Ratman197 (9820) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Bottle poured a clear reddish amber with a lingering ring of amber foam. Aromas of blackberry, light earthiness and light bread. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of bread and light blackberry with a crisp finish.

daknole (9114) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 28, 2012
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.

Drake (8563) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 17, 2013
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.

shrubber85 (7608) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Bottle. Blackberry and malt aroma. Purple-brown with moderate head. Lightly sweet blackberry and wheat malt flavor. Medium body. Not too bad.

j12601 (6603) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 8, 2013
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.

DrSilverworm (6401) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 29, 2013
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.

blipp (6114) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JUN 1, 2013
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.

drowland (6038) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - JUL 16, 2013
12oz bottle before the Jax Beer Fest. Wife was excited for this one... we should have known better. Reddish pour with a small off-white head. Sweet fruits, blackberry, I suppose, hardly the faintest hint of tartness. People are dumb. These are never good. I’m glad it was free.
