2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft... RBSG 2014... Lightly hazy yellow pour with a small, creamy, white head that never fully dissipates. Smells like pale grains and blackberry jam. Light bodied and über creamy with lazy carbonation. The flavor is mostly watery and grainy with a light blackberry nuance. Crisp, thin, refreshing finish.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Flight pour on tap at the brewery (Kirkwood, MO). Pours a pale straw hue, a bit of yellow glow on the edges with frothy whitish head stays as a spidery film, nice lacing overall. Aromas are blackberry syrup, a touch sweet with bready malts, gentle flaked wheat and earthiness. Sweeter juice elements provide the fruit, dominate. Initial is lighter end of the fold, some Koolaid berry, touches of sweetness. Gentle sugary fruit, touches of bread and flaked wheat. A touch taart but artificial. Backend has a bit of a filmy coating from the blackberry sweetener. Not good. Finish is a bit dry, bitter and odd. It’s drinkable but it’s not good and not representative of even a middling fruit beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2013 On tap at the 28/65 Brewhouse. Served a hazy light golden color with a small head and no real lacing. Aroma of citrus, mild fruit with wheat and just a bit of malt sweetness. Taste of citrus some malt sweetness and a subtle blackberry sweetness. Has a mild bitterness and the finish is quite clean. Fairly light body, crisp and refreshing. A pleasant summer beer that goes down easy.
