Fingers got dyed with this one on 12/1/2004. 16-oz. pour at the Boston location ia shaker glass.

Lazy, light, thin sheeting of foam to start, with little to no lacing and very little stick throughout – somewhat desultory. Hazy, straw-yellow hue with some slow action bubbling within – had expected something at least verging more to the umber or orange side of things. The berry and wheat rubbed plainly on the nose, with following notes of anise, clover, and just the slightest bit of hop juice. On the mouth, eh, nothing to sing the praises of – berry was present, but not in abundance, while the wheat/soap flavor seemed almost to overwhelm the fruit. A slightly tart snap at the end lent the pour just a hint of bite, but again, all in a somewhat monotonous manner. On the whole, not great, but not bad.
