Dogbrick (7575) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 25, 2009
Sample at the brewpub. The beer pours a hazy golden color with a thin white head that disappears quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Mild berry aroma with a bit of malt. Light body with a tart blackberry flavor underscored by an off artificial sweetness. The finish is short and fruity with a mild wheat aftertaste. Below average overall.

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

deyholla (6481) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Sampled from the tap at the brewpub. Pours a hazy light gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of sweet blackberry with some wheat for the backbone. Flavor has a good amount of sweet blackberry with some strong wheat backing.

phaleslu (6204) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 18, 2011
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.

TheAlum (5530) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2014
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.

Strykzone (4781) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Sampled at Heritage Fest. Dingy gold. Some berry arona but not really enough. Flavor, too. Magain too light. As much malts as wheat.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 28, 2010
On tap at Highlands brewpub. Hazy yellow with next to no head and prominent effervescence. Aroma is very sweet with mild blackberries, yeast and malt. Taste of forced blackberries, sweet malt with a dry finish. Reminds me of those sea dog fruit beers that just aren’t that good.
