Review: LongShot Boysenberry Wheat

LongShot Boysenberry Wheat from Boston Beer Company (Sam Adams)
Rating: B+

Second bottle of this I've had, purchased in Atlanta the day of the NCAA championship game (go gators!)

Appearance: Very pale straw in color, slightly hazy despite sitting in the refrigerator for a long time. Good white head, with good retention and lacing.

Smell: Lots of berry aroma. I know this was made with extract, but it smells very fresh.

Taste: Raspberry middle, blackberry finish, raspberry aftertaste - slightly bitter here, really the only place hops show up. That late bitterness keeps it from being too sweet.

Mouthfeel: Very smooth, light enough to be refreshing.

Drinkability: Not a big fan of fruit beers, but this isn't bad.

Serving type: bottle
