On tap at the JH in Wayne, PA. Listed as the Blackberry Blonde. Poured a medium and cloudy pinkish / peach color with a small sized head. Aromas of blackberries, raspberries, and just all around berrish. Tastes of the same but not as strong as the aromas.. Medium sweet with a light tart finish. Thinner body.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5045) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 22, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2007 Sampled on draft at the Pittsburgh brewery this beer poured a cloudy reddish tan color with a small tan head. The aroma is sweet and vaguely fruity. The flavor is very sweet with a strong berry flavor and only a light malt note. There is a light tart finish. Very sugary overall.

zach8270 (3520) - Henrietta, New York, USA - AUG 13, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2008 [draft - John Harvard’s Pittsburgh - Monroeville, PA] Poured a clear and watery looking orange with not much of a head. Blackberries dominated the aroma with a little touch of malt underneath. Good smooth, fruity flavor. You can really taste the blackberries. Mixed well with the maltyness of the beer and left a very pleasant sweet taste.

A very drinkable fruit beer. I like the blackberrys but it was overdone and didn’t mix all the well with the beer. Not bad all and all.

Not a bad beer. Reminded me of Red Stripe w/ fruit juice in it. Actually looked rather sickly and there were very small bits of berries at the bottom of the glass. Interesting but kind of off setting at the same time.
