Tallahassee, Fl - Lucky's Market - 12 oz can - sparkling ruby-red pour, not much of a head at all. Aroma of blackberries, and Red Delicious apples, Flavor has a nice berry sour twang to it, some refreshing apple crispness, a touch of honey sweetness, some Champagne dryness. Pleasant spritz to the mouthfeel, tmoreau (4904) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - DEC 29, 2017
On tap at Ellyn's Tap & Grill in Glen Ellyn, IL., and dispensed to a tulip showing a clear, mahogany tone, with abundant ruby highlighting, a modest layer of off white foam that reduced to a thin ring, and minimal lacing. The nose was expressive fruitiness as blackberry jello and apple. The taste was similar, medium bodied, with lively carbonation, tanginess & lemony tartness, slight dryness, and a clean & crisp disposition. Very flavorful, and not too sweet.

12oz single from New Beer Distros. Still not use to the texture of these wrapped can labels. They make an awful crunchy sound when empty.
Pint glass pour. Body is the color of a concentrated cola. Black, with a reddish brown hue. A flat Guinness? Maybe too dark to call it that.
Billowy purple head rises & falls from my pint glass.
Smells of purple-flavored "drank", blueberry pancake syrup(you know the one that shows up this time of year), lemon, & some oh so faint apples trailing way behind.
Taste is so much of grape Jolly Ranchers & apple/grape juice boxes. Syrupy, rich, oh so so sweet & candy tart. Prickly, dying carbonation. Medicinal on the finish. The Mike's Hard Lemonade version of this(if it exists) would be preferable. obguthr (7013) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - NOV 3, 2017
Jammy blackberry nose, grape accents. Clear purple. Sweet blackberry and apple. Light body, velvety, moderate carbonation. geologyguy (1696) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - OCT 31, 2017
Good raspberry smell but approaching medicinal...taste is similar...not bad but again, approaching medicinal...better with time though...smoothes out and gets less medicinal...had at art bar Halloween 2017 with megan

Draft pour at Snallygaster 2017. Poured a clear, but ruby purple color with no real head to speak of. Some light tart notes, apple, dry apple and blueberry notes. This one was okay. Kleg (498) - The Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 3, 2017
12 oz can. Clear ruby colored pour with a tiny lavender head and poor retention. No lacing. Taste is a mix of very tart green apples and blackberry juice. Dry finish. A little too tart and dry for my liking. 6.0 ABV is well hidden. smaynard6000 (1287) - Apopka, Florida, USA - SEP 3, 2017
Can. Pours a dark burgundy color with tiny pinkish ring of carbonation around the edge of the glass. Heavy blackberry aroma. Tart blackberry flavor and a bit sour as well. Apples are barely detectable. Tartness lingers on the palate. Really nice.
