"more flavor and less boring than other HWs...notice, though, i said "less boring" and not good, or anything like that. not bad for a fruit beer. tart, aromatic and refreshing, but simple and a little dull."

The best flavored wheat I have ever drank, sadly it is no longer in existence. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

1 from a 6-pack purchased on 08/01/1997 from a liqour store in Couer díalene, Idaho. Tasting scribble notes as follows: Light mouth feel, lots of sugar-coated berries, dark gold look, light finish. My tasting notes were a bit shallow in my youth....

troopie (2291) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - JUL 19, 2009
Bottle that Hennie had in his cellar. Aroma of day old bread. Poured yellow with medium white head that dissipated rapidly. Flavour was mostly blackberry, with a bit of wheat. Almost no finish. Glad they donít make this any more.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUN 22, 2009
Pale yellow pour, big fluffy white head and zero lacing. Aroma is mostly wheat but with a light waft of blackberry. Ditto the flavor, though slightly more berry was present. This was one I didnít mind drinking back when I was a poor college student and it was very cheap and better than BMC products.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 24, 2007
Poured a clear straw-golden hue with a small white head. Nose of stale malts, wheat, and berries. When Henryís was legit, this was a super value.

The blackberry flavor is separated from the rest of the flavors. It seemed as if they were competing against each other. I liked the idea of a blackberry for a fruit beer, but this didnít work for HW. Nice try though...

oldrtybastrd (3223) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 28, 2005
Pours a hazy golden yellow color. Aromas of wheat bread and berries. Flavor is sweet berry and a little yeasty. Flavor is to sweet for me, didnít care for this at all.

Awesome try at making a truely Northwest beer. Blackberries which is a weed here are perfect. But they just did not have any flavor to this beer. They missed the berry flavor andftoo much malt. But I love the attempt
