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.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Semi-clear but a very light hazy cloudiness to this light yellow colored brew. No head and high carbonation. Aroma is all blackberry extract with a very light touch of wheat at the end. Flavor is overly strong of blackberry and carries a wheat note at the end along with a slightly sour profile. Overall the fruity note was a bit too dominate in the brew for my taste as it tasted more like blackberry essence or syrup than fruit added, so no other flavors really came through.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

3.3 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.

This beer surprised me too.
Granted, it is an extract blackberry beer, and I was not holding out much hope, but again, solid taste for the style.
The big knocks against it are the appearance, which is completely lacking any wheat characteristics. In fact, this looks like a pale lager in every aspect.
Additionally, there were way too many hops in this beer (Holy shit, did I just say that?). By the look and the taste, I would almost say that they took a pale lager and added extract. I did not taste any wheat, nor did I see any wheat-like characteristics to the beer- either in the head or body.
Still, the blackberry was nice, and the drink was thirst quenching.
2 Oz sample. Donít think Iíd order this shit by the glass!
Oh, by the way, 2 dollars for a 20+ oz pint is fucking amazing.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours hazy gold with medium lacing. Aroma is candy sweet, bubblegum and artificial fruit aroma. Flavor is initially strong fruit, followed by a slightly astringent alcohol note (I think thatís what it was), giving the beer a slightly unpleasant medicinal quality. Grassy finish. Palate is somewhat fizzy.
