Pale golden yellow hue. Small white head bubbles away immediately. Not a very pleasant nose eminating from this one. Very light on the palate. Not much in depth or flavor. Finishes kinda like a budweiser and smuckers sandwich. Im not impressed.

(at brewery, July í02) Very pale wheat beer. Flavor is entirely of blackberries. Might be just the thing for someone who just biked to the brewery (which is in a lovely setting), but otherwise pass.

I think this is actually my favorite Long Trail. Itís light, very fruity, and really good on a hot day. The blackberry flavor easily takes over this light bodied beer, which is fine with me. My only complaints are that thereís really not much else to this besides blackberry, and itís very very light, even for a pale wheat beer.

Not a very good beer. I hardly see how this can be called a wheat. Much too transparent, very little flavor. At least it tasted clean and not putrid.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2006 Solid, but not spectacular or even really memorable. Could use more of its namesake flavor, if you ask me. Aroma kind of nasty out of the bottle; let it sit for 5 minutes. Also a bit bitter on the palate to start, but this should smooth out after a few moutfuls. 8/6 revision: I was a bit too kind to this beer on first shot; really rather bland and palate just above that of PBR or Michelob. 7/4/02 revision. Bad mood punishing myself by drinking crappy fruit beers. Uggh. Nose indeed gets better as it warms; but do you want to taste it warm? Not horrible if drunk moderately cold, but like most of this brewerís beers avoidable unless you (like me) must try all of your home-states libations.

Watery light beer, with a hint of blackberry. I donít see how this can be called a wheat, but it can be called a poor interpritation of one from a brewery with a good reputation. I hope this is just their token light fruity beer for people who wonít reach for a beer unless it says berry of some sort on it.

ehh, doesnít do a damn thing for me. I taste very little blackberry. It tastes nothing like a wheat beer. Itís like they took a basic lager and squirted some blackberry juice into it.
