Samuel Adams Blackberry Witbier

12 oz single from Tower on Buford.
Pretty much exactly as expected.
Pour is a clear, golden hue with a decent head and some lace. Carbonation levels are appropriate and good.
The beer basically looks like, acts like and feels like a simple, well put together lager. There are simple crisp notes that make it very drinkable, and a hint of fruit in amongst the malt and hop balance. Drinks VERY easily and is tailor made for summer drinking in the south. It doesn’t fel or drink much like a traditional Wit at all, so if you’re looking for that, search elsewhere.
Obviously a lot of crossover potenial and plenty of potential for pairing with simple, grilled fare and other light food.
Very little to report here. This is a relatively well made beer that will appeal to the masses in the warmer months. It’s not a beer that many geeks will either have much time for, or perhaps even give much credit to, but if you take it for what it is (and no more), you’ll appreciate the beer for its own (limited) attributes.
Take a sixer to a summer gathering and it might provoke a conversation, and it’s something that your wife may get into. Outside of that, nothing much to report.
