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

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Rite-Aid: Poured a medium mahogany colored liquid and created a decent pillow of foam which eventually flat lined leaving the beer naked. Aroma smells similar to real blackberry jam or blackberry syrup but there is no evidence of this smelling like beer. The flavor of this beer is semi sweet with a sharp tartness that is caused by artificial blackberry flavoring. However, there is a lingering aftertaste of dark berried jelly but then again this is also just chemicals made to taste like real fruit. This is an awful fruit beer and I doubt any females would actually want to drink this.

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.

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.
