3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thank you for sharing ElManana+1! 660 ml. bottle sampled @ RBBWG V. 2015 version. Pours a very deep raspberry pink, little pink head. Nose is huge raspberry jam, syrup, similar akin to cheap raspberry cookie filling. Taste is same cheap raspberry cookie filling & raspberry jam, very sweet,… Solid body. This is more akin to candy than actual fruit, I like it but it is also a bit too candy & artificial-like to fuly embrace & like but I did enjoy it.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
22oz bottle from Beer Gonzo. It pours a clean ruby color with minimal tan head. Aroma is sweet and syrupy with huge loads if raspberry marmalade. Hard to pick up anything else. Taste is all of the same, massive amounts o sugars and syrupy raspberries. Light booze. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, easily a drain pour, undrinkably sweet.
