3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rich golden pour, nice big white head. Aroma is loaded with blackberries, nice tart aromas, wheat and yeast. Flavor is a really good blend of sweet/tart and juicy berries. Actually pretty nice.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 ounce bottle. Blackberry Tart, really? If they want me to compare this to Raspberry Tart, they’re going to be pretty dismayed. Pours a dark copper color with a medium sized foamy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of tart berries with a bit of caramel. The taste is tart fruits with a mild bit of cocoa. Thin-medium bodied.

Bottle. Blackberry and malt aroma. Purple-brown with moderate head. Lightly sweet blackberry and wheat malt flavor. Medium body. Not too bad.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Notes from shared bottle at Craft. Copper toward magenta pour. Some blackberry, caramel malt, in the nose, medium to light palate heft and complexity. OK, not great.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle courtesy of Brian at Max’s for Jen’s 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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear ruby color with a small white head. A light sugary berry nose. Light dark toffee and chocolate malts, odd berries, almost like overripe sugary flavors. Not very natural. Yeasty. Bizzare brew really. Somewhat drinkable. Tastes a bit like glue flavored with berries.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.
