Pours a dark clear ruby red, no head. Aroma of sweet honey, dark ripe cherry fill the senses. Taste same as aroma. Palate is a medium body, crisp and refreshing, not a cloying sweetness. Finish is sweet honey and ripe cherries lingering on the taste buds, has a pleasant aftertaste without being overly sweet. A good flavorful pleasant and refreshing mead.

_angst_ (3332) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 16, 2015
Bottle received in trade. Thanks Brandon! Pours sparkling deep red with a small fizzy pinkish white head that quickly dissipated without leaving any trace on the glass. Smell is fruity and slightly grassy with honey, grapefruit juice, sour cherries, unripe mango, freshly cut grass, pine needles, minerals, kumquats and lemon zest. Taste is tiny sweet, tiny bitter and slightly sour with honey, sour cherries, grapefruit juice, lime juice, pomegranate, red currants, freshly cut grass, pine needles, moist soil, kumquats and lemon zest. Mouthfeel is soft, very tiny sparkling, tart, slightly fruit skin astringent and medium bodied. Finish is tiny bitter and sour with honey, sour cherries, pomegranate, grapefruit juice, lime juice, freshly cut grass, pine needles, moist soil, kumquats and lemon zest. What a lovely tasty refreshingly tart session mead with an unique and amazing hop bite. Would have loved to have easy access to fresh bottles of this...
