Shared bottle. Pours hazy dark straw with clingy off-white head. Nose is heavy wheat, berries, backup hops. Tastes wheaty, with hops and substantial, well-integrated berry flavors and a tart finish. merc7186 (3142) - North Tonawanda, New York, USA - NOV 7, 2013
A: Purplish/Reddish Hue, Passes Some Light, White Head, Decent /lacing
S: Wheat, Grape Juice
T: Wheat, Blueberry, Cranberry
M: Decent Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Lightly Sweet, Lightly Boozy
Overall, a pretty nice beer but a little too boozy for a sweeter wheat beer. boFNjackson (4201) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 14, 2012
Bottle at a recent bottle share... Poured ruby-reddish, berry juice-like with a thin head. This was surprisingly decent. Wheat Wine style made a great base for all the fruit. Mixed berries and malt sweetness sort lent towards berry-yogurt. Suttree (6466) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 29, 2012
The biggest problem with this beer is that the fruit flavor and aroma was...odd. I actually said that it taste like niacin, or one of the B vitamins. And sweet! oh, so sweet. cloying. I mean, this wasn’t horrible, but a sample was enough. decaturstevo (6339) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - APR 28, 2012
Lightly hazed brown pour with foamy tan head. Aroma is flat/old berries and a brown sugar note. Flavor is sweet brown sugar with a funky flat berry flavor. A strange flat tartness as well. Medium bodied but a tad fizzy for me. From a damn big bottle I’m thankful I didn’t have to drink by myself. Not all bad but not real good.

Hazy orange with a thin white head.
Fruity with alcohol and a medicinal cough syrup aroma.
The flavor is light, fruity with none of the alcohol notes perceived in the aroma.

Pours a clear deep amber with ruby hints and a large frothy, clumpy-lacing off-white head. Has a sweet berry nose with a hint of fruity tartness and malted wheat. Starts fairly full with a chewy wheaty sweetness and some nice berry complexity with a touch of hoppy bitter balance and doughy yeast before a drier sweet-tart finish. A pretty unique and well-balanced beer. koopa (338) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 23, 2010
A: ruby / mahogany color with a nice billowing head that is quite dense. Excellent lretention and lacing. The side of the glass looks like it has been frosted with snow after finishing the drink :)
S: a nice balance of malt flavor, wheat, and a hint of acidic berry. The berries become more pronounced as it warms up.
T: Not much berry flavor which I’m happy about. Just a hint in the background that doesn’t draw your attention away from the beautiful malt and wheat balance. The malt presence is a tad submissive to the wheat flavor which I like.
M: very smooth with a perfect amount of carbonation.
D: Easy drinker all the way! BTW the wax coated swivel top is a pain to remove but classy none the less.

Poured a hazy deep copper color with a large off-white head. The aroma smelled like dirty berries. The flavor was wheaty with berries. Slick on the tongue. Light bodied with a taste and feel of alcohol. A mess. Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 1, 2010
1 Liter bottle. Pours a hazy deep orange amber with a spritzy moderate head- no lace. Aroma is wheaty dough, crackers, light toast, corn flakes, light fruit juice, violets, floral, and blackberry and artificial sweeteners. Flavor is doughy with wheat, some juice, berry, flowery, blackberry, gets a bit solvent and phenolic with earthy leather and astringent finish.
