3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Another bottle from Liquor Barn in Redding, CA. Hazy, light amber color with a moderate white head. Aroma is almost perfumey blackberry; perhaps wheat and citrus as well. Medium body and creamy carbonation. Flavor is tart berry over wheat. It’s tart, but there is some sugar. Finish is clean. Pretty decent fruit beer.

Bomber poured a clear gold with a small lingering white head. Aromas of wheat, yeast, light blackberry and light white bread. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of wheat, blackberry, light honey and light straw with a crisp fruity finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - blonde pour without an expected purple tinge. Aroma is big Berry jam and a touch syrupy, as is the flavor. Pleasant in those aspects, though slightly artificial.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by my friend Ken. Pours blonde with a thick white head and a massive blackberry aroma. There is a medium-bodied wheat flavor with a lot of blackberry, especially at the finish. Refreshing and tasty.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Slightly hazy amber beer with a nice off-white head. Sweet blackberry aroma with some light malt. Blackberry flavor with light malt/wheat. Medium bodied. Refreshing. Blackberry, wheat and light earth/spice lingers. Fruit is done well - not syrupy, clunky, or anything off about it at all.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle pours hazy yellow, mediocre frothy white head, and with little carbonation. Slight berry aroma, blackberries, boysenberry, and perhaps some raspberry. Initial taste is of a somewhat unsweetened berry, but it quickly turns to a light sour bitterness. Slight peppery flavor on the finish. Mouthfeel was decent but never really got a decent fruity flavor in this one.

Thanks to Hayduke for this one. Pour is hazy golden with a small fizzy head that quickly disappears. A very sweet fragrance of blackberry that is syrupy. flavor is soft blackberry with some wheat crispness. This is as easy a drinking beer as there is.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Liquor Barn in Redding, CA too. Pours a straw golden with a nice soapy head. Aroma is rather light with hints of blackberry essence and sweet wheat malt. Wheat up front followed by light soft blackberry and then more wheat. Maybe some light yeasty esters. A little off flavor too. Light and smooth with soft carbonation. Actually not bad really, but I like fruit beers more than the next man.

A fantastic fruity aroma, hint of wheat. Wow, this has some blackberry in it for sure. Quite wheaty, very cloudy. A not bad fruit beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This fruit wheat pours a light gold color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is wheat and blackberries, slightly sweet. A light to medium bodied fruit wheat beer. Malts are fruity and sweet, grassy and grainy. The blackberry flavors are prevalent, but not overly sweet. There is a smoky flavor to the aftertaste. Hops are slightly bitter and floral. Its weird to have a fruit beer with a smoky finish. The smokiness in only in the finish. Strange beer, the smokiness sort of removes the light and refreshing aspect to this beer. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is crisp and dry. Aftertaste is smoky.
