3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a coppery amber with a momentary white head. Slightly chemically apple and cherry on the aroma. Flavor starts with a sweet mix of cherry, honey, and apple juice with some barely detectable herbal hints. A decent sweet mead.

Bottle to snifter. Looks solid; a still reddish-orange. Smells of honey and cherries. Tastes like it smells with a nice, zippy finish. Enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Reddish amber color with only faint pinkish bubbles. Bright, tart cherry nose with strong honey sweetness. Honey sweetness with great tart cherry, current and raspberry flavors. Some cinnamon and red hot spiciness. Very full flavored mead, much fuller than the 6% would predict.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear, bubbly blush color. Perfumey nose of sweet honey and tart cherries with an earthy herbal kick. Taste is balanced sweet and tart. Palate is effervescent, dry, crisp, slick, with a tart linger. Pretty nice stuff, an easy drinker, very clean but with enough character.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared by a friend. Clear blush pour with no head and mild legs. Aroma of honey, corn and cherry. Carbonated (like pop) flavor starts with cherry and apple and moves to a bit of sweet honey before a tart cherry finish.

hmm maybe wasn’t in the mood for this one. tastes like a cherry wine cooler with cherry candy flavor. pour some out for 2 others and it was passed over for other things.
