3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
beautiful pour on this one. that’s the best part about it. overwhelmingly malty, and then a very sugary candied fruit taste lingers in your mouth for a while. the blackberry is sorta weird, but i’m not typically a fruit beer fan anyway. i’ve certainly had worse, though. this might be alright in the summer, at a bbq or something. i’m sitting here trying to watch the hockey game though, and this isn’t really doing it for me.

Different in a good way. Cloudy golden pour produces a 2 finger creamy head, that regrettably doesn’t stick around too long. Blackberry prominent in aroma, some malt. Flavor is a lightly tart at first, yet finishes on the sweet side. Blackberry and malt evenly balanced, noticeably spicy with some orange. Tingly on palate, bitterness blends well. Medium light body. Would like to see more af a contribution from the yeast, but nothing to complain about. Wife doesn’t like it, so I have a case all to myself!

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Great fruit beer. Pours a hazy golden hue into the glass with a small white head. Aromas of blackberries and fruit with some coriander and yeast. Nice refreshing mouth feel to it. Good malty backbone. The blackberries are in no way overpowering. They offer a nice flair in the background that shines through in the finish. Very refreshing, I’ll be buying this one again.

Found this in a six-pack at Binny’s in St. Charles, Illinois. Poured a hazy, dark yellow with a thick white head. Pronounced nose of blueberries, sweet bread, and some tart citrus. Maltiness gives way to an overwhelming fruitiness that is overpowering and fairly one-dimensional. Sweet finish. This is not bad but I’ve had better fruit beers.

Bottle. Pours an orange golden body with a white head. Blackberries, sweet fruits, light malt with some citrus. Sweet with a light tartness. Berries are subtle to the finish. Decent brew.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light hazy yellow with a slowly dissipating white head. Blackberries evident upon opening the beer and they smell fresh to go with some malt. Taste of blackberries, sweet malt. Kind of syrupy with a semi dry finish. Easy drinking and decent.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from coopers. Sour blackberry aroma with a terrible taste up front. Not much of a wit at all. Pretty much the same as the cherry wheat but much harder to drink. BAD

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Ugh...just about as bad as Cherry Wheat. The aroma is initially ok....but then appears to be too sweet. The blackberry flavor is ok, but everything else is not. Finish is like a bad lager. Way too sweet.

Strong aroma of berries and fruit. Initial taste is strong berry, but finishes with a flavorless linger.

Pours a slightly hazey orange with little head. The bubble formed on the inside of the glass remind me of a cola. The aroma is very sweet like a bowl of sugar candy. The flavor is also very sweet but not foul in any way. This is like the candy of beers. Palate is light and sugary and leaves a thickness on the back of the tongue and sticky sweetness on the lips. This is definately a beer that you drink one of and move on to something bitter to balance your palate. Witbiers have never been my favorite and I rate this one right along with all the others. Just okay.
