Bottle. Clear, deep amber with a hint of purple. Aroma only had hints of blackberry. Taste had even less blackberry. Not really very tart and not really all that sweet. Just kind of average.

Pours clear coppery amber with a thin eggshell head. Aroma is not strong, but it does have a good note of blackberry. I LOVE blackberries! More blackberry in the flavor -which is otherwise rather insipid. Mouthfeel hS weK fizz and not much body.

This is neither tart nor particularly flavorful in the blackberry department. It just tastes like a kinda bland fake micro, which is what it is so, hey, cant get mad at them for false advertising. Its clear and copper colored w/ a head of fine, white bubbles. Its nose is a touch on the malty side w/ maybe a vague hint of fruitiness. Taste is also a bit earthy and malty w/ maybe a very, very slight hint of acidity which I would never have noticed if not for the name of this beer. Overall, aside from not tasting like what youd expect this is pretty good for Blue Moon, I might call it a special bitter or something.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear ruby color with a small white head. A light sugary berry nose. Light dark toffee and chocolate malts, odd berries, almost like overripe sugary flavors. Not very natural. Yeasty. Bizzare brew really. Somewhat drinkable. Tastes a bit like glue flavored with berries.

Notes from shared bottle at Craft. Copper toward magenta pour. Some blackberry, caramel malt, in the nose, medium to light palate heft and complexity. OK, not great.

Transfer from BA review on 4-24-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance Pours an amber color with hints of a purplish tint running through. Upon pouring there is a one finger white head that fades rather fast to leave a light level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell The aroma is strongest of a blackberry smell with some notes of a bready aroma mixed within. Along with these aromas are more subtle aromas of a more grassy and spiced aroma. Taste The taste begins big of a sweet blackberry taste that largely dominates the tastes of the brew. There is a bit of a bready flavor that is present upfront that over times loses its strength. As the flavor advances more toward the end, more blackberry sweetness comes to the tongue as well as a little bit of a sour flavor leaving a very sweet and smooth blackberry flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel- The body of the beer is on the medium side with a carbonation level that is on the average side as well. While a little more carbonation may have better suited the sweet and smooth flavors of the brew, it was overall a rather refreshing feel on the tongue. Overall Sweet and rather refreshing, although not tart like the name would imply (well maybe a very little bit at the end). The flavors are on the simpler side and would make for a nice drinker on a hot summer day, while outside chatting with friends.

Some berries on the nose... nothing else really going on. I do not care for this much but it is easy drinking. Not harsh or offensive.

355ml Bottle consumed in a garden close to Newport Beach, California on 13th March 2014. I didnt like it much! I prefer my beers to have the basic ingredients and not have fruit/herbs/flowers/sugar/pastry/vegetables/grits or whatever thrown in the mask a poor brew. This obviously had something added to make it taste slight sour yet blackberry sweet (like a blackberry?). It was sunny and warm outside so this did me no harm but it isnt my thing: the Short Strawberry beer I had next was even worse (IMHO).

Interesting aroma but not much of a distinct taste. The fruit comes out more as an aftertaste, which isnt what I was hoping for. Looks like a pilsner, I wouldnt buy a 6 pack of this.

Hooray for party beer! 12oz bottle into transparent contempt. Nose is dark berries as in preserves, but not marmalade. Sip introduces facial contortions and thoughts of people making faces while having heavy things dropped on their feet via a Bill Hicks reference. Latent wheat and cardboard. I love fruity beer and this was bad. At least the aftertaste is decent. Cheesy post-latent presence la Hudepohl.
