UPDATED: NOV 30, 2013 Bottle: crimson red color with deep ruby in the center, only a few small bubbles that disperse quickly after the pour. Aroma is full of some tart cherry juice, light honey sweetness, & another pronounced fruitiness that seems to be something of the "berry" type. Taste is similar, cherry juice hitting up front with very subtle tartness that fades into a honey glazed sweetness. I’m getting faint hints of cranberry as well. Very, very light grassy tone mid-palate from the hop addition. Sweet cherry, delicate finish. Another solid & very drinkable mead from B. Nektar.

Bottle shared by Radarsock. Thanks, Andrew! Pours black cherry red with a ring of white bubbles. Aroma is dark cherry, rose. Taste is slightly sweet dark cherry which opens up and gets raspberry, rose, floral. Not sure what effect the Goldings hop has.

Where and how: bottle 500 ml
Aroma frontal funk, dry notes, cherry fruits, lacking mead elements.
Appearance :
Top: lighter fizzy top tinted pink-red top.
Base: cherry-red, low viscosity shown on walls,.
Palate : medium bodied, fairly light carbonation.
Taste: frontal tartness, plenty of cherry fruit. Mid accented heavier with honey elements. Hops on top end as secondary play.
other notes nice but such blend seems not to be my thing

glennmastrange (2311) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Bottle. Heavy aroma of cherry with hints of vinegar and wood. Small fizzy pink head that quickly and completely diminishes. Color is clear burgandy. Flavor starts heavily acidic, then finishes moderately acidic and bitter, and sour. Palate is light, watery with alively carbonation and a tart finish. Not much noticeable honey in this Mead, but plenty of sour cherry.

Poured from a bottle. The non-mead-like appearance (dark red) gives some hint to the sharp cherry taste to come. Honestly the first mead I’d try again.
