An American wheat ale brewed with black raspberries and blueberries. Served in a tulip.

A. Mellow brick-like amber with a small white head.

S. Mild blueberry in the aroma, along with a hint of wheat.

T. Taste is dominated by slightly earthy, tannic blueberry, with light hop bitterness and a breath of wheat. This is crisp with very little sweetness.

M. Between light and medium-bodied, very little carbonation.

O. I wasn't too impressed by this one. I couldn't taste the raspberries at all, and the base beer seemed much too neutral.
