2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a reddish purple hue with a white head. Smells of rotting berries. Taste is like a watered down berry sparkling juice, like V8 put out in those mini cans. More of a Smirnoff malt beverage than a beer.

bottle. Amber with a slight purple tinge and small head. Pretty boring wheat ale with the smallest hint of fruitiness. Very subtle, but in this case, I would have preferred something a little more obvious/distinctive.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle stamped: OCT0713-F05102026. It has a deep amber colored pour with a fairly long lasting beige head. The aroma smells very bready and biscuity more than blackberry. But sadly it also reminds me of what my French Fries smell like when I remove them from the deep fryer. The body is light to medium with a bit of astringency. I recognize more blackberries in the taste than in the aroma. So that rescues it a little and makes it more to the described style. Not something I would have often.

Bottle at Drink Beer.. Help People tasting party. Color is golden brown with good carbonation and a thin head. Aroma is faint with just a hint of berry. It has a lighter medium body that gives a crisp clean mouth feel. Flavors a bit weak giving very little berry. Overall its just a weak fruit brew.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Deep copper pour with off white head and lace. Aroma is sour malt and a hinto the blackberry. Light blackberries a flavor of an octoberfest or marzen. A sweet start with a light fruit. Watery and thin. Not much but not terrible.

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