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!

2.35/5  rDev -24.2%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Poured from bottle into pint glass

Appearance – A very light golden/straw color with a very light white head. The head faded very fast giving way to almost no lacing.

Smell –There is some very light wheat aromas mixed with a little bit of berry aroma as well. There is also the presence of some less pleasant skunky and metallic aromas as well.

Taste- The taste is of light breadiness up front, with light what flavors mixed in. There is a very light sweetness in the middle of the beer, which seems to diminish again toward the end. At the end there is some of the skunkiness detected in the nose as well as a presence of blackberry flavors. The skunk and blackberry linger on the tongue and leave a somewhat unpleasant aftertaste.

Mouthfeel – It has a very light body with a medium level of carbonation. Right for the style, but nothing really too great.

Overall – Not really my kind of beer. It really doesn’t have anything I found all that enjoyable. The taste and aroma were nothing all that pleasurable, the taste left a rather unpleasant aftertaste in the mouth and the mouthfeel was really quite bland.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Poured it into a traditional wheat beer glass (that was pointless). Although I do enjoy lighter session ales, I bought this expected it to be an unfiltered wheat and was disappointed in that respect. It almost has the look, taste and feel of a cider, though not quite as fruity in the taste aspect.

Although it's look and feel aren't great, especially if you are expecting a traditional wheat, it doesn't taste that bad. It's light and fresh, and has almost no aftertaste. As long as you know this going in, you can adjust your expectations. Could easily put down twice as many of these than a normal wheat ale.

3.15/5  rDev +1.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A - clear straw yellow in color, slight amount of head

S - fruity hint, kind of a musky smell of old pizza.. kinda weirded out right now, definitely a bit bready

T - a very light fruit taste.. reminds me of raspberry seltzer. you can taste more of the wheat than the berry, which is not necessarily a bad thing

M - very light and crisp, very carbonated like a fresh seltzer

O - not a bad beer for warm weather.. kind of light flavored, but that's good for a session ale.
