A uniquely light and refreshing fruit beer with a crisp, clean flavor that is yellow in color. It is an easy drinking, slightly sweet beer with a blackberry flavor that is distinct, yet not overpowering. Medium light body with a medium high carbonation.

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.

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.

Had this at their tap room Fall 2012. Not really impressed with any of their beers. Meh.

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.

sethdude (704) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 9, 2009
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.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 8, 2010
Sampled at the 7th Annual Parkville Microbrew Festival on April 24th, 2010. Clear golden yellow color with a white head. Pronounced blackberry aroma (Iím 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.

Ferris (8457) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 19, 2014
Draft - Berry slushy and candy like. Light gold with a good head. Like melted freezie, sweet and artificial. Much too sweet and juice like.

deyholla (8568) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, 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.

hopscotch (10198) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 26, 2014
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 Łber creamy with lazy carbonation. The flavor is mostly watery and grainy with a light blackberry nuance. Crisp, thin, refreshing finish.
