Ruby pour, no head. Aromas of blackberries, honey, cloves, and orange zest. Just like it reads. This smells like christmas. Wow the aroma is incredible. Flavor is sweet blackberries with spice. Wonderful balance of flavors. Very tasty.

GTAEgeek (1929) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Sample from a bottle brought by West to Ale Alpharetta. Pours dark red, with no head. The nose is immediately blackberries, with a strong and unmistakable note of cloves, and a hint of orange peels in the finish. Very sweet, with a low, pleasant savory spiciness. Medium body, crisp, clean, and acidic. This is a wonderfully forward and flavorful flavored mead.

Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 18, 2014
July Ale Alpharetta. Light, not overly sweet, vibrant mead with nice light carbonation. Big blackberry and clove notes dominated with a hint of citrus. Overall quite nice, and B Nektar continues to impress.

Cybercat (5123) - Georgia, USA - JUL 17, 2014
Pours a clear dark ruby, not like he typical mead. Aroma has strong blackberry and honey notes. Raspberry dominates the flavor, somewhat sour. Texture is quite thick and fairly fizzy for a mead. Sink your fangs into one.

clearer and purpler than blood, but definitely an evocative appearance with a pinkish dense pillow of foam atop. spicy and peppery aroma of clove and fruit. fresh berry with little alcohol nose, quite intriguing. spritzy level of carbonation and more pepper and clove on the tongue than in the nose. blackberry and orange are noticeable but not dominant despite the huge color contribution from the blackberries. very nice, a successful effort from B Nektar.

Ktwse (4052) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2014
Pours clear red with low pinkish head. Aroma of sweet cherry, almond icing, marzipan. Taste is very sweet, almost sticky sweet, but pleasantly so. Very drinkable. Light, smooth body.

flemdawg (559) - Rowlett, Texas, USA - JUL 2, 2014
Clear dark purple body with a very thin head of tiny redish purple bubbles. Strong clove aroma along with berries plus honey. Blackberry flavors along with the honey and a decent dose of cloves. Bubbly on the tongue with a slightly dry finish.

bursprak (2500) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 27, 2014
500 ml bottle split three ways. Pour is clear purple with no head or lacings. Nose is sweet with red berries. Taste has red berries, sweetness, some apple juice, honey and a tad to much clove. My least favourite of the B.Nektar "session meads" to date.

StoutHead (945) - DENMARK - JUN 23, 2014
Tap. Pours a clear amber colour with a white head. Sweet malty and sugary aroma. Taste is of fruits and berries, bread, honey and spices. Medium body and medium carbonation. Sweet with a dry finish. Too sweet for me.

_angst_ (4507) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 20, 2014
Bottle bought @ biere-revolution.com. Pours tiny sparkling purple with a small reddish bluish beige head that quickly dissipates without leaving any trace on the glass. Smell is sweet, fruity and tiny spicy with honey, dry soil, blackberry hard candy, cloves, hay and hints of kumquats. Taste is tiny sweet, slightly sour, fruity and slightly spicy with honey, blackberries puree, hay, cloves, nutmeg, orange zest, kumquats and hints of bilberries. Mouthfeel is round, slightly tart, slightly dry and light to medium bodied. Finish is tiny sweet, slightly sour, fruity and tiny spicy with honey, blackberry puree, hay, cloves, orange zest, bilberry jam and blackberry hard candy. Tasty and quite original...
