Snuck a two ounce sample from a friend. Red wine color. No head. Aroma is blackberry juice. Sweet at start but weird aftertaste. Glad I didn't buy but wife might like it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle pour. Not horrible for a fruit beer made by ABInBev. Juicy and kool aid like, but sometimes that’s OK.

Hot from alcohol. Aroma bounces between blackberry and alcohol. Dark purple. No head. Very low carbonation. I’m not sure what to make of this. Its not like a beer at all, more like a wine.

SPDickerman (881) - Texas, USA - JUL 29, 2012
DISCLAIMER: THIS IS A VERY SWEET BEER. Pours a deep red with a purplish head that unfortunately dissipates quickly. Definitely smells of blackberries, as expected and doesn’t really smell of much else though the faint hoppiness of beer can be detected. Tastes very sweet and greatly of blackberries with nice undertones of malt and hops. Ultimately has a nice mouth-feel and the palate is pleasing; it has a surprisingly full body for a lager and the texture is rather sticky, as it is so sweet. Has lively carbonation and is rather fizzy, almost like a blackberry soda (and probably flavored with blackberry extract) and finishes sweet.

MrBeerFanatic (807) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Pours a dark purple like some kind of grape soda with medium carbonation. Aromas of soda pop (grape almost). Flavors of sweet grape soda and grain. Corn syrupy feel and taste. Leaves a slightly unpleasant grain aftertaste. Medium to high sweet. A little to sweet.

scooterbub (794) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - JUL 25, 2012
12 ounce bottle. Pours a purple brown with a tin quarter inch head that fades. Taste is of fruit juice, blackberries and some alcohol. Similar aroma. Has a decent body. Easy to drink and rather pleasant, but not quite as good as the Blue version.

jcweaver (768) - VA Beach, Virginia, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Bottle. Just as horrible as Wild Red. Pours almost purple with a small reddish head. Aroma and flavors of horribly sweet artificial blackberry and low grade alcohol. Drain pour for sure.

davey101 (621) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Another gem from match1112. 12 oz bottle into an over sized wine glass. A - Pours a dark purple body with thin light purple edging. Straight 4’Loko style. S - A pretty intense aroma of fake blackberries and a touch of vodka. Such a strong smell! T - How do people drink this? Sugar, sweetener, sugar syrup, black berry jam, and sugar cubes. Its so over the top, this taste like an alcoholic sucralose fruity blackberry bomb. Thick and syrupy. O - There are zero redeeming qualities to this beer. Its cheap and highly alcoholic, but you would have to break through a wall of artificial sweetener and defeat the inevitable headache to achieve any sort of buzz. Just stick with fruited vodka.

bluemooner (586) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Pours a dark purple with a medium purple head. Aroma is very strong berry. Flavor is dominated by fruit, specifically berries and grape. Does not resemble a beer much at all; mostly reminiscent of grape or berry soda. Light body with plenty of carbonation and alcohol not very noticeable. Not good.

purple ruby color, aroma of grain, black berries, flavors of light grain, sweet black berry jelly, med body with lots of carbonation, boring, to sweet, and over carbonated
