2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A pretty unappealing fruit beer. The blackberry tastes too sugary and not tart enough. Watery to boot.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Rated on 11-12-2013 (Bottle) This beer forms a small smooth white head that fully lasted, transparent yellow body, extremely fizzy and fast rising carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The Aroma is wheat malt, citrus, blackberries in your face, hint of coriander, sour and tart. The Taste is sweet, hint of coriander, fruity, wheat malt, and blackberries. The Palate is fizzy, bubbly and tangy. This beer is light bodied. Overall, this is a beer that I could not finish drinking as it was just too much blackberry. This is a beer that I will not entertain drinking again.

12 oz bottle from Evergreen Discount. Gold and hazy with a white head. The aroma is fresh blackberry fruitiness. The flavor adds some citrus, wheat malts, coriander and light spices. Sweet and lightly tart with a light body and a refreshing berry finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow with quickly settling head. Aroma is berry sweet, syrup, medicinal. Flavor is similarly sweet and medicinal, sweet berry finish. Taste artificial and syrupy. Light body and moderate carbonation. One of my least favorite Sam Adam’s I’ve tried. Needs a more natural fruit flavor.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Berry, sweet aroma and flavor (I like the berry aroma more than the flavor). A little biscuit-y maly in finish--not nuch. Light, but not very good, bitterness in the aftertaste. Tastes like it’s from an ingredient other than hops.

An interesting beer, to say the least. I wasn't overly impressed but not completely discouraged after tasting this. It has the wheat flavours, coupled with the blackberry through out. It's worth a shot, even if to see what it tastes like. Personally, I felt underwhelmed but I can see the appeal. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
