CloakedDagger (995) - - NOV 8, 2014
Bottle 75 cl. Pours a reddish brown with a smallish, pinkish head. Very intense raspberry aroma - wauw. Very rich body, lowish carbonation, intense raspberries - and nothing much else to be honest. They must’ve used a ton of raspberries here! Sweet, rich berry finish with the alcohol very well masked. Nice one. 081114
