I tried this on tap at the Revolution Brewpub in Chicago. $5 for a pint glass. If you're wondering why they picked this rather obscure berry it's because they are located in the Logan Square neighborhood of Chicago.

The beer had a slightly hazed red/amber color to it with a 1-finger white head that only lasted about a minute, but it left some pretty incredible lacing.

I never smelled or tasted a loganberry before, but pretty sure that's what dominated the smell as it was very berry-like but not overpoweringly so. More of a delicate touch with wheat in the background.

This is definitely not a lambic style fruit beer. It's more in line with the Shock Top varieties that Anhauser-Bush puts out. It's just a mild wheat beer with a slightly sweet, slightly tart berry flavor to it. There is also a mild bitterness so I'm sure there's some kind of citrus hop added to it as well. Not bad, but no wow factor either.

Light bodied with moderate carbonation. My server informed me that this beer is brewed with actual loganberries and not a syrup, so there is no cloying sweetness to it. The berry flavor is natural and not overdone.

The beer worked well with my dessert here, but still I wouldn't call it one of my favorite Revolution brews, but it's definitely worth a try.

Pours a slightly hazy burgundy with a playful purple head.

Some tart acidity, herbal, and floral.

Very light malt beverage with a slight tart acidic bite, mainly sweet malt.

Mouthfeel is thin and very much like a cup of tea.

Overall, a light summer brew, but definitely not my thing.

On tap at the brewery, quick review from written notes.

Reddish orange, from a distance it almost takes on a purplish tint. Head fades fast to a thin skim and ring around the edges. Clarity is lightly hazy.

Dull wheaty aroma, mild note of vague berry fruit.

Light taste of clean, tart fruit, fairly indistinct. Mellow wheatiness. Light feel, thin bodied with ample carbonation. Fairly refreshing, but somewhat dull overall. Sort of the average "brewpub fruited wheat beer". It may have a certain appeal to so-called 'non-beer drinkers' but not to the average beer geek.

Reminds me of a wheat breaking with a sour. Has a good fruity taste and goes down smooth.
