3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance had a light orange colored body into a nonic and had a small white one finger head. Very little lacing was left and no rings were left either, some light carbonation was seen rising.
The smell had blackberries and wheat. Some malts were in the background.
The taste had pretty much the same, nothing new from the smell.
The palate sat about a medium and the carbonation was moderately felt on the mouth.
Overall, this isn’t a bad beer. I’d have this again, preferably on tap.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured cloudy orange with a small white head and small traces of lacing on the glass. Aroma of blackberries and grain. Taste is consistent, sweet, fruity, very slight bitterness from hops. OK beer.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Decent initially, but it dies far too quickly. Some spotty lace. Hazy. Neutral gold color.
Cold raspberry aroma with a wheat bite. Lemon zest smell here as well.
Light flavored until the swallow, which is sour with the lightest amount of berry. One of the thinner beers I’ve ever had; it’s also a little spritzy. Short aftertaste. All in all, a very ordinary beer.

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.

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.
