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!

Sort of a neon-yellow but the clarity is clear. The white head disappears. Poppy and tart with the blackberry. The only thing is it taste like an additive rather than mellowed into the beer. But overall decent fruit beer.

Very UNimpressed. Pretty bland....both taste and palate. Maybe a transitional kinda craft beer for someone coming from Coors Light. I prefer when the dominant fruit in a craft is not overdone, but this one hardly shows up. The only thing I'll say is that I have a little bit of a cold, so maybe that's throwing me off....but I doubt it's that much. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma of some lager like funk and some mild fruity aroma. Light in flavor. Light malt and some very light fruit. Bit of a cheap malt flavor to this as well. Not great but drinkable-ish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Reviewed from notes. The appearance has a transparent yellow colored body that yielded a small fizzy white head that appeared for ten seconds and died. No lacing was left. Rapidly rising carbonation was seen. The smell had a decent blend of the blackberries and the wheat, but nothing else. The taste was exactly the same. On the palate, well, hmmm....it was very light, extremely sessionable, and there was an extremely high amount of carbonation that was felt. Overall, I like blackberries, but they seemed to be trying to "blend" it in too well in this beer. Being a "fruit/vegetable beer," I thought they would come out a bit more. Still, I’m not sure if I would have this again.........??

Erzengel (1912) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 28, 2013
Hellgelbe und klare Farbe im Glas, süßlich-fruchtiger Brombeergeruch. Der Antrunk ist etwas wässrig, aber süffig und sehr mild. Zum Hauptteil kommt eine deutliche Brombeernote hinzu, allerdings ist von dem Hefeweizen nicht allzuviel zu schmecken. Der Hauptteil ist neben den Brombeeren mild-süßlich, ganz leicht herb, es fehlen aber die typischen Kristallweizenaromen. Der Nachgeschmack ist auch ziemlich wässrig, außer leichter Brombeersüße und einem sehr mild-herben Bierton ist da nicht viel. Auf der Zunge bleibt fast gar nichts zurück
→ Die Brombeernote ist ok, aber der Rest ist kein Bier sondern fast Wasser! → Eigentlich durchgefallen, nur die Brombeeren retten noch etwas!

Very little head. Slight scent of berry, but not much of a blackberry taste. Feels kind of empty after drinking.

Bottle at home. Pours clear gold with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is wheat malt and blackberry. Flavor is malt and blackberry with a dry finish. Light body and moderate carbonation.

The short of it is that this beer does not have enough of a flavor to be a drain pour. Fermi described someone's argument that "it was not even wrong" and this is how I feel about this beer. Chilled enough, it will pass for a refresher, but don't mistake that for a recommendation. The pale yellow-orange liquid pours nicely, with moderate, quickly dissipating head, moderate carbonation. The smell is somewhat offputting with a distinct but faint presence of rotten fruit. The odor is likely stronger when the beer is not chilled to 38F, but I'd be hard-pressed to describe it as "aroma". This only gets worse when you taste it. Although not overwhelming, the constant presence of musty black-grape flavor is distracting and bothersome, but is clearly meant to be a "feature". The rest of the flavor is missing in action -- taste more like flavored mineral water with a drop of cheap vodka. In some parallel universe it may give Leinie a run for its money--but not in mine (and I can't drink Leinie with a straight face). This alone would make me think twice about buying LT. I was initially unimpressed with LT festival samples but wanted to give them a full try. This appears to be the worst of mediocre lineup. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

crisnee (4) - New Hampshire, USA - AUG 18, 2013 does not count
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2013 Pale, little head, a bit fizzy, slight fruit (blackberry?) light in body and light in flavor. Not bad, but kind of disappointing.
