Deep purple with a quickly fading purplish head that leaves no lacing. Aroma of heavy blackberry and grapes, smells a bit too much like kool-aid and not enough like beer. It kind of tastes like kool-aid (or grape soda) too but at least it pounds the taste of the fruit home unlike a lot of fruit beers out there. It has a bit of artificial aftertaste and leaves me scratching my head to why AB has to make these fruity beers at 8%.

bottle - Pours clear, reddish-purple with a small, fizzy head. It’s got an assertive berry smell that seems artificial. The flavor is very sweet with more fruit punch taste though not as Hawaiian Punch like as the Red. Is that good or bad? It’s light to medium bodied and is a little better than the red.

Cybercat (3512) - Georgia, USA - JUN 17, 2012
Pours a clear dark brown with a thick, though not persistent, tan head. Blackberry dominates the aroma - and I love blackberries, but it doesn’t really smell like a beer. Flavor is pleasant, sweet and fruity - but not really like a beer. Might as well be fruit juice - doesn’t quite taste like wine or cider, either. Texture is smooth and fizzy, but body leaves something to be desired. I don’t believe I’ll be looking for its "sister" beers.

Headbanger (3388) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 17, 2013
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.

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.

queenholly (3019) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - JUL 22, 2012
Bottle. Generic artificial berry aroma. Deep purple with a small pink head. Artificial berry and alcohol flavor. Light fizzy body. Really bad alcopop ... ’nuf said.

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

Beerdedone (2743) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2014

drjay44 (2738) - Salida, Colorado, USA - APR 18, 2012
12 oz. bottle. Pours a fizzy, short lived, pinkish purple, head, over a clear, purple (SRM 20) body.....nose is blackberry.......taste is blackberry, with over whelming simple sugary sweetness, with a lingering medicinal after taste....mouth feel light, alcohol hidden, carbonation makes a soda of the beer. This is as bad as the blueberry concoction of last year. This is simple artificial fruit dominated, carbonated sweetness. Alcoholic soda pop for the kids, just in time for summer. BJCP 4/3/6/3/4
