3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Faint clear pink, delightful aroma of light honey covered blueberries, pretty sweet aroma, but not as strong on the blueberry as I expected. Refreshing palate, with a sweet taste--light sweet blueberry juice, dry honey tones...not at all syrupy, but it ends up being too slick. I wanted more body from it.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
No head (still). Body is clear medium pink-amber. Aroma is notes of random berries (blue/black/rasp), honey, and alcohol. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic. Medium to full body, syrupy texture, flat carbonation, moderately alcoholic. Fair enough, but nothing special. I’m just glad the fruit doesn’t completely clobber the honey.
