muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - APR 17, 2004
500 ml bottle. Hazy luminous orange, little head. Slight berry nose, pleasant and sweet but simple and too understated. In the mouth, massively acidic from the get-go, with the tartness continuing all the way through to a fruity, sour finish. Good body, nice berry flavor, but quite one-dimensional, lemony tartness really being the only other flavor I could discern.

This is very acidic. Almost like a Duchesse de Bourgogne. I see no similarities with a Blanche (witbier, white). The orange color is interesting but the taste is not. The acid taste reminds a gueuse but it's not enough to be one.

mrkimchee (1414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 15, 2004
pours hazy amber orange, lacy white head. some nice tart blackbeery aroma with a bit of malt, lemon and faint yeast. the flavour follows and finishes mildly peppery.

Roli (405) - laval, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 10, 2003
Amber color. It got a pleasant fruit aroma but there is nothing more about it because the taste isn't as good as what it smell's. Acidic. It doesn't taste like a blanche in my book ... and the blackberries are not really pleasant in the flavor ... Not really refreshing too.

CapFlu (4364) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 2, 2003
(Bottle) I was very fortunate that Le Goblet really had a good selection of La Barberie product during this visit to Montreal. Pours a thin, frothy, white head and a slightly cloudy amber body with much minute sediment. Nose of hops and blackberry. Very acidic and dry - could double as a white wine! Good.

Lubiere (9438) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 12, 2003
Nice fruity aroma, but not sure its blackberry (műres), slight acidic feel in mouth with the berry coming nicely, but lacks some of the attribute of a Blanche...

SimonPatrice (312) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 21, 2003
Pinkish orange colour, quick falling head. Weird pungent aroma, sweat, young baby's diaper. Fruity tast, some hoppyness, yeasty finish, some acidity.

   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
Rastacouere (6107) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 28, 2003
bottled: Blond body with a fruity smell of lemon and cherries. In mouth, while the blackberry is more obvious, I'm impressed they've named the beer after it. Fruitiness and tartness, it lacks spices for a white. Too simple and not so balanced, the acidity cuts it short more than it makes it refreshing.

MartinT (7523) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 15, 2003
A dark amber luminescence evokes the first occurance of this question : "Isn't this supposed to be a witbier?"...A cantaloup aroma over a slightly acid blackberry juice in a thin, highly quaffable, body...If this wasn't labelled as a wit, I probably would not have thought of the underlying powdery orange peel bitterness...
