Overly synthetic. It had a slight blackberry aroma but besides that it was just a forced "fruitier" beer.

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 I’m 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 wasn’t going to be vsb by any means, but when tart is in the name it should at least somewhat live up to it, this doesn’t.

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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours clear coppery amber with a thin eggshell head. Aroma is not strong, but it does have a good note of blackberry. I LOVE blackberries! More blackberry in the flavor -which is otherwise rather insipid. Mouthfeel hS weK fizz and not much body.
