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.

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.

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.

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 arenít that good.

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.

2.4 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.

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.
