Eel River "Acai Berry Wheat"
Fruit Beer (ABV 4%)

[Best served in a Flute]

Rating: 2.4/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 5/10
Palate: 2/5
Overall: 7/20

Poured a cloudy medium amber with a small white fizzy that had no retention at all and no lacing to speak of. The aroma hits the nose right off the bat with a strong dose of berries then light grain malts and a light sweet yeast, and not much else. It tasted very lightly sweet with hints of berries from the beginning to end with the flavor fading very rapidly after the swallow. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a fizzy carbonation. Overall nothing special at all about this brew except the berry flavor. I felt like I was drinking flavored carbonated water!!

    Mark I like Eel River but you are so right on this one. I can't imagine acai berry beer was made for people who like craft beer.
