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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

Fruity raspberry taste. Nose is more of the same. It’s as advertised. I thought it went down very nicely. Rated 4/5/10

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.
