Created by Ken Smith, Colorado. Ken describes his brew as having "a refreshing light taste and cereal crispness from the wheat malt." This unfiltered ale has a rich, fresh fruitiness balanced by a citrus note from the Noble hops.

Bottle from Dilly Deli. Poured a hazy golden yellow color with a large white head that diminished slowly with good lacing. Heavy sweet berrry pie aroma. Medium body with thin texture. Moderate sweet berry pie flavor with a smooth moderate sweet finish of moderate duration. Interesting but to sweet.

12oz bottle-pours a big creamy off white head and cloudy gold color. Aroma is fruity-boysenberry. Taste is sweet, fruity, boysenberry, creamy wheat, then an unexpected and unpleasant sharpness. OK carbonation.

Dogbrick (11327) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 1, 2007
Cloudy orange color with a medium thick and fluffy off-white head that dissipates slowly. Spotty lacing. Sweet berry and malt aroma. Light, crisp body with a tart fruit character. Boysenberry is propped up by some malt and wheat flavors. The finish is clean and fruity with touches of wheat and mild hops. Overall the beer is slightly above average, and despite not being a brew I would seek out again, it is nice to see a mainstream brewer introducing unique styles like this.

hopdog (11274) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 2, 2007
12oz bottle shared courtesy of TomDecapolis. Poured a medium golden color with a small sized white head. Aromas of chock full of berries (all different types of berries). I would have really been into the aroma, but there was this aroma of perfume in there as well that was throwing me off. Tastes of berries (lighter than the aromas), cereal, and wheat.

This is a great fruit beer. Really well balanced with a super boysenberry flavor. Nice cloudy pour with a small cream colored head. Very smooth and easy to drink. I was lucky to score a pack of the longshot winners in Augusta at a Publix while I was at the Masters.
