2.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle courtesy of my real dad while in Georgia. Pours a deep purple body with thin off white/purple head. Aroma is super sweet blackberries and strawberries. Mouthfeel is thin with notes of blackberry, strawberry, black cherries, tons of artificial sweetener, overly sweet candy and horribly grainy lager notes.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Purple color with many bubbles. Aroma sweet and fruity, inoffensive. Light body, carbonation. Sweet flavor. Bit of alcohol. Flavor is I guess blackberry at least by the power of suggestion, not completely artificial tasting but not entirely natural either. More alcoholic soda than beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
We had this beer at the 2013 Tops of the Hops in Biloxi, MS. This line was a lot like pop, or soda, if you will. The blackberry was our least favorite, but it was still good.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sweet, artificial grape aroma. Twist off longneck. Purple-black, clear, carpeting pinky head. Very sweet, boozy, unpleasantly bitter with alcohol, jammy, like a $2 bottle of wino wine. Light body, clingy sweet finish. Overall, like someone dropped a Pop Tart in a bottle of rubbing alcohol. ABC Liquors, Bull Run.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle for The Beerhive in Pittsburgh. Overly fruity without the proper nose. Still, the taste is not bad and I imagine this would be even better during the heat of the summer.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
12 ounce bottle from Wegmanís Leesburg. Given the Wild Red I had, I fear this. Pours a sickly purple color with a thin head that fades almost immediately. Note that I havenít even opened the bottle yet, but thatís my guess as to how itís going to go... Well, itís more of a red color but Iím pretty much spot on. Aroma of big artificial berries, grapes and cough syrup. The taste is pretty much the same... berries, grapes, cough syrup, fairly medicinal. Thick texture, medium bodied, faint booze. This is even more of a train wreck than the other "Wild" beers. Nasty.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy fine to medium sized off-white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a softly carbonated light purple hued colored body. The nice aroma was blackberry. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a strong fruity aftertaste. The strong flavor contained notes of blackberry and mild hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

From a bottle poured a ruby color with a small amount of head. Bitter syrupy raspberry flavor with a lingering aftertaste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear brilliant ruby red-purple with a purple-white head that falls after a minute. Aroma is very berry, along with a whiff of vomit. Taste is sweet and bordering on cloying; wish there was some tartness here. Tastes pretty boozy. Thin bodied. This is probably the worst one yet of these weird fruit beers by AB-InBev. Drinkable, though.
