Clear pour. Very, very light. Not surprising. Berry odor comes forth, but not very distinctive. The mouthfeel is extremely thin. The malt flavors are nice for a light wheat beer. Just enough to keep it interesting. For me, the Berry flavor isnt distinct enough. wish it had a more unique flavor. but the base beer is very nice.

Appearance - I drank from a can most recently but have seen the beer poured on tap as well, it looks pretty standard with a minimal head and light, wheat color
Smell - You would definitely know it was berry just by the smell
Taste - One of my favorite summer beers because of the blackberry, but it is not overpowering and does not make it a 'girly' beer
Mouthfeel - light, airy, perfect carbonation... but not unlike other similar summer brews
Overall - It is a staple and a go-to. Nothing incredibly unique but it would definitely be a treat for visitors and I enjoy it more than other 'fruity' beers

A: Pours a crystal clear medium golden yellow in color with light amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a two finger tall dense fizzy white head that slowly reduces to a thin film covering the entire surface of the beer with a thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of blackberries over a lighter note of wheat with just a hint of lemon/citrus.

T: Light to moderate flavors of tart blackberries (though an almost artificial flavor) with lighter flavors of wheat.

M: Light bodied with slightly more than moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: This beer is extremely easy to drink and would be very refreshing on a hot summer afternoon.

Golden straw colored crystal clear brew. Aroma has bready malt up front, a hint of soapiness.

Grainy wheat flavor dominates. Dry and Crisp. Blackberries are there in the aftertaste but don't lend any sweetness. Was hoping for some more darker fruit flavors and residual sweetness.

There is a bitter edge to the beer, sharp on the tongue. Cleans up nicely after itself. Seems like a good upgrade for the light beer drinking crowd, both for clean flavor profile as well as low ABV.

Thanks again to woodychandler for his large supply of beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a very pale yellow color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is strong of blueberries. Taste is also of blueberry, although not sweet, some wheat tartness, very easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is an enjoyable beer.
