3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at the White Hart Hotel, Andover. I see that there are lots of unfavourable reviews for this, but I quite liked it. It poured amber with a tight white head, with no visible sign of any fruit,; but the aroma was full of fresh blackberrries; the flavour was refreshing and very fruity with a good balance of sweet and sour against the grains; the fruit becomes sweeter and jammy towards the finish, leaving a lingering impression of scones, jam and vanilla cream. It may rot the teeth, but it left me with a smile on my face.

0.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Bottle. Fizzy golden, rapidly collapsing head that leaves behind nothing. Aroma is-- sweet Jesus-- the bastard love child of a bottle of cough syrup anda jar of berry jam. The flavour is so sweet as to pass for a flavoured alcopop cooler. An abomination. Couldn’t get beyond three sips.

1.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Visual: A beautiful label on their own branded bottle. Pours pale orange with almost no head nor retention, almost no activity either.
Nose: a very fruity fieldberry nose, a mixture of raspberry-blackberry-strawberry, though somewhat perfume-like. (7)-aromatic strength.
Attack: aspartame-like, medicinal
Mid-palate: fizzy texture, (3)-sweetness, (MAIN) club soda, elderflower, red bull, watered-down apple juice
Finish: rough on the palate, burpy, light apple-medicinal finish.
Summary: It drinks like an under-sweetened energy drink. The body is flat, flavour is awful, and nothing like any bramble berries I’ve ever tasted. NOT recommended. (Note: numbers above are on a 10-point weak-strong scale)

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a golden yellow with a small white top. Aroma is extremely fruity, lots of berries. Taste is sickly sweet with fruity berries and syrupy sugar.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled 21/09/13. A golden coloured beer with no head. Yes, forest fruits for sure but also a lot of sweet toffee notes which don’t gel all that well. I feared this would be bad and indeed it is in the mouth although the aroma ain’t too bad. It’s downhill all the way from there though. There’s some toothpaste shockingly.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
boring fruit brew. The pour a slightly ruby red highlight amber with a thin soapy head. The nose is overly sweetened with a bunch of ripe berry fruit scents but nothing else. Too sweet and lacking depth and flavour overall. A good hot summer day brew!

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A little bit of a disappointment as one expected possibly too much. Interesting aroma when opened that did not fully translate to the taste. One of those things to taste to say one has done it but not likely to be a regular partner. A bit falsely sweet rather than a real taste combination.

Wow I got this one as a gift for driving some buddies to the liquor store one night, wish I would have told them to screw off. Aroma of cotton candy, strawberry jolly ranchers, just very fake, sweet candy like aromas. At least the aroma is manageable cause the taste is the aroma bit even sweeter, I’ve when you put five scoops of ice tea mix into a glass of water but then no one is looking and you out another 3 or 4 in, wow this is disgustingly syrupy like sweet, what are they thinking with this one.

500ml brown bottle. Yellow pour with a good sized withe head, ok lacing. Nose is sweet, definitely mixed berries, kool aid. Taste has weak beer in the background and a mix of sweet kool aid-ish fruits and berries. Standard body and carbonation. Overall, too sweet, half a bottle of this and I’m done.
