3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at the brewpub. This beer pours a cloudy purple-amber color with a thin off-white head that disappears quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of berries, wheat and malt. Light body with a mildly tart fruity character and notes of toasty malt and wheat. The finish is fruity with a short berry aftertaste. Pretty average overall.

Sample at the brewpub today around lunchtime. Pours a completely opaque rusty reddish brown with a medium beige head. Nose is dank malt, berries, some caramel and creamy wheat. Flavor of sweet berries, caramel malt and a bit of tartness before a sweet berry and wheat finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampler flight at the brewery (Indianapolis, IN). Pours a murky reddish hue, glowing, with a small frothy whitish head, laces small. Aromas are touches of blackberry, mellow sweeter malts, a bit clean overall. Bread, flaked wheat. Initial is medium bodied offering a significant sweet and tart blackberry presence. Pulpy, tannins, moving into crisp bread, some toast, flaked wheat. Touches of estery fruit, some more bread, touches of bready dough yeasy linger into the finish. A lingering touch of tartness, berry, and dryness from the wheat and maybe a touch of grass. Ok. It’s nice that it’s not a sugar bomb, but it seems a touch forgetful. Very "muffin-y".

Kind of like it. Milky red. Old sweet fruit to thw nose. Taste is fruit punch and light lager. Kind of like a blackberry version of a shandy. Best for a warm day mowing the lawn.

Draft: pours a hazy reddish color... Ugly but not... Not overpowering on the blackberry. Perfect for a nice warm afternoon.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy purple-brown with off-white plum-tinged head.
Scent is fruit, more of a general berry-ness than true blackberry.
Taste runs from initial tart to sweet....berry and wheat.
Interesting look, less so the overall taste.
Decent, but no "wow" factor.
