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

I have to be honest and begin with a disclaimer: I hate Blackbeary Wheat. I really do. And, don't get me wrong, I really appreciate a good Long Trail Ale, as well as many of their other offerings.
A: Piss yellow & clear.
S: Kind of like Bud Light if you threw some berries in.
T: Same as above. Way too light.
M: Good enough.
O: Like I said, I'm biased. To me, Blackbeary Wheat is just the beer that flatlander college students at UVM drink to look cool because they can't stomach a Long Trail Ale. This seems to me a poor example of a poorly made, light beer masquerading as something refined and special. And, like I said, don't get me wrong, I had my Long Trail phase. And I would never turn down their Ale, Double Bag, or anything else--except for this. Try it for yourself, but if you are looking for a respectable, well-made craft beer, I'd look elsewhere.
