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. Pours dark garnet-colored with a small, lively, pink-hued head. Aromas of sweet blackberry and raspberry, some cinnamon, and black cherry. Sweet flavor, with berry, cough syrup, and booze. Syrupy mouthfeel, slick, with medium/high carbonation. Bah. [1017]

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.

Not bad overall, nice lager flavors but just a little too sweet to put it on par with Henry's Blackberry Wheat. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

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.

12 oz bottle for The Beerhive in Pittsburgh. Overly fruity without the proper nose. Still, the taste is not bad and I imagine this would be even better during the heat of the summer.

Bottled. Poured clear burgundy with a pink-tinted beige head. The aroma picked up lots and lots of blackberries with honey and pale malt backing.. as expected and not particularly enticing. The flavor found sweetened blackberry meat, honey, and a touch of vanilla at the core.. lightly tart blackberry seeds, black pepper, and prickly carbonation around.. copying and a bit sharp on the finish. Medium-bodied with high carbonation on the palate.. too sweet.. OK feel overall. There is a market for this, and Iím not it.

Pours dark purple with no head. Blackberry aroma and flavor. Slightly medicinal. Okay.

So itís like Wild Blue, but with blackberries. This pours a deep purple colored brew with a light purple colored head. The nose is sweet with lots of fruit. There is blackberry along with a hint of toast. The taste is decently sweet blackberry juice with a mild light brew underneath. The taste is not boozy considering the abv. The mouth feel is sticky and thick.

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.
