3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear dark maroon with a quarter finger of white head. Aroma of blackberries and grains. Taste is light sweet. Artificial blackberry flavor with grains and a little bready caramel. Mwdium bodied with a slightly sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, not bad. Enjoyable, but nothing crazy.

I swear there are a lot of uppity Belgian ale loving hipsters on here. This is a nice beer good fruitiness balanced well with light ale flavor. It doesn’t have to taste like wine all the time to be a great fruit-incorporated brew. Shame its limited release.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours nearly clear, bubbly copper-brown with a whipped tan head.
Almost non-existent aroma....just a little grainy malt.
Taste is generic "berry"...cheap, carbonated wine cooler-ish.
Not tart, not blackberry,.....not much.

Bottle. Nose has some blueberry notes in there, but some nasty skunkiness coming through as well. Taste is quite sweet with nothing to balance it out. The blueberry and skunk comes through also. Bleh.

I guess BM is going for the niches. from a variety case. darker beer. no real blackberry smell. taste is not tart and I wish it were. they probably named this beer when it was an idea. quite medicinal. some blackberry in there but comes across like many other fruit beers. decent co2 saves this beer but there are so many other fruit beers out there that are so much better.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Mahogany amber body with a 1/3/ inch thick cover. Feint berry nose with a decent tartness. The body is of light berries and water. Balanced finish that is ever so mildly tart.

Overly synthetic. It had a slight blackberry aroma but besides that it was just a forced "fruitier" beer.

12 oz. bottle. Flavor is a subtle sweet blackberry. Really not much tartness present. Thin bodied. Reasonable effort.

Not as fruity as I had expected, and nearly enjoyable. Buy the 12-pack sampler to have a try or two, or three.
