Appearance: Garnets and ambers under a thin white head which fades into a thin collar. Swirls with nothing special – no lace, no more head.
Nose: Very mild; I have to sniff deep to find not much of anything. A smidge of blueberry pulp and blueberry pie…maybe.
Palate: Blueberry crush hits first and disappears almost as fast as it hits the tastebuds. Tartness isn’t anywhere to be found really. Watery mouthfeel along with watered down blueberry muffins in the back.
Final Thoughts: I have a massive sour tooth so of the three special Blue Moon Seasonal tasters, this one excited me the most. Unfortunately, it was a huge disappointment from start to finish. The nose was virtually nonexistent and so was the palate. Definitely not a winner.

12 ounce bottle poured a light amber color with aromas of light blackberries, some wheat and a toch of malt. Flavors are the same, not much tartness or much fruit, meh.....

Decent stuff. Has a very slight tart taste, nothing like a real sour. Fruity and refreshing

Narnad (1422) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - MAY 23, 2013
Pours a very clean, deep red-amber color with a huge, pillowy off-white head. Aroma has a very funky tartness to it, mild sweetness underneath with some toasted malt and caramel notes to finish. Flavor has a very strong blueberry pie filling flavor with some light wheat character later and a slight metallic finish. Body is very light, slightly dry with a modest amount of carbonation. Overall a "meh" beer. I can see the attraction to it as it’s an okay summer beer but nothing I would consider buying/drinking if it weren’t in a mixer pack.

jmagnus87 (2219) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - MAY 21, 2013
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear dark maroon with a quarter finger of white head. Aroma of blackberries and grains. Taste is light sweet. Artificial blackberry flavor with grains and a little bready caramel. Mwdium bodied with a slightly sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, not bad. Enjoyable, but nothing crazy.

I swear there are a lot of uppity Belgian ale loving hipsters on here. This is a nice beer good fruitiness balanced well with light ale flavor. It doesn’t have to taste like wine all the time to be a great fruit-incorporated brew. Shame its limited release.

Patrickctenchi (3093) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Pours nearly clear, bubbly copper-brown with a whipped tan head. Almost non-existent aroma....just a little grainy malt. Taste is generic "berry"...cheap, carbonated wine cooler-ish. Not tart, not blackberry,.....not much.

Bottle. Nose has some blueberry notes in there, but some nasty skunkiness coming through as well. Taste is quite sweet with nothing to balance it out. The blueberry and skunk comes through also. Bleh.

I guess BM is going for the niches. from a variety case. darker beer. no real blackberry smell. taste is not tart and I wish it were. they probably named this beer when it was an idea. quite medicinal. some blackberry in there but comes across like many other fruit beers. decent co2 saves this beer but there are so many other fruit beers out there that are so much better.

BillKismet (3295) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Mahogany amber body with a 1/3/ inch thick cover. Feint berry nose with a decent tartness. The body is of light berries and water. Balanced finish that is ever so mildly tart.
