Drank from the can..I can taste what it looks like. This is like what you get if you mixed ípurple flavorí with íred flavorí. Sweet but not nearly as sugary as others. Not as harsh as others with a bearable finish and aftertaste. Ive certainly drank worse.

Can from Smoker Friendly. Sweet and fruity in flavor. Fairly inoffensive. Decent alcopop beverage.

Can. The deep purple body looks nearly black in the light. There is a light purple head on the edges of the glass. The sweet black berry nose makes me think of freshly pressed juice and jelly made from blackberries. Notes of bread crust are also present. The flavor is deep and rich with blackberry jelly. It is a little metallic on the finish. This one tastes decent, but is just a little too much, nearly cloying with the fruit. An aftertaste of vegetable matter is also present along with a little bit of alcohol.

phaleslu (7363) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 15, 2015
24 oz. can from anywhere. Pours a deep indigo color with a fizzy purple-tinted head that fades quickly into a ring. Itís like a rich berry Kool-Aid, just sugary and fruity and candy sweet. Thereís some balancing clear soda to it, as well. Light-medium bodied, with a sweet, fruity mouthfeel and moderate to medium carbonation. Delivers on what itís supposed to be.

Ibrew2or3 (7361) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 12, 2015
24oz can pours with a kool-aid colored deep blue body that supports a tiny island of bubbles. The aroma offers up nice smelling berry juice with a sense of 7-up soda in the background. The taste is similar as it pulls up berry juiciness blended with a thin sweetened tannin tartness. The modest tartness blended with the juicy fruitiness reminds me a bit of the pre craft beer wine cooler days of the late80s. Not too offensive.

24 oz can from a local Kroger. Pours a strange purple color, much like juice, with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor are very sweet, berry and grape fruit juice, some solvent like alcohol, very juicy but not in a good way, Flintstone vitamins, I would rather have good ol juice.

It definitely is what it is lol..... Itís fake, but if you donít drink soda but like soda, youíll like it. I love it, drink this flavor about once to three times a month and double it up with a plain beer. I like it every time, sweet and carbonated. Lol..... Iím one for g&tsv

Very smooth with a mild blackberry flavor and enough alcohol to give it a little bite, but no hint of hops or ale flavor. Donít try to suck in air while drinking to savor the bouquet or you will choke. Drink it slowly and responsibly and you will enjoy it.

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2015 From a big fricken can, 24 oz. Pour is dark purple colored brew. Somewhat soda aroma. Good co2 on first impression, with fresh berry flavor, not as artificial as I thought it would be. A little soda like in its presentation. But now the bad newz, Has a background alky feel that cleans your palate like mild turpentine. Mild, mind you, but its still there. This makes it difficult at times. From the first swig that sterile cleaning fluid attribute lets you know that after 24 oz, you will be buzzed. I think those volatile fumes are up my nose like a rubber hose, heheh. Towards the finish the flavor starts to get on my nerves.
