3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pure white head. Body of straw with lots of bubbles coming up in the glass. Aroma of Acai berries can be picked up with an ever so slight yeast character to it. For those that haven’t’ had them, Acai berries taste very similar to blackberries crossed with a little apricot. Flavor of this beer is very clean and the fruit is very muted, at best. Carbonation bite. Refreshing.

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2009 22oz Bomber - Re-Rated
I was wrong and without a good sample size this brew need the extra taste to get the Acai beery flavor. Dry berry flavor and slight tart more like a off sour beer. Very faint the flavor is for the berry.

Aroma: Wheat malt aroma with very little else.
Appearance: Golden in color, Clear with a light head.
Flavor: Nice wheat malt flavor the berries did not come through and what came out was bland flavored.
Palate: Dry Finish, with a Bland Mouthfeel.
Overall: I was truly disappointed in this brew. I will buy a bottle when I find one and re rate then but I was hoping this was going to have some decent fruit flavor. Very bland.

bottle, pours light gold, thin white head and a noticable presence of lots of carbonation. Light wheat aroma with notes of acai berry and blueberry. Very pleasant. Sweet wheat and light malt body with a rich and full berry finish that is not artificial at all. Highly drinkable, with a very crisp mouthfeel.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours very pale yellow, some bubbles. The smell is off and pretty funky. The berries do come through, fruity pebbles for sure. Light watery body. Not good. The only redeeming quality here is the palette lingering of the berries is slightly pleasing.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Poured clear bright golden with a moderate cap of white head. The aroma picked up a soft cross between blue and blackberries over a dusty, wheat and cereal base.. about what I was expecting, but no more. The flavor had a primarily wheaty base with sweet berries surrounding.. dry and dusty overall complexion, decently balanced against the fruit.. the texture was too light and watery to really be taken seriously.
