Smells like grape juice, looks like grow juice. Surprisingly, it tastes pretty good blueberries and blackberries are very present and has a really enjoyable sour finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rate from a bottle, at least a year ago, back when this wasn’t allowed to be rated on RB.. Clear dark red color, bubbly pink head. Medium body, kind of syrupy, light carbonation. Sugary sweet taste. Artifical tasting. Aroma of black berry, light blueberry, all syrupy. Overall, just a sugary sweet artificial fruit alcopop

bhensonb (13614) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Bomber from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours dark purple/red with a transient pinkish head. Aroma of dark berries and apples. Med minus body. Flavor is rather tart. Lots of berry. Apple follows later. Tho I am beginning to think the apple supplies the tart. Even tho tart, it reminds me of the olden days drinking glass after glass of boysenberry juice at Knotts Berry Farm.

stevoj (3608) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 6, 2014
Berries add a very fruit/grape "juicy" quality to this cider, making it highly drinkable, very refreshing on a hot day. Bluish/purple on pour, sweet fruit nose, taste reminds me of grape juice. Hard to believe there’s alcohol in this....
