12 oz bottle i thought i’d try... this beer is identical to lancaster brewing company’s strawberry wheat, except replace by blackberry.... the best way to describe this beer is it tastes like corn flakes with blueberries on top.... it’s unique in flavor, tastes more like a wheat than a wit...

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Was excited to try as I like most of Boston Beer Co. offerings.
12 oz bottle pours golden with a slight haze into a SA glass. Held a slight head that died quickly.
Has a nice blackberry scent, smells slightly sweet with some tones of grape.
First taste is somewhat bitter but not from hops. Does have a blackberry flavor but not as much as I anticipated. Some wheat coming through. Carbonation feels right for the style.
Overall not a bad beer but not something I could consider a session.

12 oz., bb July 09. Mostly clear orange-gold with a thin, lasting disc of bubbles. Aroma is raspberry-blackberry and maybe some peaches. Flavor is tart berry and hints of apple, toned down by wheat flour and the bitter pith of the fruits. Light-medium body is acidic-tingly, watery and lightly carbonated. Some soapy lace is left behind on the pint.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a hazy peach with a subtle hint of red and a nice head... Aroma of blackberry, coriander, and wheat... This beer has an upfront taste and a finish that dont necessarily match... An upfront taste that is quite berry flavored with a sweetness, followed by a very pronounce wheat taste which finishes almost unpleasantly... I like the upfront taste very much, but am a bit against the finish... If you want a better raspberry wheat i would try southern tier raspberry wheat...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a slightly hazy gold into a Tumbler. White micro head quickly recedes to skim surface. Blackberry aromas. Creamy hint of blackberry upfront turning to marshmallow and wheat in the middle and finish. Tastes like blackberry cobbler and would make a nice dessert beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour is a hazy orange with an average white head. Aroma is berry with some powered sugar. Flavor is a little better than your average fruit/wheat beer. It starts out with some berry but the wheat aspect is here better than most. It almost finishes with some breadyness. Still I would probably not get this again but chicks would dig it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Cloudy orange-tan color. Aroma has a touch of zesty blackberry. The taste is pretty much standard Sam Adams, artificial tasting fruit, crisp carbonation/effervescence. A nice palate cleanser, not bad by any means, but doesn’t capture the better attributes of the Wit beer or the Blackberry.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
more of a grape taste than blackberry, some wheat overtones, also honey element. Reminds me of a dessert wine. 1 at a time is plenty.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours coppery in color with a thin off white head. Smells of sour fruit and bread. Tastes wheaty, fruity, sweet, and tart. The finish is a little bitter and dry. I can’t really say that its a whole lot like blackberry, but it has the taste of any fermented dark berry. However, its pretty drinkable and refreshing.

meh, something about fruit beers just never seem right to me, This one had good colorto it a nice cloudy amber hue, it was missing a head though. Aroma was of mild wheat notes and some fruitiness to it. Flavor was similarit needed to be less of a fruit note and more wheat notes. Carbonation was present other than that palate was marginal.
