2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Location: Draft at Spitzer’s Corner, 12/29/12
Aroma: This one has a light nose of sweet malts and yeasty notes, the blackberry is very subtle
Appearance: It pours a clear reddish color with a small head and some light lace
Flavor: The flavor is mildly sweet, and pretty exactly what you’d expect from the nose
Palate: This one has a light body to it, feels somewhat watery, and has a fizzy carbonation/finish
This was kind of an odd one. It was a blackberry wheat without much blackberry or wheat. It’s not terrible, but it is rather light, thin, underwhelming, and just lacks much of a punch of any kind.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
At Spitzer ($6) (I did not buy this my friend did, even after I told her not to and then she proceeded to regret it afterward): Anyway, it pours a hazy amber peach color. Darker than would be expected. White thin head. Aroma of fruit. Blackberry not distinct. Kind of watery. Fruity. My friend thought it tasted like popcorn jellybeans. I don’t think she was that far off. Better than other blackberry beers I have had, but nothing exemplary.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the brewery after checking out the Frying Pan. Pour is very hazy... orange with a reddish tint. Taste is pretty plain, wheat and a faint tart fruitiness.. couldn’t really pinpoint blackberries. Not good at all.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A clear, dark amber brew with a small, quick fading head. The berry taste and aroma were both faint. My initial reactoin was a sour fruit taste in the front of the mouth followed by the hops. The hops overwhelmed the very subtle fruit.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Cloudy yellow beer with a thick white head. Aroma of raspberry, wheaty spice, bready yeastiness. A bit too sweet and thin-bodied. Not enough fruit and what is there is kind of candyish. Meh.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Chelsea Piers.
Cloudy yellow. Light creamy head. Fresh blackberry nose along with caramel pastilles. Incredibly light bodied. The blackberry tone is nice, and does not take over. A refreshing beer.
