Had to give this a shot since I was able to buy just 1.
Pours claret/cranberry with a finger of purplish pink head. good head retention & lacing
S: Berry smell & a touch of mustiness
T: Blueberry pie, booze & metallic hops up front. Serious blueberry & booze starts ratcheting up as this warms. Finishes juicy, with slight tartness & candy like sweetness (sweet tarts or smarties)
MF: Light bodied with minimal carbonation
Drinks okay, but cloying sweetness makes this a one & done. The sweetness makes me think alco-pops not beer, still as good or better than sea dog's blueberry offering IMO. The look & taste of this makes it hard for me to believe this is derived from all natural flavors. I'm sure my wife will love this, I'd pick some up for her if no other beers of this ilk were on offer. my rating is much higher than the norm, but I call'em how I see them even if AB is trying to pull the wool over folks eyes. I've found more offenisive flavors in other AB beers un the mainstream, but it could just be me
