2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours hazy gold with a large off-white head. Light, slightly sweet, blackberry aroma with notes of yeast and a strange grainy odor. Flavor is similar. Thin with a light finish. Bland and unoffensive.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
A hazy amber hue with a small, weak head. The aromas are mostly fruity and berry-like with a light malty backbone and a hint of spice. Flavors are similar -- fruity, spicy, berry flavors dominate while the malt adds some light bread background -- although the generic berry aroma seems more specifically blackberry upon tasting. A bit too sweet for me, but about as expected on this count. Slightly acidic rather than soft, particularly in the finish. Medium-light body.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a golden unclear with white that diminishes quickly. Smell is dominated but not strongly by blackberries. Almost weak wine cooler like. Taste is sweet berries, slight tartness. Again almost like a grape/berry spritzer. Not bad. I could see this being popular with nonbeer drinkers.

12oz bottle picked up at the state store
Appearance: Hazy straw golden with a big frothy white head and some lacing
Aroma and flavors of blackberries and grape soda, sweet
I like blackberries but I wouldn’t order a 2nd one of these.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle, heavy aroma of blueberry taste, and unlike Sam Adams beers, this fruit does overtake the taste of the beer. Medium sweetness, lively co2, some spicy notes with heavily sour/tart taste. Not one of the better Sam Adams.

Clear pour with a medium head. Strong blackberry aroma. Distinct taste of blackberries that are quite sticky. Good summer beer. (Too bad it’s November)

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A pretty decent fruit beer but there isn’t anything "witbier" about it. The blackberry flavor is pleasant and there is a bit of a bitterness in the finish. Somewhat refreshing.
