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.

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark red-black color with a large foamy pink head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was all blackberry pie (crust too). The flavor was tart blackberry pie and sugar. Long blackberry pie and sugar finish. Medium body. Very tasty. Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 27, 2012
Bottled. Poured clear burgundy with a pink-tinted beige head. The aroma picked up lots and lots of blackberries with honey and pale malt backing.. as expected and not particularly enticing. The flavor found sweetened blackberry meat, honey, and a touch of vanilla at the core.. lightly tart blackberry seeds, black pepper, and prickly carbonation around.. copying and a bit sharp on the finish. Medium-bodied with high carbonation on the palate.. too sweet.. OK feel overall. There is a market for this, and I’m not it. wlajwl (6812) - 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. Braudog (6716) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAY 8, 2012
Bottle. Blackberry-hued deep purple. The thin head disappears instantly. Not much of a nose, but drinks with a full-on berry extract flavor. Like the Wild Red, the 8% becomes more evident as it wears on you. Unlike Wild Red, the artificial sweetness in this one grates on you until it becomes unenjoyable. (#4589, 5/7/2012)
kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 12, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear pinkish purple body with a super fizzy pink tinged head that faded to a very thin film. The smell of this is hitting me from two feet away. Smells like grape soda mixed with jelly. Can’t imagine anyone would guess this was a beer simply by smelling it. Tastes like grape soda mixed with food dye and some grain alcohol. It has a very chemical laced lingering finish that really sticks around. Sticky and clingy body with fizzy prickly carbonation. This stuff is pretty bad. I think I’d rather drink MD 20/20 than this stuff. Patrickctenchi (6590) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - APR 17, 2012
Pours purple with an off-pink head.
Aroma is strong blackberry, very natural flavour....you almost expect some real seed grit...high ABV is noticable at first, then settles in.
Not really "beery", but definitely a great taste and feel.
Do you remember the old "Scot-Lad" brands of soda pop? This is like the blackberry soda one with booze....and that’s not a bad thing.
A quirky, fun fruit beer. berkshirejohn (6501) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2012
12oz bottle from Wegman’s 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. TheBeerGod (6224) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - DEC 2, 2012
Bottle. Purple in color with a short, light purple head. Aroma is super sweet and smells like candy with blackberry jelly. Taste is also rather sweet with strong fruity candy notes and lots of blackberry jelly. Body is light-medium and has strong carbonation with lots of sugary stickiness. Ends the way it began - candied fruit and blackberry jelly. Yeah, this really isn’t a beer but is more of a dessert. Either way it’s easy to drink and isn’t horrible despite the reviews. dwyerpg (6187) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 27, 2012
This smells a bit fruity and has a blackish color. The flavor, while fruity, definitely has a strong flavor of alcohol and is quite sweet. Not that good.
