Great beer. You get the nice ale flavor with just a touch of tartness from the blackberry without being overpowering. It's enough to make the taste just right. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

Kinda gimmicky. Berry and wheat aroma. Pretty copper color with a purple hue. Light palate. Blackberry flavor with a slight harshness. Wheat aftertaste. Not too unique.

Bottle from variety pack. Amber color with a froth off-white head. Aroma is light malt and berries. Flavor is slightly blackberry but also caramel and chocolate with a lingering sweetness on your tongue. It is like a blackberry filled caramel truffle.

No. Picked up a couple as part of a summer variety pack and so far both offerings I have tried have missed the mark. This one pours a cola color, without much an aroma. It tastes more like coffee than blackberries. Had high hopes for this, as I enjoy a fruit beer now and then, but this just does not get it done.

Pour is a cola brown with a small white head. Aroma is berry, not much else. Flavor is a slight berry but overall just sweet sugar water. Not real complex but very sweet.

Drank from a twelve ounce bottle purchased from a sampler back at Shop Rite Liquors. Smells of blackberry and slight citrus aromas. Tastes, like it says, a tart blackberry. A well done, complex brew.

Straight from the bottle to my mouth. Nice initial, refreshing hit. But backend aftertaste is too much. Just ok.

Pretty much bought the mix pack for this beer, man Iím a sucker, pours a dark amber brown with an off white head, aroma had a hint of blackberry with a lot of sweetness and malt, the flavor has a little bit blackberry with a really malty finish, I mean I know this wasnít going to be vsb by any means, but when tart is in the name it should at least somewhat live up to it, this doesnít.

Drank out of a bottle. Really sweet but the tartness is overwhelming. Can taste the blackberries. Not my favorite!

Sampled at Rum River Wine & Spirits. This was not very tart, not very sweet, just a mediocre base with some subtle berry flavor.

Bottle. Clear, deep amber with a hint of purple. Aroma only had hints of blackberry. Taste had even less blackberry. Not really very tart and not really all that sweet. Just kind of average.
