Pours deep purple into a snifter. Purple head with little retention recedes to bubble surface. Blackberry aromas. Medium bodied with sweet blackberry cobbler front to back. Mildly bitter, rotten seed in the medium-length finish. Not a lot of lager characteristics in this one... but if you like blackberries, it’s an easy drinker, but this could sneak up on you as the 8% is well hidden...

We had this beer at the 2013 Tops of the Hops in Biloxi, MS. This line was a lot like pop, or soda, if you will. The blackberry was our least favorite, but it was still good.

Cough syrup smell and look. All of their flavored lagers are good, just one of each is enough.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a really deep purple with a nice foam head and decent lacing. Aroma is blackberry jam and candied fig. Taste is as expected but more subtle. Not too cloying. No detectable hop notes. Also no detectable alcohol. Nice palate, just nothing to write home about unless you’re into the style.

Picked this up after the brewery tour in St. Louis. Not the best fruit beer I have had, but OK.

Dark purple pour with a small pink off white head. Aroma of nothing hut huge blackberry with a touch of wheat. Taste of huge wheat blackberry with a sweet malty slightly lingering finish. Med heavy body with a very sweet possibly overly sweet finish. Overall good beer but it would overpower food but it would be a great dessert beer that barb would love.. haha.
