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. Iím 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.

500ml bottle - $8.99 at Hop City in Atlanta, Georgia. Appearance: Pours out a clear, purple-red body with a very brief fizzly white head. Smell: Bright, charming cherry nose, yielding a tart fruitiness over the subtle honey and minor hop hints. Taste: Sweet, tart cherries, a splash of a light red wine, scant herbal, floral kick and bitterness with a touch of pomegranate. Mouthfeel: Light-bodied, still. Overall: Great albeit one-dimensional flavor, very refreshing and enjoyable.

portableparty (2096) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - AUG 14, 2015
500ml bottle. Pours a ruby red color with leaving a thin soapy rose collar. Aroma hops pop right out with sweet honey and mild tart cherries. Taste is sweet honey tart cherries and funky bitter hops trying to fight through. Palate is slick and coating. Very interesting smelling the hops, but tasting the cherries over rule in the taste. I really like this a lot!

Klimaet (747) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2015
Tap @ Mikkeller and Friends. Pours deep dark ruby red. Aromas of cherry soap, sweet honey, some light floral notes, light cherry tartness. Taste is slightly hoppy but mostly sour cherries, honey, soap. Soapiness is pretty offputting, sadly.

Bottle. No detailed notes - nicely tart, not overly sweet, dry finish. Worth a try if you donít like super-sweet meads.

odinstyr (610) - Howell, New Jersey, USA - JUN 12, 2015
Pours a clear magenta-red with a very short lived fizzy pink head. Smells of cherry, honey, and floral hops. Taste is sweet, moderately sour and mildly bitter - cherry followed by honey, light hoppy finish.

UPDATED: JUN 11, 2015 2nd best of the B Nektars I?ve had (to kill all the golfers). Hops are not as prevalent as I?d hoped, but it does cut the sweetness enough to make this more palatable than the really sweet leads (zombie killer, black fang, zombies take Manhattan)

The aroma is sweet with fruit and honey. The appearance is pink with a fizzy head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall good.
