COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Pours a hazy golden color with a medium white fluffy head. Aroma is dominated by berries, with undertones of honey and wheat. Same goes for the body, though the wheat is more balanced here. Thin body, at times pleasant and at others too watery. Has a familiar bitterness that all other Sam wheat beers have, but subdued a bit by the berries. I really canít decide whether I like it or not, but itís not bad or poorly made, could be a refreshing summer beverage.

Reviewed from notes: Pours a coppery color with off-white head. Berry, citrus, and fruits on the nose, with just a little hop pine; follows onto the palate. Finishes sweet.

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2010 So this must be Ken Smith on the bottle. Seems like a nice guy, likes a good beer. Hoepfully heís not to snobby about it.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAY 29, 2009
Bottle. Pours a copper body with a whit head. Awesome aroma of berries and fresh sliced fruit. Flavor is a bit more tame with wheat dominating and some candy sweetness, not bad.

ben4321 (3935) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 14, 2009
Overall Impression: Out of the LongShot pack from I believe 2007? This was a weird and interesting beer. Old notes had it rated here, so Iíll just trust those...

shp555 (2024) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 21, 2009
Pours a clear golden color with a fluffy white head. Aroma is sweet fruity boysenberry syrup, some malt poking through, and maybe some vanilla. Flavor is sweet boysenberry candy, malty, vanilla, and a slightly spicy finish.

milljam (682) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 30, 2009
Uck. Tasted like typical crappy fruit beers--like drinking the milk after a bowl of fruit loops. The worst part is the watery-ness. Insubstantial.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 15, 2008
Bottle. Pours a two finger white head that fades to a lumpy layer leaving some lace. Cloudy amber color. Medium-strong carbonation and medium bodied. Sweet fruity nose. Flavor sweet boysenberry, hops are balancing, clean finish. Would make a good summer beer.
