Drank from a twelve ounce bottle purchased from a sampler back at Shop Rite Liquors. Smells of blackberry and slight citrus aromas. Tastes, like it says, a tart blackberry. A well done, complex brew.

Straight from the bottle to my mouth. Nice initial, refreshing hit. But backend aftertaste is too much. Just ok.

Pretty much bought the mix pack for this beer, man Iím a sucker, pours a dark amber brown with an off white head, aroma had a hint of blackberry with a lot of sweetness and malt, the flavor has a little bit blackberry with a really malty finish, I mean I know this wasnít going to be vsb by any means, but when tart is in the name it should at least somewhat live up to it, this doesnít.

Drank out of a bottle. Really sweet but the tartness is overwhelming. Can taste the blackberries. Not my favorite!

Sampled at Rum River Wine & Spirits. This was not very tart, not very sweet, just a mediocre base with some subtle berry flavor.

Bottle. Clear, deep amber with a hint of purple. Aroma only had hints of blackberry. Taste had even less blackberry. Not really very tart and not really all that sweet. Just kind of average.

Pours clear coppery amber with a thin eggshell head. Aroma is not strong, but it does have a good note of blackberry. I LOVE blackberries! More blackberry in the flavor -which is otherwise rather insipid. Mouthfeel hS weK fizz and not much body.

This is neither tart nor particularly flavorful in the blackberry department. It just tastes like a kinda bland fake micro, which is what it is so, hey, canít get mad at them for false advertising. Itís clear and copper colored w/ a head of fine, white bubbles. Itís nose is a touch on the malty side w/ maybe a vague hint of fruitiness. Taste is also a bit earthy and malty w/ maybe a very, very slight hint of acidity which I would never have noticed if not for the name of this beer. Overall, aside from not tasting like what youíd expect this is pretty good for Blue Moon, I might call it a special bitter or something.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear ruby color with a small white head. A light sugary berry nose. Light dark toffee and chocolate malts, odd berries, almost like overripe sugary flavors. Not very natural. Yeasty. Bizzare brew really. Somewhat drinkable. Tastes a bit like glue flavored with berries.

Notes from shared bottle at Craft. Copper toward magenta pour. Some blackberry, caramel malt, in the nose, medium to light palate heft and complexity. OK, not great.
