Samuel Adams Blackberry Witbier

I recently reviewed, and didn’t particularly like Samuel Adams Cherry Wheat Ale.   I’m happy to report that their Blackberry Witbier is, in my opinion, a much better example of a fruit beer.  I like the wheat ale base for a fruit beer as it’s nice and mild, and really lets the fruit shine.  In the case of the Blackberry Witbier, there’s just the right amount of blackberry there.  It’s every present, but not overpowering.  There’s a bit of blackberry in the nose, plenty in the middle, and it fades to a balanced finish.  Fruit beers aren’t my favorite, but this is a pretty good one.

I give it a 3.5 out of 5.
