look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

On tap at Market Street Brewing Company in Corning, NY.

Pours a golden yellow, slightly darker than the regular lager, with a small half inch head, and a good amount of lacing.

Smells like blackberry juice, and really nothing else.

The underlying lager is actually decipherable underneath the blackberry in the taste, thankfully, but it's still second rate. There's a bit of lager yeast, and a slight carb bite, with a syrupy blackberry juice flavor overriding everything. Tastes good, but not really like beer.

This one is light bodied, with a medium amount of carbonation. Fairly drinkable.

Not bad, but this doesn't seem particularly well-crafted. The lager and the fruit additions don't meld together like I'd hoped.

Pours a shade darker than golden with a thinnish off white head that dissipates to a ring. Smell is sweet syrupy and fruity with a bit of a honey grainy edge. Smells like someone poured blackberry syrup into their regular lager. Taste confirms that my nose is working. Very sweet fruity taste attached to a backbone of hay and grain. Sickeningly sweet artificial flavors abound with this one. Fizzy carbonation medium body with a syrupy mouthfeel. I should have known better than to order this one, but it was a nice sunny day and we were sitting outside, it seemed like a good idea.

Pale golden color with white frothy head. Looks very good. (look is the best thing this beer had going for it)

Smells of sour blackberry with some off floral scent.

Carnbonation hits on the sides of the mouth with a sweet blackberry up front finnishing with a sourness in the back. The sweet and sour here were just overpowering and almost sickening - not a fan.

The beer pours a hazy golden color with a nice white head that fades to lacing. The aroma is good. It has your basic pilsner malt scent; low hops, but with a wonderful blueberry nose. The taste is good as well. I hear this is basically their lager with blueberry extract, but the extract really improves the taste of this beer. The grainy pilsner malt flavor is hidden just enough by the fruit flavoring. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a low bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a very drinkable beer. It's light, refreshing, and a real hit with the ladies.

I am not a fan of the vast majority of fruit beers, which are only synthetically injected. They must sell to some crowd to be included in lineups, and this must be a case in point despite poor ratings by a knowledgeable crowd. This sour lager had the addition of blackberry juice and no aroma, suggesting an injection of something. It's clear to me it's artificial. Thin, and a falloff in appearance from the regular lager.

The beer pours a cloudy golden color. I didn't see the purple tinge that the beer description claimed. Not too much head. There are blackberries in the aroma, but they are not overpowering. Definite blackberries in the taste. There is some maltiness behind the berries. It was actually very smooth and refreshing.
