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!

A: Fizzy head that fades almost no lacing. Must be filtered as this is perfectly transparent.

S: Blackberries

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
