sodakotakid (230) - Belle Fourche, South Dakota, USA - SEP 20, 2012
Pours a deep redish purple with a purple tinted head. This beer has a nice sweet blackberry taste and is slightly bitter. The high alcohol taste comes out.

It is what it is and it had to be conquered. It’s extreme blackberry in a lager form.

berkshirejohn (4674) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2012
12oz bottle from Wegman’s King of Prussia, PA. Raspberry red with a thin pink head and lively carbonation, fruity aroma - presumably blackberry with some underlying malt to show that there is some beer in there somewhere; surprisingly full bodied, with quite a weight to it, the taste is really sweet and grainy; unfortunately then alcohol then hits the back of the throat like petroleum spirit, making it more like a cheap alcopop. Worth a try - but only once.

jcweaver (768) - VA Beach, Virginia, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Bottle. Just as horrible as Wild Red. Pours almost purple with a small reddish head. Aroma and flavors of horribly sweet artificial blackberry and low grade alcohol. Drain pour for sure.

damzz (278) - Massachusetts, USA - SEP 6, 2012
Pours red wiith off white reddish head that lingers. Nose is blackberrys. Palate is blackberrys with lager lightness. No hops. It is what it says it is. Given its sweetrness, Drink well chilled.

PorterPounder (5696) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 27, 2012
Seaside, Fl - Modica Market - 12 oz bottle. Pours a dark purple, light off white head. Pleasant aroma of blackberries, a hint of vanilla. Flavor is full of potent blackberries, a hint of booziness, some traces of blackberry syrup, 12 oz is enough - edging towards cloying. Mouthfeel is a bit harsh. Kind of a guilty pleasure.

rumproasts (3232) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 18, 2012
this is the worst of the 3 varieties that I’ve tried of this. tastes like a very nasty variety of mad dog 20/20.

bhensonb (11491) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 14, 2012
Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento as Shadow’s Wild Black. Pours dark and ruddy with a slight creamy pinkish head. Smells like fresh blackberry. Flavor is sugary blackberry with a fairly nasty wheat? aspect? Or maybe rice and blackberry don’t go well together? At 8% I’m suggesting that this is flavored Natty Daddy. These big brewers just rearrange the plumbing and anything goes.

blkitson (158) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - AUG 11, 2012
Grape Nehi for adults - what could be better. One could drink this all afrernoon and get really blown away. A totally different taste

shadey (1910) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 10, 2012
12oz bottle. Pour is purple/black with almost no head. Looks more like a soda than a beer. Aroma is very sweet fruity. The blackberry aromas and flavors completely overwhelm this beer. This is not a beer for beer-drinkers. This is alcohol disguised as soda for people who don’t like the taste of beer.
