Dark ruby pour with a 1 finger, creamy light purple head. Aroma is big on blackberry, delicate floral notes, clove spice and some perfumey floral notes. Flavor is blackberry and clove up front, then orange peel, perfumey floral notes and some light honey notes. Medium body, juicy entry, light acidity, light blanketing carbonation. The whole thing is a bit like potpourri, but in a very tasty, very enjoyable way.

olsvammel (4942) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 8, 2016
Bottle from Systembolaget (privatimport). Fruity smell with berries and what I thought was cherries. Sweet flowery taste with honey and berries. I now realized it was blackberries I felt. The sweetness felt slightly artificial. Still nice though, I liked it.

Pours reddish with no head. The aroma has raspberries, sweetness, honey and is very rich and smooth. It has a medium / full rich slick body with no carbonation. The flavor starts with sweet berries, honey sweetness, cinnamon, clove and has a pleasing kick on the finish. Solid mead.

slowrunner77 (8356) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 19, 2015
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.

Quick3Beers (628) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 2, 2015
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.
