Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 12, 2011
On cask at Cloisters. Pours a golden colour with a decent white head. Aroma of RIbena blackcurrant cordial, grassy hops and caramel. Similar flavours of blackberries, Ribena, caramel and alcohol. Mild carbonation with a mildly oily mouth-feel. Also a little bitter. Very nice.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2008
Cask at Ealing beer fest. Aroma is one of the best in the beer world, super blackberry tart, really fruity and awsome. Taste however has some artifical character which deters it from being truly great. Could honstly be the best fruit beer ever made with a little more work.

Leighton (9833) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2010
Cask at the Market Porter, London. Pours clear gold with a soft, white head. Malt, wheat, grain and blackberry comprise the aroma. Flavor is nice and sweet, lightly syrupy with noticable blackberry notes. Light to medium in body with average carbonation. Has a sweet, fruity finish with very mild, earthy bitterness. Good beer. Nice fruit character that’s not over the top.

jackl (3859) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Cask @ CPK. The pour’s a medium gold color with a tight, creamy head. The aroma’s of soft blackberry jam sweetness. Light lemon peel. Floral countryside. The taste is bright floral hop. Light pale malts, hints of citrus. Just a touch of raspberry ripple and blackberry. Light body, fine carbonation. This is on great form. Overall, a really nice beer. Understated.

Cask handpull at Ship & Mitre, Liverpool. Orange/gold with thin beige head. Dusty/blackberry aroma. Acidic blackberry in mouth, juicy sharp blackberry on finish. Does exactly what it says on the tin. Very tasty and I love the fruit.

RichardW (1370) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2009
Cask, Tynemouth BF. Wow! A really grassy aroma leads into a fantastic mix of pale hoppiness and superb fruity complexity. The blackberry is subtle, but it lingers and gets all over the tastebuds and lasts long into the finish. Reminded me of fizzy childhood sweets. Delicious!

Koelschtrinker (9994) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAR 21, 2013
Dunkel malziger und trockener Antrunk. Zwischenzeitlich angenehm hopfig, wenig bittet, war sich zum Ende noch leicht steigert. Zum Ende sticht der Hopfen hervor, würzig, trocken. 12/10/12/12//11
