Pours a hazy golden color with a medium white fluffy head. Aroma is dominated by berries, with undertones of honey and wheat. Same goes for the body, though the wheat is more balanced here. Thin body, at times pleasant and at others too watery. Has a familiar bitterness that all other Sam wheat beers have, but subdued a bit by the berries. I really can’t decide whether I like it or not, but it’s not bad or poorly made, could be a refreshing summer beverage.

this one worked pretty well too, but i didn’t like it as much as the new blackberry wit because a) the wheat beer underneath was not quite as good and b) the boysenberry was sweeter and slightly more cloying than the black..."

Reviewed from notes: Pours a coppery color with off-white head. Berry, citrus, and fruits on the nose, with just a little hop pine; follows onto the palate. Finishes sweet.

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2010 So this must be Ken Smith on the bottle. Seems like a nice guy, likes a good beer. Hoepfully he’s not to snobby about it.

Appearance-golden yellow body with dark orange cloudiness thick white head pours down and leaves a lace that sticks with the glass all the way down Smell-a heavenly aroma of berries, yeast, and of course wheat Taste- a good blend of berries wheat and yeast with a bittersweet aftertaste Mouthfeel- medium body with above average carbonation This is one of the best bottled beers I have had and the strong point is definately its smell Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 03-13-2007 04:34:05

Bottle. Pours a copper body with a whit head. Awesome aroma of berries and fresh sliced fruit. Flavor is a bit more tame with wheat dominating and some candy sweetness, not bad.

Overall Impression: Out of the LongShot pack from I believe 2007? This was a weird and interesting beer. Old notes had it rated here, so I’ll just trust those...

Pours a clear golden color with a fluffy white head. Aroma is sweet fruity boysenberry syrup, some malt poking through, and maybe some vanilla. Flavor is sweet boysenberry candy, malty, vanilla, and a slightly spicy finish.

Poured yellow with a white head. Aroma of berries. Refreshing berry flavor.

milljam (682) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 30, 2009
Uck. Tasted like typical crappy fruit beers--like drinking the milk after a bowl of fruit loops. The worst part is the watery-ness. Insubstantial.
