An auburn and orange coloring was off the mark for a typical wheat and the head was fluffy but disappated quickly.

The scent carried more barley and less fruit with a caramelesque malt and a grainy bran. A deeply hidden earthy blueberry or I guess blackberry aroma was present.

For a wheat there seemed a lot of malt with an earthy fruit flavor. The Blackberry was slightly metallic and more gourdish. The ever present clove, banana and yeast flavors that accompany a wheat beer were not detected.

The feel was light, airy but had an astringent texture.

Continuing the taste of summer, the Country Boys introduce a fruit-forward taste that hinges on blackberries for their fruit-friendly "Right Good" wheat base.

Right Good (blackberry) wheat starts with a strong gold appearance with orange-ish back light. A pillowy sheet of ivory foam retains half the session while its light lace adorns the glass with random patterns.

Wheat beer through and through, the beer's early aromas are of berry fruits with a bready and grainy backdrop. Its light acidity balances the malt and fructose with the absence of hop bitterness or citrus bite. Its the distinct blackberry taste that gives the beer a fuller fruit taste without overwhelming the palate with sweetness. Its subtle taste keeps the beer fresh and crisp in taste from start to finish. Ending slightly spicy wit pepper, clove and herbal notes- it offer slight complexity to go along with the berries.

As a standard American Pale Wheat Ale with blackberry additions, the taste is mild and refershing but in the end, the wheat character is timid, the yeast contributions are slight and the fruit is thin with light astringency- it simply suffers a similar fate as many popular fruited wheat summer ales.

A: Pours a clear, pale gold with a puffy, creamy white head that slowly recedes, leaving a moderate amount of lacing in the glass.

S: Soft, subtle aromas of minerals, ripe blackberries, heavy cream, straw, grain, vanilla, wheat toast, and mild, lemony hops are present on the nose.

T: Notes of blackberries, wheat toast, grain, straw, grass, minerals, vanilla, heavy cream, biscuits, crackers, and herbs wash across the palate. The finish is dry, clipped, and mildly fruity with a combination of blackberry, mineral, cream, cracker, and mild hop flavors most pronounced.

M: Light in body and relatively dry. Carbonation is crisp and firm. Very drinkable.

O: This is not a bad pale wheat ale with fruit. I appreciate the fact that real blackberries were used instead of blackberry flavoring, but the fact of the matter is that the blackberry flavor is very mild and subtle. So, what one is left with is a very competently executed pale wheat ale with a nice blackberry aroma, but only a hint of blackberry flavor. While this is not necessarily a bad thing, for me, this ale would have been better if the fruit flavor was more pronounced.
