"Better than blue, slighly more fake tasting than the red, but a little more flavorful all the same (even if it’s generic and not really resembling blackberry). Had to try...won’t again. Realtater (1) - - MAY 9, 2012 does not count
Is this a beer or a wine cooler? I couldn't tell. Very sweet pronounced blackberry flavor, pretty one note.

Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento as Shadow’s Wild Black. Pours dark and ruddy with a slight creamy pinkish head. Smells like fresh blackberry. Flavor is sugary blackberry with a fairly nasty wheat? aspect? Or maybe rice and blackberry don’t go well together? At 8% I’m suggesting that this is flavored Natty Daddy. These big brewers just rearrange the plumbing and anything goes. bbbeer (878) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 23, 2013
Purple color with many bubbles. Aroma sweet and fruity, inoffensive. Light body, carbonation. Sweet flavor. Bit of alcohol. Flavor is I guess blackberry at least by the power of suggestion, not completely artificial tasting but not entirely natural either. More alcoholic soda than beer. rumproasts (6035) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 18, 2012
this is the worst of the 3 varieties that I’ve tried of this. tastes like a very nasty variety of mad dog 20/20.

Bottle from Blue Dog. Pours turbid, merlot colored with fizzy pink head. Nose is earthy blackberry and red wine grapes. Tastes very sweet, with notes if blackberry, grape juice, and an odd finishing flavor. Light alcopoppy palate that isn’t complex. Lorenasa (160) - Florida, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Drank straight from the bottle. Aroma is of blackberry. Taste like blackberry syrup. The sweetness is overwhelming.

Bottle. Blackberry and alcohol aroma. Purple color with mauve head. Very sweet blackberry flavor with moderate alcohol finish. Tastes like a generic fruit soda with cheap vodka added. Not as horrendous as the Wild Blue. hotstuff (5258) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 9, 2014
Rated on 5-06-2014 (Bottle) This beer has a smooth pink head with a long retention, transparent reddish body, fizzy, lively, fast rising carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is heavy artificial berries, sweet and tart. The flavor is artificial berries, very sweet, lightly sour, and lightly bitter. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is light bodied. The flavor of this beer is yucky tasting. Too artificial and it is a beer I do not recommend. coyforce (684) - California, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Taste is blackberry but not very much beer like. Aroma is weak blackberry and pour is purple with no head.
