12 oz. bottle. Flavor is a subtle sweet blackberry. Really not much tartness present. Thin bodied. Reasonable effort.

Not as fruity as I had expected, and nearly enjoyable. Buy the 12-pack sampler to have a try or two, or three.

Bottle; poured a dark auburn type color with not much head. Aroma of bread and must, with a not as much blackberry as you would expect. Flavor had a little more punch to it, but still not great. Zesty and blackberry, not much tart to it. Straightforward and ok overall.

Aroma and color is great, taste not so much. Pours a beautiful red with a light white head. Smell is also gear, very berry. Taste however is a little boring. More tart than blackberry, with a weird tart aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nuplastikk (4919) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 23, 2013
12oz bottle. Copper-amber filtered body. Thin, oily off-white head. A pretty straightforward fruit beer, a little sugary, certainly not worthy of the "tart" descriptor. Medium bodied, balanced, easy drinker. Not really good, not really bad, but pretty much what you’d expect from Blue Moon..more enjoyable than anything they try to infuse with hibiscus, chamomile, sage, ect..

Tac (136) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - APR 21, 2013
Pours thick off-brownish head, brown copper color. Aromas of some bread and berries with the hint of caramel, taste is sweat and sour with almost no bitterness.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2013 Tarty and sour but in an artificially bitter way...not the taste one hopes for...sweeter would be nice. X2

Type: 12-oz. bottle Glass: Manzanita pint glass From: Target in Mission Valley (San Diego), Calif. Price: $15.99 for the Brewmaster’s Seasonal Sampler variety 12-pack Purchased: April 17, 2013 Consumed: April 19, 2013 Misc.: N/A Poured a dark caramel amber with 2-3 fingers of khaki white frothy head. Fairly bubbly and could hear the foam bubbling. Minimal foggy lacing on the sides, average-to-above average retention on the top all the way down. Was tough to get a good whiff, really had to work for it. Got dark fruits, faint blackberries and some sweet sugary malts. Really thought there would be more here. Tasted a little more flavorful than the nose, but not that much. Got blackberry, reminding me of blackberry jam, albeit with just a small amount of jam. Some tartness on the tongue after, but not strong enough for me. Light body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt finish. Maybe something was wrong with this batch, but just no flavor. Very bland, nothing something I think of when I see blackberry tart.

Aroma is grainy/bread-like malts, yeast, mild blackberries and a very slight mustiness. The flavor is blackberries, grainy malts, mild sweetness and a tart finish.

~Wheaty aroma with corriander spice. Smells like original blue moon with slight blackberry tartness. ~Pours a clear dark amber color with quickly disappearing white head. ~Refreshing flavor of wheat, blackberry and a hint of chocolate. ~Light bodied, med high CO2, slightly creamy. Quick fruity finish. ~I like where they were going with this, just wish the cocoa and berry flavors came out more in the aroma and flavor.
