   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 10/20
ben4321 (3846) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 30, 2012
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
Overall Impression: 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.

light brew with adequate blackberry favor not over powered by sweetness. a bit of soft seltzer in the mouthfeel. refreshing.

mansquito (3336) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 10, 2010
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.

Pwn3d (1962) - Manhattan, New York, USA - APR 2, 2010
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.

Grandpa (327) - Verona, New York, USA - APR 26, 2007
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.

JoeMcPhee (8357) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 10, 2006
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.

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 4, 2005
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.
