Bottle pours with a deep dark rosy body that has a small pink-ish head. The aroma is full of sweet berry fruit goodness that has some tart tannins and is smoothed out by sweet rich honey notes. The taste is similar with a pleasing fresh fruity load of berries that pick up a bit of an earthy berry skin note mixed with honey sweetened clove spiciness. To midway it develops some mild tannin tartness kept in check by the slick smooth honey sweetness. Dandy stuff.

500 ml bottle poured into a teku glass. Pours a ruby red with a pink head of thin foam that fizzles out quickly. The aroma has a lot of beery and spice character. Taste is fruity, berry sweetness with just a bit of spice coming through in the background. Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Really good mead.
