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.

Bottle. Not the worse thing Iíve ever tasted. The aroma was definitely blackberry, however the flavor was very manufactured and not natural tasting. Had some kick. Ehh.

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.

"Better than blue, slighly more fake tasting than the red, but a little more flavorful all the same (even if itís generic and not really resembling blackberry). Had to try...wonít again.

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.

topherh (1911) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - APR 19, 2012
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.

shadey (1897) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 10, 2012
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 donít like the taste of beer.

poisoneddwarf (1714) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - DEC 7, 2012
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.

Thereís probably some beer in here somewhere but youíd never know it by the taste. The overwhelming blackberry at least seems pretty authentic and not overly syrupy. Still not my thing.
