2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a light gold with a weak head for a wheat ale. Aroma is light biscuity malts mingled with berry fruit aromas and a whiff of spice. Body is thin, palate weak. Flavour is 2 dimensional with biscuity wheat malts dominating the front side , some berry tones and weak hop bite in the light, drying, clean but liquid finish. Very thin for a wheat ale and the berry flavout seems synthetic. Not one of this brewer’s better efforts.
August 27, 2011 - on draught at The 2011 Golden Tap Awards @ BeerBistro. Hazy slightly amber gold with a small frothy off-white head. Smells like blackberry jam - sweet - nothing else. Taste is better, sweetened blackberry, but some nice grassiness. Light body, acidity and carbonation, quick finishing, slightly harsh sugary aftertaste - if you like blackberry, you won’t hate this - probably. yrstruly (333) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 24, 2012
Pours hazy amber with a minimal white head. The aroma is of blackberries, bubble gum and wheat, with some unidentifiable spices. The taste is well-balanced, with malt up front and a bit of hop to finish. Not much fruit comes through in the taste, and the body is kind of thin for the style. solidfunk (9033) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUL 16, 2012
Smells like blackberry with a little malt. Pours a cloudy white wheat colour. Soft carbonation, a nice feel on the palate. Taste has wheat, yeast and more fruit. A touch of sourness and some malt. Good. On tap at The Rhino. Tessic (1159) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 1, 2012
This fruit poured a clear, medium yellow colour with a big, bright white head. To the nose there are scents of vinegar, ripe fruit, brown sugar and butter??? First sip was light on the carbonation with flavours of hops, black berry jam and perfume. finish was a little bitter with sweet hop flavour lingering.

On tap at C’est What?. Hazy golden pour. Aroma is very fruity and sweet. Jam, candy, bubblegum, you name it. Medium body, slick. Very low on the usual yeasty character of a wheat beer. It’s not offensive but the one-dimensional fruitiness gets pretty tiring. Am I drunk or is that a suger rush? You get what’s advertised and it’s passable. cyrenaica (1143) - Milton, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 24, 2012

I tried this beer on draught at "C’est What" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer pours a hazy golden colour with a weak off-white cap. The aroma is blackberry, some greains, and weak floral hops. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour was tart fruit, weak grains, and some bitter hops. Not something I would try again as this brewery has better beers.
For a light-bodied flavoured wheat beer, this is reasonably good. It lacks the cloying sweetness that is all too common with other fruit wheat beers. Beyond that it is fairly basic, but enjoyable nonetheless. Spab (3905) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 27, 2011
On tap at C’est What 24 Hours of Beer. Pours a clear golden colour with large, lasting white head. Aroma is very prominent, very sweet (almost bubble-gummy) berry. Flavour has same berry sweetness although mixed with a tinge of sourness and some light wheatiness. Very sweet, but not sickly so and quite refreshing. (1000th rating). blankboy (7714) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 18, 2011
Draught or bottle (I didn’t note it) at Golden Tap Awards 2011, beerbistro. Pours a cloudy copper-gold with a small diminishing white head. Aroma smells like candy or jam or something, it’s too sugary sweet and artificial for me, along with some wheat and malt in the back. Flavour’s no better, it’s grainy and wheaty along with lots of artificial-tasting blackberries and a light bitter finish. Average bodied. Just O.K., at best, too fake for me.
