look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Aroma: Blueberry and some blackberry. Slightly more bitter than sweet. Can smell from 18"-24" away.

Appearance: Very dark red. Looks very clear when held up to a very bright light.Head is pale red and is of moderate height. Decent retention and lots of lacing.

Taste: Sweet blueberry and grape, mildly bitter blackberry. Some light malts. A bit medicinal (their Red was better), but is good nonetheless.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body. Mild to moderate carbonation. Thin and oily.

Overall: Good, but not as good as their raspberry. A bit of cough medicine flavor.

Note: I did not know this was brewed by the almighty Anheuser-Busch at the time of the review.

Serving type: bottle

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

Appearance is grape in color, and the smell is very, very berry. Nice on the nose. The taste, well this is not beer. More on the line of a ripple. Really this has a cooler taste. Mouthfeel is nice it doesn't linger and it is not nasty on the mouth. Overall if it is berry with the beer you want you got it. Nice if you are in the mood. Great blending beer. Oh pass the cheese cake.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A - dark purple with a thin, fizzy layer of purple head that fades quickly

S - blackberries

T - sweet, tart blackberries

M - medium bodied, crisp

This is definitely more juice than beer. For those who like blackberries this might be a good offering, but for a fan of beer this is a miss.
