2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample @ Pick’s Liquors. Pours a dark ruby with about a finger of off-white head. Aroma of berries. I can’t tell you if it’s 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 I’ve had. Buy a single, not a 6-pack.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Pours a purple color with purple tinted head. Blackberry, jam, fruit drink aromas. Blackberry flavors. Kind of syrupy mouthfeel. On par with Wild Blue.

0.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Pours garnet with a milky purple head. Aroma is mostly blackberry / a generally berry-like tone with a healthy dose of booze and fusel notes. Flavor is pretty much the same. Palate is medium bodied, syrupy and has a cough syrup and light weight oil feel to it. It does a better job of hiding the ultra cheap Malt Liquor+artificial fruit flavor than the Wild Blue, but it is still pretty gross. Berry flavored hangover.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
12oz bottle. Pour is purple/black with almost no head. Looks more like a soda than a beer. Aroma is very sweet fruity. The blackberry aromas and flavors completely overwhelm this beer. This is not a beer for beer-drinkers. This is alcohol disguised as soda for people who don’t like the taste of beer.

Pours purple with a small purplish head. Aroma is sweet blackberry. Flavor is the same with a hint of booze. Like the rest of this line fruity alcopops.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
There’s probably some beer in here somewhere but you’d never know it by the taste. The overwhelming blackberry at least seems pretty authentic and not overly syrupy. Still not my thing.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear brilliant ruby red-purple with a purple-white head that falls after a minute. Aroma is very berry, along with a whiff of vomit. Taste is sweet and bordering on cloying; wish there was some tartness here. Tastes pretty boozy. Thin bodied. This is probably the worst one yet of these weird fruit beers by AB-InBev. Drinkable, though.
