3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Transfer from BA review on 9-13-13-
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a quite ruby purple color with a one finger purple tinted head floating atop the beer upon pouring. The head is quite fizzy and fades quite rapidly, leaving almost no lacing on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is big and sweet of a blueberry smell. This aroma largely dominates the smell, but some other light aromas of candy like smell mixed with a bit of a sour berry and cherry smell are there as well. Overall it smells like berry kool-aid.
Taste – The taste begins with a sweet berry flavor of blueberry mixed with a bit of raspberry and cherry. Along with these sweet flavors are some light tastes of malt. As the taste advances from the initial, it gets even sweeter and more berry candied flavored. With a little bit of an alcohol flavor coming to the tongue at the end, a very sweet berry flavor is left on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather thin for a brew of 8 % abv with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. Both are rather appropriate for the very sweet and berry flavors of the brew.
Overall – While massively sweet, the flavors are not all that off. It tastes kinda like a berry flavored wine cooler. If you want an alcoholic dessert in a liquid form then this is alright, but if don’t want anything very sweet, then you may want to stay away.

Maroon color with an unbeer like purple head. Nose of booberry cereal. Too sweet, with white sugar and artificial blueberry syrup flavors. Makes my teeth hurt.

This is about the only "fruit beer" I would drink. Not a fan of blueberry, which may slightly make this beer rated worse than it should be, but it DOES have a great and decently complex taste. It is sweet, but not too sweet, and doesn’t have much head to it.

its an acquired taste, its almost like a beer wine hybrid, with a definite blueberry taste. the high alcohol content is a plus.it would probably be best when paired with food.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was once poured into a pint glass and once poured into a pilsener. There wasn’t any difference.
The appearance was a hazy yet also somewhat clear orange/Red color with a bubbly white head that quickly died. There wasn’t any lacing whatsoever.
The smell had a weird blueberry that somewhat sweet but at other times sour. It never seemed to be combined.
The taste was interesting as it took the blueberry and gave it a somewhat thick graininess to it.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a somewhat decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was fairly subdued. There’s a tart blueberry finish.
Overall, hmmmm...I’m not exactly sure what to say other than it kinda fits the style but I’m unsure if that smell was intentional.

Pours a dark blue. Aroma is faint but has hints of malt, blueberry, and alcohol. Taste is similiar with a hefty alcohol and sickly sweet aftertaste. Not a refreshing beer...

It really is what it is, and a really good example in fruit beer. Doesn't taste like 8 %
