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.

Bottle. Deep purple pour with no head. Aroma and taste of a grape freeze-pop. A little boozy on the aroma, and some alcohol bite in the flavor. Doesnít really resemble a beer, more of a fruity flavored malternative.

Cybercat (2995) - Georgia, USA - JUN 17, 2012
Pours a clear dark brown with a thick, though not persistent, tan head. Blackberry dominates the aroma - and I love blackberries, but it doesnít really smell like a beer. Flavor is pleasant, sweet and fruity - but not really like a beer. Might as well be fruit juice - doesnít quite taste like wine or cider, either. Texture is smooth and fizzy, but body leaves something to be desired. I donít believe Iíll be looking for its "sister" beers.

PorterPounder (5206) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 27, 2012
Seaside, Fl - Modica Market - 12 oz bottle. Pours a dark purple, light off white head. Pleasant aroma of blackberries, a hint of vanilla. Flavor is full of potent blackberries, a hint of booziness, some traces of blackberry syrup, 12 oz is enough - edging towards cloying. Mouthfeel is a bit harsh. Kind of a guilty pleasure.

It is what it is and it had to be conquered. Itís extreme blackberry in a lager form.

dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - APR 22, 2012
Bottle. I knew this wasnít going to be good going into it but I love blackberries so I thought it would be ok. Smelled like malts and booze. Poured a pale purple. Flavor was infused fruit and alcohol. Horrible after taste. Not a very good beer at all.

wlajwl (3568) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUN 14, 2012
Aroma is blackberries, cherries and a hint of malts. The flavor is blackberries, sweetness and a mild hint of hops in the finish.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 5, 2012
Deep purple with a quickly fading purplish head that leaves no lacing. Aroma of heavy blackberry and grapes, smells a bit too much like kool-aid and not enough like beer. It kind of tastes like kool-aid (or grape soda) too but at least it pounds the taste of the fruit home unlike a lot of fruit beers out there. It has a bit of artificial aftertaste and leaves me scratching my head to why AB has to make these fruity beers at 8%.

berkshirejohn (4209) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2012
12oz bottle from Wegmanís King of Prussia, PA. Raspberry red with a thin pink head and lively carbonation, fruity aroma - presumably blackberry with some underlying malt to show that there is some beer in there somewhere; surprisingly full bodied, with quite a weight to it, the taste is really sweet and grainy; unfortunately then alcohol then hits the back of the throat like petroleum spirit, making it more like a cheap alcopop. Worth a try - but only once.

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