COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

MadRobin (2392) - Silver Spring, USA - JUL 17, 2015
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 (8529) - 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.
