Pours an off purple color with minimal head and lacing. Aroma is of sweet berries and slight malt. Taste is predominated by sweet, berry/grape with a slight alcohol backbone. Malt and hops are hardly detectable. Itís closer to a wine cooler than a malt liquor IMHO. Palate is OK. Overall, an interesting beverage and relatively cheap for quick 4-pack try.

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.

Found this bad boy in a Grocery Store. Alloy series! Haha. Pours a dark purple color with some bubbles. The aroma is all grape drink. Well, thatís it really. Itís grape soda with some dirty alcohol. Man, this is nasty. But it works. Itís an offense to the beer gods, but not undrinkable. I finished it.

I am so not looking forward to this thing. What Iíll do for a new rating, though. I expect drainpour here, but you never know. 24 oz can that I got for free, expired about seven months ago. Aroma is sickly sweet berry along with a hint of vomit. Smells like a kidís drink. Pours purple but looks ruby red in the light; has a purple head that collapses into a ring after a few minutes. Taste is like mildly spiked punch, artificial shit bomb. Itís sweet with a little tartness, no bitterness. Average carbonation, slick mouthfeel that feels oily in a dirty way. Yeah, prediction accurate: drainpour.

ugly 24 oz can bought from a local Mom and Pop convenience store. $1.79 surprisingly attractive to look at deep black/blue with a nice thick tan head. Aroma not so nice grape Kool aid to be honest. Taste a little more balanced and less grape more artificial blackberry ( sometimes called blue raspberry). Palate very sweet then drying. Weird stuff and stretching the limits of "beer"..but dear god this would be a great "panty dropper" among the student bunch

Where and how: can 24 oz
Aroma Ugh! Artificial sweet cloying aroma of what meant to be berry like. Sweet with dry vodka burn. Simply nasty.
Appearance :
Top: minimal flat top, tinted.
Base: purple berry pop soda like.
Palate : mid bodied, mid carbonation, rough edges, rough mid and finish.
Taste: elements of liquefied gummy bears with plenty of rough drying alcohol. Reminded me of poor quality sweet alcoholic pop.
Other notes I rated this so you donít have to.

Can. Pours a clear extremely dark purple with a white head that has a touch of purple that dissipates immediately to the edges. Aroma has notes of artificial grape and blackberry that dominate. Flavor has lots of artificial black berry and grape with not much else

Can at porch nite thanks (?) to Raith. No beery qualities to this at all. Tastes like berry soda with rubbing alcohol. Yuck. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
