4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a very dark ruby, almost coagulated blood in color. A small head on a vigorous pour quickly recedes. The nose is of blackberries and light spice (clove). The mouthfeel is light, as it should be, but manages to be smooth and almost slick. The flavor profile is outstanding - complex, but balanced, and bursting in flavor. It begins with a burst of sweet blackberry which rides over a honey sweetness. It then progresses to a bit of tartness over a mild clove. The finish is smooth, yet a bit dry, and leaves you with a lingering flavor that is all encompassing. Outstanding is the only way to describe this 6% sparkling mead.

another tasty and unique mead from B. Pirplish pour is good lookin. They manage to make things I didn’t think would work, work very well. The clove in this, the black pepper in mango. The clove makes the sweet honey and blackberry and orange really pop. It would border on too sweet without it but really comes together.

Pours a garnet from a bottle. Aroma of blackberry, some definite clove. Flavors similar, blackberry jam, clove, only a hint of orange, clove is somewhat strong, jarring, but not off-putting. A little over sweet. Good mead.
