COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This brew combines 2-Row Pilsen malt, a hint of Crystal malt, and of course, plenty of malted wheat. A hint of blackberry at the finish makes this beer a real thirst quencher! For the health conscious, Blackbeary Wheat has less than 6 grams of carbs and under 125 calories per bottle!

Bottle at home. Pours clear gold with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is wheat malt and blackberry. Flavor is malt and blackberry with a dry finish. Light body and moderate carbonation.

The short of it is that this beer does not have enough of a flavor to be a drain pour. Fermi described someone's argument that "it was not even wrong" and this is how I feel about this beer. Chilled enough, it will pass for a refresher, but don't mistake that for a recommendation. The pale yellow-orange liquid pours nicely, with moderate, quickly dissipating head, moderate carbonation. The smell is somewhat offputting with a distinct but faint presence of rotten fruit. The odor is likely stronger when the beer is not chilled to 38F, but I'd be hard-pressed to describe it as "aroma". This only gets worse when you taste it. Although not overwhelming, the constant presence of musty black-grape flavor is distracting and bothersome, but is clearly meant to be a "feature". The rest of the flavor is missing in action -- taste more like flavored mineral water with a drop of cheap vodka. In some parallel universe it may give Leinie a run for its money--but not in mine (and I can't drink Leinie with a straight face). This alone would make me think twice about buying LT. I was initially unimpressed with LT festival samples but wanted to give them a full try. This appears to be the worst of mediocre lineup. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2013 Pale, little head, a bit fizzy, slight fruit (blackberry?) light in body and light in flavor. Not bad, but kind of disappointing.

Poured from 12oz bottle. Very unremarkable. Almost disgusting. Just not a very good fruit beer. Very disappointed in this offering from Long Trail. --you've been Dubbed.

Not much aroma. Has a bit of a sweet blackberry taste, but not too much after that. J

clear, super light gold/medium straw pale yellow color. modest head. faint fruity nose. light fruit flavors -- somewhere between raspberry, blueberry and blackberry. light body. a bit of a sweet note mixing with wheat malt tanginess. really refreshing. clean aftertaste.

pours a light golden with an average white head. This beer is no good at all. It is grainy and lightly bitter, it has a sour bitter fruit flavor and is very plain!!

Tasted numerous times and disliked it everytime. Tastes like juice mixed with malt liquor.

Generally I like any Long Trail but this was at the lower end. Poured a light golden with white head. Had a blackberry sent with faint hop smell, overall not much taste. If someone offered it, Id have one but dont think Id buy one.

Miller lite hidden in a micro? Bland, bland, & then an abrupt tasteless finish. Pours boring, smells ok w/ a hint of the blackberry, but extremely boring taste & I paid $7 for it at a baseball game! Ehh, skip it!
