Scopey (9033) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2014
Keg at CBC Holborn. It pours deep purple with a fizzy light pink head. The nose is rather sweet, juicy dark berry, blackberry and fruit cordial. The taste is juicy, vimto, blackberry/currant, sweet apple, light spice, white sugar honey and citrus peel. Medium body and lively carbonation. Pretty sweet for a whole half, but it is pretty approachable. Decent.

teorn88 (3599) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2014
Keg at CBC Covent Garden. It pours a deep intense purple color with ruby edges and a minimal pinkish foam. Aroma is intensely sweet and fruity, big raspberry sorbet flavours. Aroma is again very sweet and fruity but more layered with intervention of the pepper and the honey. Still very sweet and fruity. Body is medium with lively carbonation. Overall quite good.

Draft. Purple color, like sparkling grape drank. Great fruity aroma, lots of berries and honey with a bit of spice. Sweet dark berry flavor, perfect amount of sugar. Zesty finish. Medium body with a smooth mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

Vells (1004) - Riga, LATVIA - JUL 25, 2014
Too much clove christmas character. Otherwise – quite pleasant honeyish with nice blackberries, spices. Sweet all the way with light sourness. Decent brew, but too spicy for me

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 (1473) - Atlanta, Georgia, 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 (2093) - 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 (4033) - 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.

jtw (1142) - farmington, Michigan, USA - JUL 12, 2014
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.
