4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
375ml bottle courtesy of Rayl101. Pours a rich ruby/red wine color. Sticks to the side of the glass. Aroma is tart raspberry with some earthiness, honey and alcohol. Taste is sweet and fruity/jammy. Coats the mouth and has a sticky texture as would be expected. Not overly sweet though given the earthiness of the fruit. Delicious.

3.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a pretty bright red. Smells like vitamins. Taste is a little vitaminy but mostly a bright, citrusy orange blossom honey and great raspberry expression. Good balance and lots of fruit used. Nice honey too.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pours blood red, no head. Great legs on the glass. Aroma is a mixture of raspberry jam and honey. Tastes amazing. Sweet honey and fresh pureed raspberries. Just a touch of booze in the finish is perfect to counter the sweetness. Great syrupy mouthfeel. This is supposed to be a sipper but I could easily just slam this stuff. I really wonder how this stuff would develop with a couple years in the cellar.

The aroma is raspberries and honey. Pours a clear dark red. The taste is sweet. The body is light, the texture thin, the carbonation soft and the finish long. Very good, just not as good as the others.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Okay, the aroma of this one is insane. INTENSE raspberry smell that makes you want to just keep sniffing it over and over again. Taste does not disappoint either. Fantastic raspberry flavor with a bit of alcohol taste and warmth, but this one hid the alcohol much better than Blackberry and The Statement did.
