1pint, 9.6oz brown bottle from Ron's in Farmington. Slightly murky yet translucent red-orange body with less than an inch of off-white head. Smells fruity, like berries, though not necessarily as raspberry-like as one might expect. Tastes berry-like with just a little alcohol warming on the finish. While it's medium bodied and definitely a sipper, it's not a syruppy or overwealming as I expected. Very drinkable considering the alcohol strength. Not bad. Not something I'd get all the time, but well-done.
