BeerandBlues2 (9599) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - DEC 13, 2013

Drake (8442) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 18, 2011
Served on draft at the brewpub. Pours a hazy pink-tinged orange with a large creamy white head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of artifically flavored berry syrup with some wheat notes. The taste is wheat and berries. Dry. Thin bodied. Like so many berry wheat beers this comes across as soda-like.

Dogbrick (7992) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 18, 2007
Sample at the brewpub. Pours a light amber color with a thin off-white head that does not last long. Top ring of lacing with spots underneath. The aroma is similar to Fruity Pebbles, with a bit of wheat. Light-bodied with a sweet berry flavor and touches of wheat and mild hops. The finish is short and fruity, without much aftertaste. Pretty forgettable overall.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2011
On tap at the North End Tavern, Parkersburg WV on 11 March 2010 (noted at 5.5%). As these things go this was a pretty decent example. Golden colour. Not too sweet. Prominent fruity presence - maybe a little artificial but relatively clean. More fruit than wheat.

DrSilverworm (6317) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 6, 2014
Taster on tap at the brewpub, served in a plastic cup. Clear golden, slightly orange color. Thin white head. Definitely get the berry in the nose... Damn, this tastes straight up like a blue berry muffin. Moderate sweet, and a good light tart taste. Light carbonation, smooth, kind of soft texture, lightly dry finish. A very similar feel to standard WV wheat. An awesome, balanced, refreshing fruit beer.
