Anytime I see a Sam Adams beer with a fruit reference I kind a cringe inside. So many bad examples out there. This one took on a normal-esque beer appearance. Light amber in color, thin 1/5" head on it, off white. A little bit of wheat haze, not much. Aroma was decently juicy in the berry department. Wheat behind that.

Taste had more fruit than wheat, more sweet than wheat. More beat than wheat. . .

Its not terrible, but its not good either. They did a decent job with the berries but kinda lost it after that.

Gave this beer a higher rating because it was one of the first craft beers I ever had and really enjoyed.
