COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This brew combines 2-Row Pilsen malt, a hint of Crystal malt, and of course, plenty of malted wheat. A hint of blackberry at the finish makes this beer a real thirst quencher! For the health conscious, Blackbeary Wheat has less than 6 grams of carbs and under 125 calories per bottle!

08.11.04 Sample @ Mew’s in RI. Pale and thin pour, avg head. Aromas of some undiscernable berries, I guess it could be blackberry, maybe a tad on the sour side. This is supposed to be ’modeled after’ American wheat and lambic? Huh? Anyway, I don’t get much wheat character other than slight musty sourness. Berry flavor is never much of a factor, although this was a 2oz sample. Whatever, I’m just glad I didn’t buy a glass of the stuff.

An american wheat with blackberry flavor pretty much sums it up. Pale yellow in color, not sure what happened to the blackberry’s influence there, must have been filtered out. Small head that did not last. Light body, like a wheat beer. Blackberry aroma and flavor along with typical wheat character.

shadey (2079) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 22, 2004
Bottle: Drank from the bottle so I didn’t have much appearance to judge. The aroma is sweet berry. Taste has just a hint of the berry, and a decent wheat beer. This beer saved me from a night of Bud Lite.

ukoolaid (579) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 17, 2004
Bottle. Color is golden with very little head at all. Aroma is sweet. Taste has a hint of blueberry with malts and a dry finish (where’s the wheat?). Not terrible, but not something I need to buy again.

egajdzis (6105) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 15, 2004
Poured a bright golden color with a small white head and light lacin gon the glass. Tart and almost funky barnyard and blackberry aroma. Bland lemon and blackberry taste, very light on malts. Seemed spritzy.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 4, 2004
Swet, simple blackberry aroma is appealing. Pale golden body with thin white head that diminishes to thin cover. Good carbonation. Mild blackberry fruit flavour in a pretty middle of the road american wheat beer. Mouthfeel is rather watery and that detracts from overall enjoyment more and more with each sip. I don’t really see how this is modelled after a Lambic. Bottle.

DocLock (9999) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2004
Pours pale gold with medium, creamy white head. Aroma of blackberries, some malt and hops. Tastes malty, with slight corniness, and slight blackberry flavor in the finish.

freekyp (1926) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - JUN 30, 2004
Aroma carries a waft of perfume along with slight blackberry presence. Spare quickly disipating head portends the thinness in the body of this beer. Somewhat watery, the blackberry flavor is faint, rising slightly in the acidic finish.

sfontain (851) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 26, 2004
Pours a slightly pale, urine yellow. After 10 minutes the head is literally completely gone, without so much as a trace of fizz on top. Aroma has some perfumey berriness to it that I presume to be blackberries. Flavor has the same berriness to it, not far from that Crystal Light stuff that chicks drink. Hops? What hops? Very watery; flavor hardly lingers at all. "'Lambics' of Belgium" my ass. Quite pathetic. Don't waste your time and money. The worst of Long Trail.
