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.

RSRIZZO (1902) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 10, 2013
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.

decaturstevo (5535) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUN 10, 2013
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.

j12601 (8000) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Bottle courtesy of Brian at Maxís for Jenís 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.

Bottle shared by blipp at Maxís tasting. Pours light clear amber with no head. Aroma and taste is sweet caramel and sweet berries and alot of graininess. Thereís no tartness here evern thought itís 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.

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.
