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

Appearance - Pours a dark purple color with a thin, light-purple head that dissipates instantly. Has thin lacing.

Smell - Artificial blueberry flavoring.. and nothing else.

Taste - It tasted like a mix between grape soda and a wine cooler. They definitely hide the ABV well, but it has a small alcohol bite in the aftertaste, but not bad. It's very fruity but not overwhelming.

Mouthfeel - Has a pretty thick body with a lot of carbonation. Kind of syrupy.

Overall - After a little while of drinking on it, it's starting to make me feel sick. Only drink this if you're into strong, fruity drinks.

A: What...is...this? Dark purple color with a thin but really creamy light purple head. This looks scary as hell.

S: Oh no. Blueberry bubblegum/cotton candy, grape cough syrup, juice box, and an overwhelming amount of sweetness.

T: This is so gross. Super syrupy mouthfeel with huge grape cough syrup and artificial blueberry notes. The finish brings hints of grain, stale bread and already been chewed blueberry scones. Leaves a nasty sour taste in the mouth after swallowed. This is easily the worst I've ever had.
