Missing a bit of extra berry in the finish but overall a solid beer, super refreshing.

UPDATED: AUG 21, 2015 04/18/2012: Sampled on tap at the brewpub. Very pale yellow color, even lighter than their lager with thin white foam and LOTS of lace. Strong berry aromas, some mild wheat, no real hops or yeast characteristics. Flavor was predominantly tart blackberry as well, neutralizing everything else. Strong carbonation, light body but with a well-rounded wheat-bread mouthfeel, long-lasting fruity aftertaste. A nice, refreshing summer beer.
UPDATE 08/20/2015: tasted again as part of a sampler flight, on draft. I didnít like it as much this time. Not sure if the recipe has changed, or my palate, but it was simply too syrupy sweet. To itís credit, the berry fruit flavour tastes real, not artificial as with so many competing fruit beers, but still just a weak wine cooler effect overall for me. Still a crowd pleaser though, so I get the pragmatic business decision.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sample at beer fest. Poured a pale yellow color with a faint white head that went quick. Aroma was great. Blacckberries, grass, floral notes. Flavor went downhill from there. Tasted like throw up. Something didnít balance right. Faint blackberries, bread, metallic flavors. Below average beer, and I was looking forward to because I love blackberries. Very dissapointed.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at STL Heritage Festival - Pours hazy yellow with a white head. The aroma has lots of blackberries and smooth wheat. Medium smooth body with restrained carbonation. The taste is much like the aroma with a nice amount of blackberries and it is lightly sour. The finish adds a little bit of spice. This was a nice fruit beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at The Highlands Brewery. Pour is a pale gold with a white head. Aroma is decent. Flavor is ok with only a fraction of the fruit there. Its more grainy than anything. One of ten in the sampler, not bad.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft sample at the brewpub. Pours a clear, dull, flat-looking yellow-gold color with almost no head. Aroma is mostly comprised of what smells like blackberry extract, or maybe cough syrup, or maybe candy, with only a hint of wheat. Flavor of blackberry-flavored medicine, minerals, wheat, and pale malts. Light-bodied, with low carbonation and a flat, medicinal mouthfeel. Seems like they took a boring wheat ale and shot some blackberry extract into it.
