Unfiltered draft sampler at Kraftbrau. I see this is the third blackberry beer Kraftbrau’s made. Well, the way they do it, it seems like a nice fit. It’s still light like a pils, slightly hazy, but without any off-putting fruity tinge. Has a light blackberry smell. In taste the fruit is equal to the malts, and despite a slightly syrupy mouthfeel, a nice note of hoppiness floats through. That’s hard to do well in a fruit ale, never mind a fruit lager.

The Blackberry Pilsner pours out lightish yellow/orange with not much head on top. The smell was lightly malted with blackberrys on the edge, but not very strong.

The taste was essentially a lightly malty, smooth pilsner with an abrasive, and somewhat fake tasting blackberry layered over it. I don't know how much fruit they used, or if they used real fruit, but this seemed off, and a bit cloying.

The mouthfeel is average for teh style, and the drinkability is knocked down because the beer was difficult to drink, and wasn't particularly good for its category, so a rough potential rebuy rating.
