Nice dark amber with a head that falls to a thin ring.. prob not gonna have much lacing. the smell is a adjunct yeastyness and its not very appealing. Not really any malt or blackberrys. The taste is a faint raspberry and dark fruit.. maybe a slight caramel malt. Thin body.. this beer is not what it says on the label.. I don't want to bash blue moon becasue some beers are pretty good.. but this is really lacking flavor.

12 oz bottle served in a pint glass.

Pours clear dark amber with a hint of blackberry (purple). Decent head and lacing.

Fruity aroma clearly shows the blackberry addition.

Flavor follows with a nice addition of blackberries to the malts, but the aftertaste is not so good.

Medium-light body with medium-high carbonation.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Poured from 12oz bottle into 16oz mug.

Appearance: Dark amber in color with a smaller, fizzy off-white head that dissipates quickly and leaves behind little lace, but does yield a slick foam that remains on top of the beer.

Smell: Sweet bready malts with a touch of grain and, of course, tart blackberry.

Taste: Begins with tart blackberry flavor which rounds out to be sweeter through the drink. Toward the end bready malts come through with a finish that is faintly grainy. Good, but something is missing here...

Mouthfeel: Lighter body, crisp carbonation with a faintly dry finish.

Overall: Not a bad beer and a decent example of a fruit beer, especially for a macro brewer. Not something I would personally seek out, but a respectable offering.

Sampling right now on 1/20/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a brandy snifter.

Pours a pretty copper/amber with a red hue in color. Has a very small off-white head that settles down to just around the top. Lots of spotty lacing is seen when sipped that stayed. The aroma is of mixed berries with a hint of grains. The taste is of blackberry & raspberry with a tart finish. Not as sweet as you would think at all. The finish is followed up by a touch of grassy grains. Perfect balance of carbonation. Overall, this is a pretty good 'seasonal brew'.
