500ml bottle from Bev4less. Pours a cloudy purple color with no head. The aroma is dominated by the cloves with blackberries in the background. The taste, like the aroma, is focused on the cloves but the blackberries play a prominent role and act as the foundation like a good malt base would. The palate is full and smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes long and semi-sweet with lingering berries. Overall: Very tasty stuff.

(bottle - 500 ml) Ruby red pour with very little head. Very light blackberry and clove aroma. Big blackberry flavor at the start with a subtle clove backbone and a lightly sweet but yet tart and dry blackberry finish. Really smooth.

AdamChandler (4829) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle from a trade. Pours a very faint purple with reddish hues. 1 finger head. faded fast. Nose has a ton of clove and pumkin spice. really earthy with vanilla, graham cracker and sugar.Very light Pinot Noir with a load of clove, nutmeg graham cracker. The likeliness to a nice california red wine is pretty amazing. its like drinking a holiday red wine but @ a lower ABV.

WillRunForBeer (2539) - Massachusetts, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle shared by Radarsock. Thanks, Andrew. Pours light burgandy with a couple white bubbles. Aroma is sour blackberry, orange blossom honey, slight floral. Taste is like watered down blackberry juice with a bit of honey and a touch of black tea bitterness. Alcohol is not detectable. This isnt bad, but its essentially a wine cooler.

Bottle. Pours a clear blackberry like color with no head whatsoever. Aroma has lots of clove with a touch of dry honey and a bit of blackberry underlying. Flavor has more of a slightly tart blackberry and dry honey with strong clove note that slightly overpowers.

Scopey (13745) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2014
Keg at CBC Holborn. It pours deep purple with a fizzy light pink head. The nose is rather sweet, juicy dark berry, blackberry and fruit cordial. The taste is juicy, vimto, blackberry/currant, sweet apple, light spice, white sugar honey and citrus peel. Medium body and lively carbonation. Pretty sweet for a whole half, but it is pretty approachable. Decent.
