3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Lost Dog Cafe in Merrifield, VA.
Lightly hazy, peachy orange with a thin off-white head and fair lacing that slides down quickly.
Aroma of wheat, yeast, sugar and berries.
Taste of slightly tart fruit, wheat, yeast, berries and spice.
Medium/full body and low carbonization.
Actually OK for a blackberry beer. Clearly a wheat beer with a little spice, some gently tart and sweet fruit an just a hint of blackberries.

Pour is a cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma is some wheat malt and a bit of sour berry. Flavor is more of the wheat malt base up front then comes a bit of berry toward the end. Not enough of the berry for me to give this a better score. I guess the best to say about this is that they did not go the artificial route but the real berry flavor has faded.

Bomber from Wegman’s. Pours turbid orangy straw colored with 1-finger frothy off-white head. Nose was huge earthy blackberry, fructose, citrus. Tastes of huge, authentic blackberry, earthy fruit, citrus, and finishing sweetness. This isn’t as flavor-concentrated as the New Glarus red and tart, but as a fruit/berry beer, it is one of the best I have ever quaffed.
