PorterPounder (5200) - 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.

So itís like Wild Blue, but with blackberries. This pours a deep purple colored brew with a light purple colored head. The nose is sweet with lots of fruit. There is blackberry along with a hint of toast. The taste is decently sweet blackberry juice with a mild light brew underneath. The taste is not boozy considering the abv. The mouth feel is sticky and thick.

TheBeerGod (5053) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - DEC 2, 2012
Bottle. Purple in color with a short, light purple head. Aroma is super sweet and smells like candy with blackberry jelly. Taste is also rather sweet with strong fruity candy notes and lots of blackberry jelly. Body is light-medium and has strong carbonation with lots of sugary stickiness. Ends the way it began - candied fruit and blackberry jelly. Yeah, this really isnít a beer but is more of a dessert. Either way itís easy to drink and isnít horrible despite the reviews.

jredmond (5031) - Manhattan, New York, USA - FEB 2, 2013
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.

thedm (4888) - Fort Wayne, USA - DEC 31, 2012
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.

kramer (4690) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 12, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear pinkish purple body with a super fizzy pink tinged head that faded to a very thin film. The smell of this is hitting me from two feet away. Smells like grape soda mixed with jelly. Canít imagine anyone would guess this was a beer simply by smelling it. Tastes like grape soda mixed with food dye and some grain alcohol. It has a very chemical laced lingering finish that really sticks around. Sticky and clingy body with fizzy prickly carbonation. This stuff is pretty bad. I think Iíd rather drink MD 20/20 than this stuff.

Pink/purple with a cream head. Nose is raspberries and cough syrup. Very thin on the palate, water, sugar, cough syrup, and raspberries.

EithCubes (4634) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Bottle. Nose explodes with blackberry / black currant in the Skittles mold, super sugary and cloying. Pours a deep violet-red with a light pink head. Taste is much the same, sugary-sweet and cloying with an off-putting medicinal tone. Syrupy full body with light fizz, just icky icky icky. You might ask why I score this even lower than the comparable raspberry version; well, this one probes new depths of artificiality and the head-shaking medicinal effect is in-line with the worst of tussin-derived offenders. Nasty.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4547) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark red-black color with a large foamy pink head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was all blackberry pie (crust too). The flavor was tart blackberry pie and sugar. Long blackberry pie and sugar finish. Medium body. Very tasty.

This smells a bit fruity and has a blackish color. The flavor, while fruity, definitely has a strong flavor of alcohol and is quite sweet. Not that good.
