On tap at Texas Beerfest. Pours a cloudy copper with a small frothy off white head. The aroma is spice and blackberry. Thin mouthfeel with a blackberry and tart flavor with light dry finish. A good fruit beer from Blue Moon.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft sample at Casual Pint’s tasting event. Clear amber with a purple-red tinge and a lasting spit of foam on top. Mild nose is cracked wheat and a touch of blackberry syrup. Taste is pretty much the same, except even less assertive and more artificial tasting. Light body is watery and has medium carbonation. Pretty well balanced, with not much else going for it. Came in third of the three contestants for my vote in the new fall seasonal running.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rich golden pour, nice big white head. Aroma is loaded with blackberries, nice tart aromas, wheat and yeast. Flavor is a really good blend of sweet/tart and juicy berries. Actually pretty nice.
