4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Coffee District in Delray Beach, FL. 750ml. Shared with friends in small snifters. Pours a deep amber with slight purple coloring (probably from the blueberry puree). Light thin head and very little lacing. Aroma was amazing with blackberries and blueberries. Slight tart smelling as well but not like a sour with brett. Taste was sweet berries..mostly blackberries and blueberries. (For the record blackberries are one of my favorite things in the world.) You get the berries mostly with a rather sweetness but it finishes ever so tart. Kind of wine-like and the 10% alcohol is very well masked. I LOVED IT!

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Probably the sweetest beer Iíve ever had. Taste of berries is overwhelming and to me, the raspberry overpowered the blueberry (thatís not a criticism). The poster who said it tasted almost like wine is right on. Appearance is a deep copper with a thin head. What I love about the appearance is that my pour looked EXACTLY like the one the dude is holding on the label; thought that was pretty cool. Finish is a slight bitterness that transitions smoothly from and complements the tartness of the raspberry. This is a very drinkable beer thatís perfect for the summer. I just wish it was less than (a very well hidden) 10% abv so I could drink more of it!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a medium amber with medium head, medium almost purple lacing. Sweet aroma of berries (obviously) and grapes. Berry flavor is almost overwhelming, gives it a taste approaching wine rather than beer. So fruity its almost hard to get past it. For those who are fans of fruiting the beer it is a must have, for those who arenít I would pass on this one.

Flavor is fruity, caramel, overripe fruits, blue grapes. Finish is soft, somewhat boozey. Medium body, weak carbonation. Very strong, but very good.

On draft at the Livermore Saloon. It pours a golden orange color with a thick off white head. The aroma is thick with blueberries and a little sour wine. The flavor is sweet berries with a thick body, alcohol and a tiny bit of wine barrel with minor tart notes in the finish. Pretty tasty.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Compared to other beers where the first smell, taste, and overall first experience with the beer shines through, this beer took a number of sniffs and tastes before I really understood what was going on here. The aroma is the most disappointing aspect of this hybrid beer. It is quite lacking. The flavor is another story. After a couple of sips, allowing your mouth to really adjust to what it is experiencing, it comes through; blackberry, sweet blackcurrant, just overall berry explosion. It advertises as blueberry, but really its just a sweet berry flavor. I will agree that it is quite one dimensional and sweet, but for people who like this, cheers! Not my thing.
