from a wheat glass.
The color is very pale golden with thick 2 finger collar of wheat cloudy head, the bead is fine, retention is decent and carbonation is visible as clarity is good. The smell is kind of sweet, but not overly so with slight berry tinge and light malt aspect, not bad however it smells kind of like it may be extract like a fruit tea. The feel is very good with light body and mild sweetness and moderately high carbonation. The mild yeast and slightly clean malt feel is quenching which is nice.
The flavor starts out with a wheat taste which is slightly sweet which leads to the berry element which is balanced well here. The yeast is pretty clean which allows the wheat and fruit to be the prominent flavors. Overall I enjoyed this as a nice refreshing wheat.I give it better than average in most categories because it achieves the goal of the brewer - light quaffable wheat with a subtle berry flavor to compliment.
