3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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.

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.
