Bottle at Redmond’s Thursday beers, no fears tasting - not bad. Sweet and syrupy fruits. Not much complexity, but nothing offensive. Blackberry and spice, smooth bodied.

A deep red pour. Looks like black cherry koolaid. A faint potpourri aroma. Blackberry definitely dominates the flavor. It has a slight almost peppery tingle that it leaves on the back of your tongue. I can’t pinpoint the flavor but overall nice mouthfeel.

This was a very pleasant surprise when I tried it for the first time Friday Jan 24, 14. It was amazing! So very impressed! And I do NOT like 95% of beers.

Poured a deep amber purple color with aromas of honey, berries and some clove. Flavors were sweet berries mellowed out by clove. Seeing clove 8 the ingredients scared me but the clove was quite mellow and just enough. Another solid mead by these guys.

16 ounce bottle purchased at Aggie Liquor. The aroma on this is pretty nice. Quite a bit of pleasant clove is present, along with some sort of berry-like aroma. Light acidity. Great freaking aroma. Transparent reddish-maroon body with a small, quickly dissipating fizzy light pink head. Starts with a light tart, fruity acidity, before some clove flavors and light spiciness comes through in the middle. Finishes spritzy and just a touch tart. Really effervescent. A really interesting and enjoyable beverage.

Bottle on new years eve. Pours very purple with nose of berries and cloves. Tastes of sweet blackberry, lots of cloves, some orange, some grape soda, and hint of tobacco. Touch sticky palate. Refreshing.

Bottle at Blippsmas! Pours a clear purple and garnet with a thin white head. Sweet berries on the nose, a bit of honey. Medium-bodied, sweet and tangy, a bit of tartness. Tangy, light berries. Very nice stuff.

BuckeyeBoy (2752) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 25, 2013
500ml bottle pours out a raspberry with a touch of bubbles on top. Nose is clove berries juice and spice. Taste is as the nose with lots of clove berries and a little sweetness.

Bottle. Pours.. uhh... purpleish? Light and refreshing, with some nice berry sweetness, spices, and a medium sweet honey finish. Not too sweet; very drinkable.
