3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

500ml bottle from Mikkeller webshop. Pours red in colour with a pink foam head and aroma of spice & sweet cherry.

Love the mix of honey and cherries - and should have known B Nektar would do something weird (like dry hopping a cherry honey brew). Flavor and color is great, tart sweet and hoppy. The nose was a bit weak but opened up with some work.

Sent to me by Strykzone. Thanks Dave. Poured kind of red. Pink tinges white. Nose is dark cherry and apple. Medium body. Cloying mouth feel. The flavor is somewhat sour fruit. Finishes with a lot of fruit.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap, poured into a stout snifter. The aroma is rich, sugary, dark cherries, baked apples, and a mellow grass undertone. The aroma is a clear, ruby red with a pink, soapy head that has mild retention and light lace. The taste is medium high sweet balanced by a light bitter and medium light sour (but not quite tart). The texture is oily with a light, fizzy carbonation and a medium body. The profile is like cherry soda 7-up with a finish of cherry pie filling and hints of light herbal grass. There’s a slight astringency and an aftertaste of light cherry pie filling that’s mildly cloying.

What came out of the bottle was a beautiful cranberry colored brew with nearly no head. Apple aroma of cherry and apple. Flavor of apple, cherry, and hop..

Bottle from trip to CLE. Looks like cranberry juice. Smells floral with a faint hint of point and lip stick. Tastes like tart cherry. Nice.
