A: Surprisingly looks like the Red & White version. I was expecting a different appearance. It is definitely a littler more dark, almost purple, but overall very similar.
S: Smells a lot like black raspberries. Very fruity aroma, but I'm missing the blueberries to be honest.
T: Very fruity, almost tart. However, the fruitiness does not appear immediately, only as an aftertaste.
MF: Heavy and carbonated, can taste the alcohol, making it more like a wine than a beer.
D: As was with the Red & White, the 10% ABV makes the drinkability low for me. Also, while I love black raspberries, the taste with the alcohol was a little overpowering.
Serving type: bottle

Served in a snifter at Beelow's.
Gotta love it when your local bars get some cool kegs. This case in point pours a partly hazy sunset rusted gold topped by a finger of glowing bone foam. The nose comprises blackberries, light blueberries, very light banana, mild biscuit, light sourdough, and a pinch of allspice. The taste brings in more of the same, the berries matched by some Belgian yeast-infused bread and a hint of orange peel and light grass. The body is a stolid medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a slightly syrupy feel. Overall, a pretty nice beer, one that I could see going well with plenty of foods (muffins and lamb dishes spring to mind).
Serving type: on-tap
