2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

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.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at the 7th Annual Parkville Microbrew Festival on April 24th, 2010. Clear golden yellow color with a white head. Pronounced blackberry aroma (I’m not sure I could tell the difference between black or rasp. Just berrified for sure). Mild in flavor, but not watery. No odd off flavors of seeds, burntness, or syrup extract sweetness. Drinkable and benign.

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.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour is a pale gold with a white head. Aroma is decent with lots of berry coming out. Flavor is weaker with only a fraction of the fruit there. Its more grainy than anything. Another fruit beer that smells better than it tastes.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted 8/7/10. Sampler from the Brewpub. Mildly hazy with a pale golden hue. Trace ring of head. Aromas of berries and a slight wheatiness. Light to medium bodied with a bright palate. The berries are in the forefront, but it’s backed up by a really nice vanilla sweetness. Good body and very crisp for the Summertime. Mildly lingering finish with the berry tart/sweetness lingering with the zesty base wheat beer.
