Bottle in Florida. Pours transparent purple. Little carbonation. BlackBerry aroma. Tart blackberry flavor. Improved with each sip. Overly fruity- not really a beer but tasty.

Incredible flavor. I can taste the clove and it is not over powering, but blends with the orange zest into an incredible flavor that is out of this world.

Skinnyviking (7180) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2014
Draught at Taphouse. No head. Clear dark red body. Sweet cinnamon clove blackberry aroma. Flavor of blackberries honey cinnamon and clow. Little hops (not surprising), low carbonation and a long sweet finish. Alcohol level seemed just right. Nice surprise.

StefanSD (2183) - Lakeside, California, USA - SEP 23, 2014
500ml bottle from Bev4less. Pours a cloudy purple color with no head. The aroma is dominated by the cloves with blackberries in the background. The taste, like the aroma, is focused on the cloves but the blackberries play a prominent role and act as the foundation like a good malt base would. The palate is full and smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes long and semi-sweet with lingering berries. Overall: Very tasty stuff.

zach8270 (3520) - Henrietta, New York, USA - SEP 18, 2014
(bottle - 500 ml) Ruby red pour with very little head. Very light blackberry and clove aroma. Big blackberry flavor at the start with a subtle clove backbone and a lightly sweet but yet tart and dry blackberry finish. Really smooth.

AdamJackson (2802) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle from a trade. Pours a very faint purple with reddish hues. 1 finger head. faded fast. Nose has a ton of clove and pumkin spice. really earthy with vanilla, graham cracker and sugar.Very light Pinot Noir with a load of clove, nutmeg graham cracker. The likeliness to a nice california red wine is pretty amazing. itís like drinking a holiday red wine but @ a lower ABV.

WillRunForBeer (802) - Massachusetts, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle shared by Radarsock. Thanks, Andrew. Pours light burgandy with a couple white bubbles. Aroma is sour blackberry, orange blossom honey, slight floral. Taste is like watered down blackberry juice with a bit of honey and a touch of black tea bitterness. Alcohol is not detectable. This isnít bad, but itís essentially a wine cooler.

From a bottle. Lovely deep red color with a rather weak head. Sour mixed berry aroma with a touch of clove. Flavor: mildly tart with a strong underlying sweetness. O: interesting and very fruity.

deyholla (6863) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear blackberry like color with no head whatsoever. Aroma has lots of clove with a touch of dry honey and a bit of blackberry underlying. Flavor has more of a slightly tart blackberry and dry honey with strong clove note that slightly overpowers.
