COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The blackberries we use in Samuel Adams® Blackberry Witbier are perfect for this brew. They deliver a subtle sweetness that balances the traditional citrus flavors from the witbier. The blackberries used in Samuel Adams Blackberry Witbier are sourced from family farms, located at the foot of the Oregon Trail and Cascade Mountains in Western Oregon, where they have been growing some of the best blackberries in the world for centuries. By bringing the blackberries, orange and coriander together with an appealing malt character and a spiciness from the hops, we’ve brewed a flavorful beer with a smooth finish that’s both sweet and tart. Samuel Adams® Blackberry Witbier is brewed with two-row Harrington and Metcalfe malted barley and generous portions of malted wheat. The malted barley and malted wheat provide the beer with its light body while the coriander and orange give the beer its citrus like aromas. We’ve also added some Oregon Marion blackberries, to give the brew a perfect balance between its subtly sweet and tart flavors.

Bottle purchased in a Las Vegas liquor store. Cloudy gold beer. Dry semi soft palate, turning frothy. Light fruity blackberry. Not a lot of wheatbeer character. Finishes with some dry malt. Inoffensive but doesn’t really hang together.

12oz bottle-pours a foamy off white head and slightly hazed gold color. Aroma is fruit-blackberry, some grain. Taste is fruit-blackberry, some grain, slight spice hops. It is what it is….a fruit beer. Not sure I get any wit character. Thanks jwc215 for picking this one out.

Bottle from BevMo. Hazy light amber color with a decent beige head. Smells like blackberries. Near medium body with coarse carbonation. Flavor is grain/wheat/bread with definite dark berry flavor. I’d say blackberry. Finish is mild. Not very bitter. Not at all sweet.

brokensail (10641) - Orange County, California, USA - MAR 20, 2011
A: The beer pours a sort of yellowish color, interesting since it’s supposed to be a blackberry witbier... S: The blackberry aroma is there, but that is about all you can smell. I don’t get much, if any, of the actual witbier, unfortunately. It also seems to have a sense of "fakeness" about it. T: Blackberries are less noticeable on the flavor, but the witbier base isn’t all that intense either. Some grain and malt flavor but not much of the usual orange peel and coriander flavor. M: Medium in body with a moderate to high carbonation. O: A let down from the old standby Sam Adams. Not one of the better offerings.

Leighton (10538) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2010
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow-gold with a modest, fluffy white head. Wonderful blackberry aroma, very pungent and natural, with some wheat and yeast. Flavor is of moderate sweetness, with some nice fruity notes and a rich, bready character. Light to medium in body, well carbonated. Quite refreshing with authentic blackberry aspects. Good fruit beer.

Tmoney99 (10462) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 3, 2009
Bottle from Keg Liquor. Poured hazy pale color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate yeasty berry aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium fruity sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Drinkable soft beer, but only worth having once.
