Fruity fruity fruity! Not that you should have expected anything less from a beer proclaiming to be made from blackberries and blueberries. Pours an interesting redish amber with a clingy thin white head. Smell is a lot of fermented funk, sour citrus, mild malt, and hints of blueberry. Taste is yeast, but opposite of the smell, i get mostly blackberry on the palate. Mildly sweet, a touch of sour. Leaves you with some fresh fruit on the aftertaste. Feel is great: easy, almost TOO easy to drink. You would swear this is more like 4 or 5%, certainly not 10. Nice boozey warmth once it gets down in the gullet. The alcohol can sneak up because it's so easy to drink. I downed a bomber inside of 30 minutes and definitely felt it shortly after. Good beer, preferred Red & White (if they can really be compared).
