A Belgian wheat beer brewed with a touch of rye and a massive addition (over 1,000 lbs. per 40-barrel batch) of plump, ripe blackberries grown by Agriberry in Hanover County, Hardywood Virginia Blackberry offers an assertive fruit character while remaining extremely refreshing. Ruby hued with the bright aroma of fresh bramble berries, this beer’s pleasantly gentle body leads to a rather dry, rounded fruit finish, making it irresistible on a hot summer day.

Bottle. Pours peach colored. White head. Nose/taste of blackberry, peach, light berry fruit, rye and dry toast. Lighter bodied. Refreshing summer drink.

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.

A good beer with a nice balance the blackberry is not overwhelming. Good for a fruit beer.

DocLock (8422) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 6, 2014
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.

Westchesterco (1252) - mclean, Virginia, USA - OCT 19, 2014
Poured from a bottle it is a cloudy orange with a frothy head. The aroma is sour and the taste is a sour blackberry with a real bitter finish

Iphonephan (4123) - McLean, Virginia, USA - OCT 19, 2014
From a 22 oz bottle shared at home. Pours a hazy copper with a thick off white head. Fruity nose. Flavors of biscuit with blackberry. Smooth, clean finish.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Serving: 750 ml. bottle from Trader Joe’s Reston. It pours a murky pinkish red with a short lived off white head. Kind of ugly looking. Notes of dirt and blackberry in the nose. Earth, blackberry, yeast, wheat, and grain on the tongue. Seems muddled. A bit heavy and lifeless on the tongue. This one didn’t really do anything for me.

hopdog (9642) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 9, 2014
On tap at Capone’s. Poured an amberish color with a smaller sized head. Definitely a berry beer but not overpowering or overly sweet. Wheat there too.

Very crisp with moderate blackberry flavor. Finish is very crisp, with berry aftertaste lingering. A very light and well-balanced beer.
