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!

Some may think iím biased but I tasted this beer two summers ago in the adirondacks on lake champlain. Last summer I picked it up again near the lake and drank it all weekend. Iíve been drinking it since. I donít like many fruity wheat beers but this one is the best. It can almost be considered a light beer and goes down like champagne with a touch of real blackberry taste left over. Most of the other fruit beers seem artificial, yet you can tell fresh blackberries were used in the making of this one. I highly recomend this to anyone who has had bad luck with other fruit flavored beers. It will change your mind.

light golden color aroma- strong with hints of blackberryís and hops taste- good mixture of hops and slight aftertaste of blackberry which leaves your tongue tingling Little to no head but what head there is is a white and disappears after a couple sips It seems that Long Trail may have changed the recipe since the release cause i didnít used to like this beer but not love it.

UPDATED: APR 23, 2008 Nice berry aromas and pours a clear light gold with a small white head. Smooth sweet taste of berries with subtle wheat lurking in the background. Knocked it a few points for itís lack of overall alcohol content and being more berry flavour than wheat. Still a very nice beer though.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz. bottle into a pint glass. Appearance: The body was a clear pale yellow color with a thin white head. Its head just covered the body and left only minimal lacing on the glass. Smell: The aroma had a pleasant bouquet of sweet wild berries with some notes of grain and wheat malts. Taste/Mouth feel: It has a slight acidity and a semi-sweet blackberry flavor up front that is held in check buy the twang of the wheat. These two flavors are balanced nicely and work very well together. Hop flavor is very mild offering only a very slight herbal flavor and almost no bitterness. The taste thins towards the finish, which is crisp and slightly dry. Its body is light with a crisp refreshing texture and an average to fizzy carbonation. Notes: This beer has a nice solid flavor with an easy to drink body that makes for a nice hot weather refresher.

Very good wheat beer. Nice blackberry smell and taste to the palate. Smooth drink not very heavy kind of on the lighter side. Very good beer

Draft. Not a fruity wheat fan but impressed with this beer. Blackberry at the first, finishes with a nice wheat flavor. Very light. Crisp. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Iím not a huge fan of fruity beers, but this one is good. Light and refreshing, smells of blueberries mostly. This blueberry taste is not too overwhelming, the wheat comes through. Pretty simply overall. Nice on a warm day.

Cloudy wheat beer with the subtle taste and scent of blackberries. Excellent for quenching thirst and as a good session beer, one of the better Long Trails Iíve had

This beer has a nice hoppy smell with a nice golden color to it. As you drink it there is a smoothy taste almost fruity on the palate. you get the best of both worlds with this beer a fruity and weat beer at the sme time.

12 oz bottle. Pours a medium yellow color. Aroma is not very noticeable, maybe a hint of berry ? Actually tastes pretty good. Thicker than their regular hefeweizen and really crisp, although I donít taste the blackberry. Underrated.
