3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle: Slightly cloudy yellow, orange hue with a short lived white head. Mixed berries and sweet spices for the aroma, reminds me of a cherry 7up. Flavor starts light and refreshing and finishes quite sweet. Luckily the sweetness doesn’t linger longer than needed. Lively carbonation with an almost creamy mouthfeel. I wouldn’t want to drink more than one of these at a sitting but its enjoyable despite its dull appearance.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a soft copper amber with a thin frothy white head. The aroma is sweet, fruity, caramel, artificial, the aroma isn’t really distinctly blackberry. The flavor is sweet, artificial, caramel, candy, fake blackberry, kind of tart. Not diggin this.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Somehow all the trash talking on the forums made me want to try this more. hahaha Pours a hazy orange color with no treal head to speak of. Aroma is candy sweetness with some berries and lots of weird soapiness. Flavor is better than expected very spicy largley drier than expected the blackberry is very well under control.
