Dark amber, some slight sediment. Sweet smell, quite some honey still, light tart berry. Real thick body, sticky, some light alcohol. Taste is heavy sweet at first, but a great tartness quickly lightens that. Super intense cranberry, some oaky tannins. The flavour intensity is magnificent, just a shame that it's still so very sweet. Maybe just a tad too intense for me.

Pours dark reddish purple. Smell is full, very intense, fruity, full on natural honey, syrupy. Taste is full, syrupy, sweet, very intense natural honey, very balanced, juicy, sugary but not too sweet due to the balance brought in by the fruit acidity. Extremely nice, which seems to be a given in pips.
