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 didn’t 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.

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!

Bottled. Some blackberries - duh, otherwise pretty damned unimpressive. Not necessary.

It poured a cloudy copper color with a small white head. The aroma was of spice and some blackberries. The taste was of blackberry and a little tart with a light dry finish. Decent.

19 June 2013, bottle. Olden amber, clear, steady bubbles. Nose is cereal malt with only the faintest of blueberries or tartness. Thin body and fizzy. Lots of caramel malt, again only fair blueberries. Really can't find any tart notes. Meh.
