Long Trail Blackbeary Wheat

Happy Sunday people! Watching the Eagles lose sucks. So it was time to crack a random not-so-good beer. Fitting that it’s black-"bear"-y I suppose. This one causes some beerface.

This beer is light, not even that wheaty, clear, and without much head or lacing to speak of. It’s just… like a Corona or something. It smells like a sweet fruit, so blackberry is accurate enough – although it could just as well be blueberry. The taste is about the same, with water being the main taste that comes through, along with a hint of hops, and maybe some corn. I don’t even really taste the wheat. It’s amazing that for something at 4.0% abv there can be so much difference from a NG Belgian Red of the same style. This is definitely not that drinkable, and its light body does not impress.

Overall, the best part about this beer is the label. Which is kind of cute. Unlike Jay Cutler.
