3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
bottle - Pours clear, reddish-purple with a small, fizzy head. Itís 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? Itís light to medium bodied and is a little better than the red.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
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
