bubbleflubber (1828) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - FEB 16, 2014
An incredible fruit beer/mead here! Pours just like blackberry juice, with a hint of raspberry fringes.... beautiful, with a reduced head that leaves no lacing. The nose is of pure blackberries and honey, with a light hint of cloves. Flavors back this up substantially, with a large wallop of blackberries, some light honey sweetness, and a dark fruit that closes with a numbing hint of clove. A juicy mouthfeel combines with an emulsified honey-textured palate. The slightest hint of subtle carbonation combines to provide the perfect body for an aperitif or dessert offering. A truly gorgeous fruity mead here. Again, just GORGEOUS!

jredmond (5334) - Manhattan, New York, USA - FEB 4, 2014
Bottle shared with Zdk, Paul, Andy, Pearl, Max and Clocks. Pours a light body, no head. Aroma is fruits, juice, spice and honey. Mouthfeel is medium to thin with similar flavors coming through. Not bad, but a bit bland compared to some of the other B.Nektar offerings.

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.
