look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

bottle.

Appearance: Dark reddish golden.

Smell: Bright and fruity.

Taste: Sweet. It tastes like raspberries (and not "raspberry flavor," real raspberries). Not quite cloying, but definitely sweet.

Mouthfeel: Syrupy and heavy. Little carbonation.

Overall: Not exactly my test, but I can see why people like it.
