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.

I really enjoyed this. Pours a dark crimson. Aromas of tart blackberry, cinnamon and clove, as well as citrus. All the ingredients sing in this. Really great sour, sweet, spiced flavours. I think this is great. Smooth and very easy to drink.

500ml bottle (Alus Celle, Riga)
Huge clove aroma from a distance, closer up there’s a tonne of honey. Dark, but flat. Flat and sweet in the mouth. Total freaking blackberry overload in the taste, but the clove is close behind. Almost numbing clove to be honest. Sweet and flat, and berry overload. Quirky, but I so much prefer the Polish/Lithunian/English meads.

Reddish color with a minimal and quickly diminishing head. Aroma has notes of cherries and slightly orange. Flavor is fruity with cherries and berries notes, vinous character with some smokyness. Slightly sweet final.

500ml bottle. Aroma of heavy spice in the dark red pour. Taste is a good mix of clove, orange, Berry, and honey. Reminds me of a mulled wine.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A dark red wine color, no head. Smells as you would expect, blackberry, orange zest, clove, honey, wax. Light sweet red wine tastes, blackberry, honey. Dry, finishes like a red wine. A decent light mead to have with dinner or after for dessert.

This poured a dark red to purple with a pinkish head. Aroma was of blackberries, light honey and some spice. Flavor similar, more blackberry forward, pushing on the lines of alcopop but refreshing.
