2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Smells and tastes of blackberry but other than the blackberry it seemed a little light on texture and very clear amber for a beer with fruit and wheat. Itís OK but not something I am going to purchase again unless in a sampler pack that has something else that I want to try.

Bottle poured a clear reddish amber with a lingering ring of amber foam. Aromas of blackberry, light earthiness and light bread. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of bread and light blackberry with a crisp finish.

Bottle from Wal-Mart. Brownish pour with a small white head. Aroma is sweet,and kinda blah. Taste is sticky, a little berry, cardboard, and toasted grain.

No overly blackberryish or tart. Instead, it's a well balanced mild easy drinking ale. Much better than some of blue moons other summer offerings.

I tried four of the seasonal Blue Moon varieties in a row. I expected this one to be the worst, but it was really the "best" in the sense that it was palatable. A little syrupy and not really at all "tart," but its sweetness is mild enough that its pretty drinkable.

12 oz bottle from the half case sampler pack purchased in Virginia. Many weaknesses and very little to justify a second round. Could have been much better.

A clear, brown pour with an off-white head. It has a mixed berry aroma with a malt backbone. The body is light and watery with average carbonation. It has mildly sweet taste with a somewhat dry finish. I didnít really get any tartness out of this beer.

Great beer. You get the nice ale flavor with just a touch of tartness from the blackberry without being overpowering. It's enough to make the taste just right.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 ounce bottle from a variety pack. Pours a tea color with a thine off white head that fades quick. Taste is of black berries, brown sugar, wheat, chocolate and some yeast. Similar aroma. Has a decent, lighter body with a dry finish. Easy to drink and enjoyable, but a bit artificial tasting.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz bottle: Aroma is bready malt note upfront, grassy chinook hops notes, yeast, and blackberries. Appearance is a purple hue with golden poking through a slight purple but most white head on top. Taste is kind of all over the place with the blackberries, a myriad of chocolate malts intermingled with bready malts then some grassy hop backing. This is all over the place. Overall, Bleh- Cheers!
