2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

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.
