A light summertime beer with (as the description says) a hint of blackberry flavor. It's not objectionable - not too sweet or artificial-tasting, which is about the best I can say. Meh.

Grew up with this beer in the summer time so I may be biased, but the smell of blackberry wheat just brings great memories, I get excited every time I see it on the shelf. This is a must try for any beer advocate member, it looks are not the best but it’s taste and smell are one of a kind.

Pours light yellow. Thin head. Smells like Miller Light with blackberry flavoring. Yep...tastes just like it smells. The blackberry tastes very artificial. No complexity whatsoever.

Long Trial has rereleased Blackbeary Wheat for a limited time. Nice to have this lightly berry flavored summer brew for another go-round.

The appearance has a transparent yellow colored body that yielded a small fizzy white head that appeared for ten seconds and died. No lacing was left. Rapidly rising carbonation was seen. The smell had a decent blend of the blackberries and the wheat, but nothing else. The taste was exactly the same. On the palate, well, hmmm....it was very light, extremely sessionable, and there was an extremely high amount of carbonation that was felt. Overall, I like blackberries, but they seemed to be trying to "blend" it in too well in this beer. Being a "fruit/vegetable beer," I thought they would come out a bit more.

Wanted to like this, but couldn't. Pours clear golden with a quick-faded white ring. Aroma is way overdone berry additive. Does not smell natural. Flavor is similar if slightly better with a little bit of malt. Watery but palatable.
