COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The blackberries we use in Samuel Adams® Blackberry Witbier are perfect for this brew. They deliver a subtle sweetness that balances the traditional citrus flavors from the witbier. The blackberries used in Samuel Adams Blackberry Witbier are sourced from family farms, located at the foot of the Oregon Trail and Cascade Mountains in Western Oregon, where they have been growing some of the best blackberries in the world for centuries. By bringing the blackberries, orange and coriander together with an appealing malt character and a spiciness from the hops, we’ve brewed a flavorful beer with a smooth finish that’s both sweet and tart. Samuel Adams® Blackberry Witbier is brewed with two-row Harrington and Metcalfe malted barley and generous portions of malted wheat. The malted barley and malted wheat provide the beer with its light body while the coriander and orange give the beer its citrus like aromas. We’ve also added some Oregon Marion blackberries, to give the brew a perfect balance between its subtly sweet and tart flavors.

Nice appearance, not quite clear, small sudsy head that dissipates quickly. Nice aroma of blackberries, like a Welch’s soda. Smooth drink, no bitterness to speak of, fruity and bubbly. I would probably get tired of it after awhile, which makes it a good seasonal. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours an unappealing reddish yellow. Taste and aroma are both weak. Mouthfeel is very thin. It’s not bad but I have no reason to drink another.

The syrupy Marion berry overwhelms. You're kidding yourself if you taste orange coriander. But somehow the best fruit beer I ever had. But I'd like to see feint berry in a good beer. Problem is less syrupy fruity leave funky fruity beer. A good fruit beer hasn't been done yet. That I know of. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle: Pale golden color, reminiscent of fruit juice. Just a dash of white head. Nose is fruity, like a spritzer or maybe a radler if you use your imagination. Blackberry and Zima. Actually pretty good blackberry flavors up front, but it gets a little vegetal and chalky on the backend. Finishes a little dry with bits of dandelion and florals. I like this in concept, but something to sweeten it up would push it up a notch or two.

Bottle sampled at a tasting event. From notes. Loads of blackberry but not much wit. Some light spices. Not bad.

Pleasantly surprised by this..not a big wheat or witbier fan, but this is a nice, sweet spring/summer beer.

A holiday guest left a bunch of this in my fridge, so I figured I’d get to ratin’ - seems like there is a halfway decent wheat beer at the base of this (no wit character, though - more like an american wheat) - unfortunately, the pleasant character is swallowed up in a rather artificial, quite sweet berry character, combining with the wheat character to create a flavor not unlike fruit flavored children’s cereal - syrupy finish - the kind of beer you would order for a woman that hates beer.

A drinkable fruit beer . The blackberries and orange work well together. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
