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.

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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
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. it’s like drinking a holiday red wine but @ a lower ABV.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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 isn’t bad, but it’s essentially a wine cooler.
