Bottle. Good aroma:more currant than blackberry. Excellent color. Medium head tha dissipates withing 5 minutes. Typical mouthfeel for a wheat beer. Main disappointment is flavor which is just so so. Tastes better with food like Ritz crackers. Not that great by itself.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The body has a nice slightly hazy appearance with some visible streams of carbonation and golden color. On top there is a thick and fluffy bright white head. It hangs out for a bit but soon starts to fade fast down to a small ring of lace. There is some slick lacing on the glass. There is a nice berry aroma as soon as you open the bottle. Light bready wheat notes are mixed in as well. The flavor has a light wheat base with light floral notes and mixed berry notes that have light sweetness. This gives way to some tart berry notes and a very slight acidity that dries out into the finish which is quick and clean. The body is light to medium with lively carbonation and texture.

12oz bottle from Orchard Fresh, Orchard Park, NY. A hazy straw colour with a thin white head; berry aroma with some malt in the background; clean berry taste, but rather sweet. Drinkable but nothing more.

bottle. Deep golden with small head. Average wheat beer with some blackberry and some mild wit spicing. Sounds more exciting than it is.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance had a light orange colored body into a nonic and had a small white one finger head. Very little lacing was left and no rings were left either, some light carbonation was seen rising.
The smell had blackberries and wheat. Some malts were in the background.
The taste had pretty much the same, nothing new from the smell.
The palate sat about a medium and the carbonation was moderately felt on the mouth.
Overall, this isn’t a bad beer. I’d have this again, preferably on tap.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured cloudy orange with a small white head and small traces of lacing on the glass. Aroma of blackberries and grain. Taste is consistent, sweet, fruity, very slight bitterness from hops. OK beer.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Decent initially, but it dies far too quickly. Some spotty lace. Hazy. Neutral gold color.
Cold raspberry aroma with a wheat bite. Lemon zest smell here as well.
Light flavored until the swallow, which is sour with the lightest amount of berry. One of the thinner beers I’ve ever had; it’s also a little spritzy. Short aftertaste. All in all, a very ordinary beer.

Nice appearance, not quite clear, small sudsy head that dissipates quickly. Nice aroma of blackberries, like a Welch’s soda. Smooth drink, no bitterness to speak of, fruity and bubbly. I would probably get tired of it after awhile, which makes it a good seasonal.

Pours an unappealing reddish yellow. Taste and aroma are both weak. Mouthfeel is very thin. It’s not bad but I have no reason to drink another.

The syrupy Marion berry overwhelms. You're kidding yourself if you taste orange coriander. But somehow the best fruit beer I ever had. But I'd like to see feint berry in a good beer. Problem is less syrupy fruity leave funky fruity beer. A good fruit beer hasn't been done yet. That I know of.
