COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Thunder Canyon Brewery’s GOLD medal winner in the fruit beer (other than raspberry) category at the 1998 Great American Beer Festival. Our blackberry honey ale, made with 600 lbs. of fresh fruit and just the right amount of honey, has a beautiful deep ruby color and blackberry flavor and aroma.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass at the brewpub. The appearance was a hazy orange color with some red highlights here and there around the glass. Bar pour yielded no head. The smell started off with a sweet red raspberry and then a light tart raspberry came in to balance and then after that a light sugary sweetness came in. The taste was mainly sweet through the raspberries but after a while the sugary flavor came back. On the palate, this one had a tart and sweet raspberry aftertaste that seemed pretty authentic and I would say that this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. The carbonation was decent for the style and for me. Overall, decent raspberry ale I believe I could take to the dome again.

Hazed cherry pour with off white head and lace. Aroma of blackberry and sweet malt. Light blackberry, sweet malt and no bitter. Medium bodied and fizzy.

enjoyed the weekend of RBWG 2011on tap pours hazy pinish purple with a thin white head. Aroma is floral with tons of berry. Flavor is much the same with semi-sweet berry and a oat/wheat malt base.

Poured deep red with little white head, taste is full of blackberry with a honey sweetness at the end. For my severe dislike of berry beer, this one didn’t displease too much, as it was very unique.

Actually kind of enjoyed this one for its uniqueness. Ruby red/purple pour with a small ivory head that isn’t more than a ring. Aroma is ripe berries (can’t really tell what type) and moderate honey sweetness. Flavor is more definable blackberry...a bit syrupy but good.
