I couldnít wait to taste this ale, but it was a disappointment largely because even though it says it is brewed with blackberries and raspberries, I just donít taste it. It has a pleasant color and aroma, mellow taste, but not that really distinct berry taste or the tartness described. I believe the Sam Adams Blackberry Witbier has more of a blackberry essence flavor, even though it isnít a strong berry taste either. Itís a pleasant ale, just not fantastic or what I was hoping for.

12 oz bottle from the seasonal mixed 12. Ours a translucent ruby color with a thin purplish white head. Aroma is of wheat and a subtle blackberry. Taste is loaded with blackberries and wheat. Some flowering notes as well. Good carbonation and very refreshing. This is going to be a good one for those warm summer nights.

Sampled at GABF 2012 with mRO. Pours an amber body with light head. Aroma is bland fruity malts. Mouthfeel is thin with notes of bland fruit, lager, and malts. I wanted so much more, but you left me there stranded in the rain, Blue Moon.

beerguy101 (5319) - Newark, California, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Sampled on 10/11/2012 at GABF. This fruit beer pours a medium amber gold color from the tap. Large sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, with some blackberry. A light to medium bodied fruity beer. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are herbal. Some blackberry flavors, but not all that tart. Decent carbonation. Nice dry finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Tap at Flying Saucer, Sugar Land.
Pours an average amber with a nose of blackberry and light flower. Flavor is blackberry and sweet bread. Tingly on the tongue. Donít bake this one just yet.

The blackberry admirably avoids being syrupy but unfortunately thereís not a lot else going on here. Maybe aim for blackberry cobbler next time to give it some bite.

nearbeer (4029) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 8, 2012
Draft sample at Casual Pintís tasting event. Clear amber with a purple-red tinge and a lasting spit of foam on top. Mild nose is cracked wheat and a touch of blackberry syrup. Taste is pretty much the same, except even less assertive and more artificial tasting. Light body is watery and has medium carbonation. Pretty well balanced, with not much else going for it. Came in third of the three contestants for my vote in the new fall seasonal running.
