COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A light and spritzy saison. Brewed with pale malt and unmalted wheat. Fermented with a blend of yeast including brett and steeped with whole blackberries making a refreshing and flavorful summer ale.

Growler. Pours a slightly hazy dark gold body with a tinge of color from the blackberries under a fizzy white head. The nose is pretty nice, rather light on the blackberry, but in balance with the light hay and wheat from the base Saison. Some light yeast influence. The flavor is delicate and airy with a light, but natural tasting, blackberry component. Some nice yeast and soft wheat, fairly dry despite the addition of the fruit. Light bodied with soft fizzy carbonation and a short fruity finish. Pretty decent fruit beer, the blackberry flavor is really nice and the sweetness is kept in check really well.

On tap at HOTB. Mild bitter berry nose, semisweet with some muskiness. Light golden amber clear with light haze. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Starts sweet with mild pale malt and wheat, nice berry flavor and a bit of bitterness. Smooth sweet fruity after.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4909) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 11, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2013 They added brett to this batch and it worked well. +++ Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a murky pinkish color - like pink grapefruit juice - with a small foamy white head that left no lacing. The aroma was dry and bretty with a bit of yeastiness and some vague berry. The flavor was dry, bretty, musty and yeasty with notes of pepper and faint tart berries. Long dry brett, pepper and berry finish. Moderately full bodied. Interesting.

jredmond (5300) - Manhattan, New York, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Draft at Misconduct Tavern with Pj and Pat. Pours a light, hazy golden body with thin frothy white lacing. Aroma is wheat and muted berries. Mouthfeel is medium to light with notes of fruit, wheat, and a lager graininess. I wasn’t personally a big fan of this one.

hopdog (8867) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 7, 2012
On tap at Capone’s. Poured an amber color with a small sized head. This one was berries all the way around in the aromas and tastes. Definitely a fruit beer as berries where the dominate characteristic. Some what sweet with a very light berry tartness.

PhillyCraft (3184) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2012
On tap, pours a clearish amber color. Small head and lacing. Aromas of raspberry and blackberry. The mouth on this was very light, almost lagery. Had a pleasant finishing sweetness but lacked an overall character. More of a session wheat ale with light fruits coming through. Ok, but I expect more from Bullfrog.

DeputyAndy (632) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Draft at Capone’s. Poured an amber color with a little head. I get very little blackberry out of this. Very malty for a saison, doesn’t have that dry spritzy taste. Finishes very heavy for the style.

Damico (2557) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Pours golden amber somewhat clear with an off white head. Aroma is too light for me, some fruitiness and malts. The flavor bring light sweet berry fruit with a bit of more bitter than expected saison yeast. Nog rrally any funk present with a sweet and yeasty malt ending.

jercraigs (7782) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2012
2012-08-17. Dark yellow body has just a hint of a pink or purple hue to it, small off-white head. Flavour is a bit odd, the fruity character seems to clash a bit with the underlying grainy malt profile. Average plus bodied palate. Mild aroma of light fruit and light saison funk with muted alcohol touches. Okay. Odd. On tap at Bullfrog, Williamsport
