Hot Lips’s Blackberry soda is a superbly executed super-premium CSD made with only four ingredients. What’s most unique about this flavor (and the rest of the Hot Lips line) is its use of local fruit (blackberries from Willamettte Valley, OR) as its primary source of flavor. The result is a very nice fruity flavor that tastes exactly like blackberries. It’s light, but sweet, with a touch of blackberry pulp floating throughout the mix. There’s also a touch of lemon to the finish, which helps cut the sweetness a bit. Packaging is honest looking and straightforward, with minimal text on the label and an uncomplicated list of ingredients. It has a funky, hipster sort of look to it, which is a nice change of pace from the countless carbonated soft drinks that are selling retro or old-fashioned themes. Whether you like the look or not, that makes for a memorable experience, especially with the superb execution of what’s inside the bottle. Overall, a superb product.
