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 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.

Alengrin (3675) - BELGIUM - NOV 2, 2015
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.

hershiser2 (1570) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 14, 2015
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.

MadRobin (2504) - 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
