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 (1838) - 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.

Decent summer beer. Poured from the bottle. Its appearance is red and light brown. Has a very mild aroma, slight fruit bouquet. Clean white head. Good tasting fruit beer, with a hint of blackberry.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 26, 2013
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.

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

Narnad (1471) - 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.

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.
