3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at pub. Bright pink-amber pour, creamy thin white head. Significant earth in nose, almost manure, wheat, and a faint but skin-heavy and realistically refreshing grape and sweet blueberry. Awesome for a fruit-wheat beer, best I’ve had. Flavor is similar, crisp fruit and wheat through the flavor, perhaps a faint bit metallic but still very light, dry through the finish, and amazingly un-syrupy.

I tohught this beer was very good. Dark almost purple color and a sweet nose. Flavor was slightly sweet, not overpowering. It was very drinkable and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2006 The problem with so many fruit beers is to me twofold. First what fruit flavors they have end up tasting too artificial. Secondly the fruit sweetness dominates so much that you can not taste the underlying beer. This beer succeeds in avoiding both of these pitfalls. Sampled on draft at the brewery this beer poured a purplish caramel color with a small white head. There is a strong sweet berry aroma. The flavor is strong and fruity but not too sweet. The fruits taste very real. There is a nice underlying wheat beer flavor that is not overwhelmed by the sweet fruity elements. This beer works very well.

Im not a huge fan of these berry/fruit/wheat beers, but this one was pretty decent for what it was. I saved it for after my lunch- kinda like for desert. Pours a murky deep pink,/light purple, with an ok head that fades. Aroma is very pungent and sweet with lots of berries. Blueberry, blackberry etc. Flavor is pretty smooth overall with lots of fruit, and a good smooth malt profile. Finishes pretty easy without being too tart.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2008 [draft - 10th Annual PA Microbrewers Fest, Pennsylvania Brewing Co. - Pittsburgh, PA] When I called the brewer, they said it was and amber wheat beer, but I don’t know exactly what this is. So like the other beers I’ve added, this one’s open to corrections if anyone knows anything about it. Poured a semi-dark amber color with a thin white head. Strong berry aroma, a good combination of blackberry and blueberry, with a nice wheaty backbone. Sweetness was one of the first things that I tasted, with a nice wheat followup and a crisp and sweetly bitter finish. I definitely would like to find out more about this one.
