4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a clear pinkish amber body under a small fizzy off-white head that faded to a thin ring. The nose is slightly sweet and naturally fruity with juicy blackberry and a slight caramel sweetness. The flavor is one of the most natural and juicy fruit beers that I’ve had in a very long time. It’s like chewing on fresh blackberries. A nice base of honeysuckle and light-caramel sweetness that makes it very dessert like. Medium bodied with a slight cling on the finish and slightly active fizzy carbonation. One of the best fruit beers I’ve had in a long time.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Velootje in Ghent, the owner of which received it as a gift straight from the brewer, apparently. Thin but stable off-white head, deep and warm pinkish orange colour. Aroma of stewed pear, yoghurt, buttermilk, even a touch ureum, soapy wheat, sour cream and indeed berries, but hard to say if they are blackberries or something else. Very fruity taste, estery, lots of sweet-sour berries but hints of passion fruit and orange too, soft carbo, smooth and somewhat oily, thinnish mouthfeel, wheaty, a bit soapy and grainy, drying tartness in the end (berry juice effect) while sweet maltiness lingers; hops are only indirectly at work. Interesting artisanal fruit beer, perhaps lacking a bit in complexity and body.

On tap at Mellow Mushroom. Pours a murky pink. Aroma of berries, but it almost seems to me to be more blueberry than blackberry. Perhaps my nose is off. Subtle blackberry and wheat flavor.

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.
