Hardywood Blackberry

A blackberry wheat beer made with 1,000 lbs. of blackberries per 40 BBL batch. That’s roughly 1/4 lb of blackberries per bottle. I would say that seems to be just the right amount of blackberries to give the beer a nice refreshing and tangy flavor without overpowering it with blackberries. This beer also has a little rye and obviously some wheat in it that add a spicy and lemony flavor, perfectly complementing the blackberries. It comes across as nice and light, almost like a slightly fruity white wine. It could sneak up on you easily with a 6.8% ABV, so watch out. Still, this is perfect for a hot day, with some grilled corn on the cob and a burger. I would give it four out of five proper pints.
