Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a plum-brown color with a medium sized foamy tan head that faded and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was musty and dusty with a bit of bread and berry. The flavor was sweet and tangy blackberry, cardboard, must and hints of bread and cracker. Medium length sweet and tangy berry and must finish. Medium body. Ok.

Rated two nights ago. 12 oz bottle from the summer variety pack. Aroma is doughy, blackberries starting to go rancid, stale Wheaties, generic beer. Pours clear copper with a medium creamy off-white head with good retention. Taste is bland wheat ale with blackberries not as prominent as they should be. Starts out a little sweet before turning a little tart. Mouthfeel is creamy, carbonation is fairly soft, body medium to thin; starts to get pretty flat 3/4 of the way through the glass. Below average crowd pleaser with little substance.

another bottle from my good buddy cheap. I understand these big companies are trying to get onto the niche of the craft beers, but these brews are light, mild, and average at best. But thanks D for the brew!!!

I am not tasting any black berries nor do I get a tart sensation, smell of no fruit either. Not terrible drinkable just not what I was expecting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

During this Ramadan period of much fasting and prayer I must try for not drink much beer and have other spl things like sex. I wait until after sunset and then end fasting with this blue moons drink with good friend and netcafe owner Ali. It is good like harvest of much berry or date and have tart but good flavours of fruit and beer without much sweet. I do like this nice beer and will have againe tomorrow after sunset fasting period.

12oz bottle before the Jax Beer Fest. Wife was excited for this one... we should have known better. Reddish pour with a small off-white head. Sweet fruits, blackberry, I suppose, hardly the faintest hint of tartness. People are dumb. These are never good. I’m glad it was free.

12 oz bottle- Pours clear reddish purple with a thin off white head that reduces to a collar. Aroma is fruity, mildly tart, syrupy. The taste is about the same as the aroma, simple fruit beer, nothing special and nothing offensive, could have been better.

Pours a clear mahogany with an off white head. Nose is light caramel. The palate is medium body with a malty fullness balanced by a slight bitterness.

Call me crazy, but I thought a beer labeled as "tart" would actually be tart. Instead, it’s a generic fruit beer (no real blackberries obvious) that has a bit of dryness on the finish but that’s about it. Maybe I’m spoiled by having easy access to New Glarus’s many truly special fruit beers.
