3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
