Thoroughly aweful beer. Smells of artificial berries as soon as a it opens, and first flavours on the palate are of an off flavored, tart artificial fruit. Probably the high point for the beer is it’s bottle caps: why wouldn’t you want a purple bull dog. Also, the alcohol is excessive for a lager-like beer with so many other strong, over powering flavours.

MadIndian (2373) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle. Not the worse thing I’ve ever tasted. The aroma was definitely blackberry, however the flavor was very manufactured and not natural tasting. Had some kick. Ehh.

Beerdedone (2609) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle. Pours deep purple with a thin pink head. Aroma was sweet with heavy blackberry and grapes. Flavor was sugary sweet with blackberry, grape soda, artificial berries, alcohol and had a sweet finish.

hotstuff (4072) - Indiana, USA - MAY 9, 2014
Rated on 5-06-2014 (Bottle) This beer has a smooth pink head with a long retention, transparent reddish body, fizzy, lively, fast rising carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is heavy artificial berries, sweet and tart. The flavor is artificial berries, very sweet, lightly sour, and lightly bitter. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is light bodied. The flavor of this beer is yucky tasting. Too artificial and it is a beer I do not recommend.

harrymel (1500) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 12, 2013
Bottled...whatever. Pours a pretty dark purple with a solid light purple foam sheet. Smells like blackberry meat and a little grape juice with the lager underneath. Slightly sweet, but not overly so. Tastes like sugar free, blackberry jelly (not jam), lacks any of the tartness or astringency that comes along with a good, quality blackberry. Really, way too sweet, artificially so. Thin with lower carb than anticipated, which is nice. Overall the beer would be so much better if not for the profound, excessive and reprehensible use of sweeteners. That makes the beer horrid.

Damico (2570) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Pours deep berry in color with a nice light pinkish hue on the head. Aroma brings berry, sweet and delicious. Flavor is similar, sweet berry juice with a hint of lager as the backbone.

thornecb (4373) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Pours deep purple into a snifter. Purple head with little retention recedes to bubble surface. Blackberry aromas. Medium bodied with sweet blackberry cobbler front to back. Mildly bitter, rotten seed in the medium-length finish. Not a lot of lager characteristics in this one... but if you like blackberries, it’s an easy drinker, but this could sneak up on you as the 8% is well hidden...

Pours dark purple with no head. Blackberry aroma and flavor. Slightly medicinal. Okay.

It’s not a bad beer. Excellent if you are looking for something different. I will probably be getting this beer again. Its totally a must try.

12oz bottle 6/17/13 (Binny’s Naperville Mix A Six)-40° in Shaker-Pours purple with a small purple head. Aroma of blackberry. Taste of the same with that same medicinal aftertaste. This light bodied brew is not bad but not good.
