Each entry will be judged by a minimum of four judges. Points will be awarded for appearance, flavor, mouth feel and overall impression. Final scores are determined by averaging all judges scores.

In addition, each entry will be categorized by its structure and flavor profile. This allows brands to identify key marketing words and compare their scores against the industry as a whole.
