2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Although I like a good blackberry wheat, this was not it. Way more bitter than expected and not a good mix of sweet and bitter.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
One of the first darker blackberry ales that I’ve had. Very drinkable, medium body, thin head but strong blackberry finish. Not too sweet.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark amber in color, clear with a thin head. Fruit aroma was light more malt. Fruit flavor was also subtle. You get a slight blackberry and strong malt and alcohol flavors. Dry finish this was a pretty decent beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark pour, mouthfeel a bit on the fizzy side. Not a sour, but sour hints atop a reasonably well-balanced blackberry beer that while fruity, thankfully doesn’t veer into sweet syrup.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery/brewpub. Pours clear deep amber with light tan head. The aroma is modest in strength and pushes up dark berries that seem to be on the tart side along with raw organic dark berriness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draught at the brewery taproom in Lynnwood, Washington. Pours a clear dirty copper amber brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that dissipates to a clean top, thin ring and some spotty lacing. Aroma of Kool-aid berry that over power some of the wheat and any hop character. Taste is medium bodied, lightly carbonated with an excellent balance of multi-grain malt with wheat and blackberries. Finish is semi-sweet, a very nice crisp character with some light berry aftertaste that slowly disappears. Nicely done.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brownish red with a lasting beige head. Aroma of dark malt, light roast, chocolate, and fruity blackberry essence. Weirdly vinous, with a touch of sweet dark malt, blackberry and not a lot else. For all things considered I guess it finished pretty clean. Was over carbonated.

Dark mahogany pour; essentially headless and laceless by the time I got it to the table. Little on the nose but the berry--same goes for the palate. It’s not at all overpowering, it just doesn’t have any company.
