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!

Much like a flavored seltzer but with alcohol. Something of a bad aftertaste. Color is a mild tan, not overly appealing.

Pours a tranparent blonde a la B/M/C. Small white head thats quickly dissipating. Aroma is sweet--as of blackberry I presume. Start has some blackberry hit, middle is sour and non-exhilarating. Im not sure which lambics this is modeled after, but it is a decent balance for a fruit beer. I understand I am sampling it out of season.

Bad stuff taste like flavored water looks like pee and not worth the time of any real beer lover.

Prostman (1077) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 23, 2003
I didn't really like this beer too much. Very clear and pale yellow with not much of a nose. The taste was bland and rather flat, so much so that I poured the rest out.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 13, 2003
Surprisingly colorless, almost chardonnay-like appearance. Very crisp, doughy malt flavor with sweet blackberries and a hint of hops. Refreshing and fairly tasty.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - AUG 10, 2003
Light clear yellow with a fizzy head. Thin sweet malts - almost bready - coupled with a nice fruit juicey punch. The blackberry is a nice flavor but kind of plays second fiddle to the malts. Sweet lingering finish.

TAR (2677) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - AUG 6, 2003
Transparent pale straw. Quick, fizzy off-white foam. Subdued sourish aroma with hints of must, blackberry cobbler, acidity, and hay. Slightly prickly carbonation. Blackberry flavors are offset by a large pale malt smack. Finishes with a huge amount of pale malts, accompanied by only a smidgen of blackberry. This has potential, but the pale malts dominate, rather than enhance the blackberries. Some Hallertua presence, or any hop presence for that matter, would have sufficed nicely, to counter the pale malts and still let the blackberries do their job. It somehow remains palatable, and a tad better than I anticipated.

vwsteggie (684) - Paxton, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 6, 2003
Has a clear yellow color with a good bit of carbonation and a fruity smell. Taste is light slighty fruity and finishes kind of weak. Overall not my type.

BtownBrewer (91) - Belchertown, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 6, 2003
Faint fruity aroma, but I can't identify it as being blackberry. I can taste 3 flavors here: water, blackberry (barely) and hops (barely). Wicked thin body. But on the upside, it's easy to drink... I could put back 6 of these and never notice.

jgb9348 (5686) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 23, 2003
A very thin looking, barely golden colour with a fluffy white head. A bunch of large bubbles rising from the bottom are very noticable as this is lighter than any other pilsner i've had. There are no signs of cloudyness/hazyness to characterise its 'wheatiness', but i'll assume wheat was used in its production. The smell is actually pretty nice, a sweet very ripe blackberry is the single characteristic, but its very pleasant, especially for a summer evening. The taste was pretty watery with a slight blackberry taste, but definately a balanced beer of little to no hops and little to no malt. Really not one to look forward to. This is the second by the brewery that I've had, and I have one currently left in my place...and I will buy no more from this brewery. I've learned my lesson, and this is definately not the brewery to go for.
