COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American style wheat mixed with blackberry juice and a touch of our Steam Engine Stout to create this dark fruity ale

We donít want to toot our own horn, but we will anyway. This brew is another top seller. Created by accident, a chance blending of raspberry wheat and stout, we recreated this crowd pleaser for distribution. Call it a mad scientist production, call it a miracle, call it dumb luck if you want; we call it serendipity. To those that claim they can only drink one fruit beer or that they donít enjoy them at all, please give this one a try. The blackberries are deliciously subtle giving this wheat ale/stout blend just that little something extra that keeps them coming back for more. Easy drinking by itself or, like the raspberry wheat, a great beer to enjoy with dessert.

Cola colored with big, frothy head. Aroma of blackberries. Flavor is malty with blackberry. THe blackberry flavor was not too sweet nor was it tart. Kind of dry, but worked pretty well with the stout.

Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks decent; a transparent blackberry brown with light beige head. Smells wheaty and malty with mild notes of blackberry. Tastes like it smells, but less balanced. Average (at best) on the palate. Eh.

Draft. Roasty cola and sweet blackberry aroma. Chestnut with a small beige head. Sweet fruity blackberry and light roasty malt flavor. Light body, moderate carbonation.

Beerman6686 (4423) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2013
This poured a purplish light brown color with a beige head. Aroma was light roast, and artifical raspberries. Flavor was similar,a basic overly sweetened fruit beer with a light blend of stout.

thedm (4948) - Fort Wayne, USA - JAN 1, 2013
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy light brown colored bubbles that were and left behind a typically carbonated transparent dark cola brown colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The aroma was berry and dark malt. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of berry and dark malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

tap at the brewpub, Jul 21, 2012 - Pours dark amber-brown with a small head. Thereís a good blackberry aroma with a touch of roasted malt. It tastes sweet with the blackberries the most dominate flavor. The stout is a good addition, bringing a stronger, more flavorful malt body to this fruit beer. Itís medium bodied and finishes with some bitterness. Pretty solid. To my surprise I think it was the best of my samples at the brewpub.
