3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Lots of people on Ratebeer don’t like sweet, fruity beers. I do. It’s not port or sweet sherry, but it still has its charm. The flavor here isn’t sophisticated but it isn’t completely crass. A touch of cough syrup gives way to a mostly very drinkable blueberry quality. Sweet, sweet, sweet, with enough carbonation to make it interesting.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Courtesy of fishingnet. Wow, this looks like an exotic brew. Oops, it’s a macro. DAMN!!!! Pours deep ruby red with rose head and spotty lacing. The aroma is pure fecal nearly rotting diapers mixed with mild fruit berries and sugar fruit candy. Nearly a YUCK aroma. The flavor is fruit extract, mild fruit tartness and punchy fruitiness. This liquid makes me question whether or not this is a beer at all. I think not.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Pours very red light like a red wine with almost no head, with below average lacing. Below average carbonation with a sweet smell of Hawaiian Punch. Tastes bitter and sweet…but this stuff is awful. This is awful and tastes like fermented HI C. Avoid, Avoid, Avoid, Avoid Avoid, Avoid Avoid, Avoid Avoid, Avoid!

Pours a light black raspberry color with a tiny white head. Aroma is sugar coated blueberry candy. Flavor is sugary, blueberry, and a tiny bitter finish.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Poured a red/purple color with a small pink head that disappeared quickly. Has a very strong blueberry aroma and taste. The beer has a light body, thin texture, and a very lively carbonation. Overall, I thought there was to much of a blueberry flavor. It reminded me more of a carbonated wine than a beer.

2.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
It pours a cranberry color with a pink head. The aroma is strong and full of blueberries and some malt notes. Its flavor is overwhelmingly fake and sweet with blueberries adding some tartness. Hop and malt flavors are barely detected. The palate is medium bodied with a sticky texture and the carbonation is fizzy.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours an interesting dark purple with a small pink head. Has an ok flavor of blueberries and an ok balenced sweetness, with a tacky based palate feel. The somewhat high ABV is mostly hidden. Not a bad beer coming from anheuser. Much better than regular busch out of the can and most of their other beers...

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Body is a reddish purple with no head. Smells like a mixture of grape soda and metal. Tastes like some sort of blueberry cough syrup mixed with a little cherry cough syrup. Not a whole lot of carbonation.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Poured clear, brilliant fuschia with a light pink cap for head.. kinda sexy in a way, I suppose. The aroma was a mixture of sweet blueberry and boysenberry with sparkly underlying wheatiness.. not bad, but deep down there seemed to be whispers of malt likka. The flavor focused more on the blueberries, with more sweet meat than tart skin.. grassy notes, pale malt, and honey beneath.. deeper yet is rough, cheap perfumey booze that builds through the finish, where it takes on the character of Leinie’s Berry Weiss, which is NOT a good thing.. sticky finish with artificially-sweetened berries and corny alcohol warmth. Medium-bodied and effervescent on the palate with thick, sticky sweetness on the back.. started out better than it finished.

1.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2008 12oz bottle. Intense purple color. "Perfected" aroma I’m sure. Wow. This one really sucks. That’s saying something, because I’ll defend the Chapeau Lambics all day long. This one is utter trash. Too strong to be mellow and enjoyable. Way too artificial to enjoy for the blueberry. Nasty stuff, reminiscent of a Mad Dog 20/20. AB does it again. Worst part is they disguise the bottle like it’s a true micro.
