tectactoe (3099) - Michigan, USA - NOV 3, 2013
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.

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)

SamP01 (620) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 13, 2015
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_ (3442) - 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...
