Patrickctenchi (3401) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - APR 17, 2012
Pours purple with an off-pink head. Aroma is strong blackberry, very natural flavour....you almost expect some real seed grit...high ABV is noticable at first, then settles in. Not really "beery", but definitely a great taste and feel. Do you remember the old "Scot-Lad" brands of soda pop? This is like the blackberry soda one with booze....and thatís not a bad thing. A quirky, fun fruit beer.

Headbanger (3226) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 17, 2013
12oz bottle 6/17/13 (Binnyís Naperville Mix A Six)-40į 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.

Cybercat (3198) - 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 doesnít really smell like a beer. Flavor is pleasant, sweet and fruity - but not really like a beer. Might as well be fruit juice - doesnít quite taste like wine or cider, either. Texture is smooth and fizzy, but body leaves something to be desired. I donít believe Iíll be looking for its "sister" beers.

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

Bottle. Generic artificial berry aroma. Deep purple with a small pink head. Artificial berry and alcohol flavor. Light fizzy body. Really bad alcopop ... ínuf said.

this is the worst of the 3 varieties that Iíve tried of this. tastes like a very nasty variety of mad dog 20/20.

drjay44 (2568) - 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

Damico (2452) - 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.

Sample @ Pickís Liquors. Pours a dark ruby with about a finger of off-white head. Aroma of berries. I canít tell you if itís blackberry per-se, but some type of mixed berry. Taste is heavily sweet...berries. Medium bodied with a highly sticky texture. Lively carbonation and too long of a finish. Overall, not the worst Iíve had. Buy a single, not a 6-pack.
