Super watery blackberry flavor with no tartness to speak of. Weak malty notes dominate what little flavor there is. Total garbage.

RobertDale (3280) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - JUN 9, 2013
12 ounce bottle. Pours reddish brown with a decent white head. Aroma of berries and malt. Taste is blackberries and malt. No tart at all. Not much going on in the taste department.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Bottle courtesy of Brian at Max’s for Jen’s going away tasting. Pours a clear amber with a thin white head. Smells of old paper and artificial berries. Medium bodied, sweet and a bit ugly. Paper and old malt. Sweet fruit. Unpleasant.

podey (637) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Bottle shared by blipp at Max’s tasting. Pours light clear amber with no head. Aroma and taste is sweet caramel and sweet berries and alot of graininess. There’s no tartness here evern thought it’s ever so prominently displayed in the name. Not good.

Not what I was expecting. I got the tartness but none of the blackberry. Not my taste. Will drink in order to finish the beer but not buy again.

blipp (5826) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Bottle. Pours amber with an off white head. Weird fruity sweetness, some off sweet malty notes and grains. I consider myself pretty fair to these macro-pseudo-craft beers, but this one is pretty bad.

Bottle. Reddish brown pour with white head. Smells of wheat and blackberries. Tastes of the same. Not bad, easy drinking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

IrishBoy (3799) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAY 31, 2013
12 oz bottle a gift from my daughter who bought a Sampler Pack. Nose is blackberries, light sweetness, and a slight tart twinge. Clear purple orange with a medium off white head. Flavor is lightly sweet and peppery berries without much tartness.

DrSilverworm (5899) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 29, 2013
Sample from a bottle, shared by Kevin during a game of Kings. Best by Sep/16/13. Clear amber red color. Good thin off-white head. Just a couple loose bits of lace. Medium body. Kind of smooth, lightly soft carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Barely tart at all. Mostly just sweet. Blackberry aroma, kind of artificial tasting, more blackberry flavoring than other beer flavors. Not horrible, nothing good about it though, really. Was excited because of "tart". But it’s not tart. Just your typical BMC fruit beer.

JMerritt (1765) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Bottled. Dark red-brown with a large, fizzy white head that is mostly diminishing. Fake fruity raspberry candy aroma with caramel and cola. Stale malt flavor with hazelnuts and essentially no blackberry or tartness. Dry finish with notes of wet straw and hay. What a mess.
