Oakes (13272) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 6, 2012
Light purple colour. Lots of fruit. The wine shows thorugh as well with slight meady accetns. Sweet front, then berries and finishing with some vinous notes. Not really my thing.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAR 11, 2012
Pour from 7venth sun. Dark, deep cranberry garnet color. Fruit wine yeast character on the surface. Dark berries, raspberry, black currant, and orange marmalade. Fairly thick, somewhat oily palate. A spritzer with soda water could work here, as long as it wasn't too diluted, or used as a mixer...the flavors are balanced. Its not dry, but is only medium sweet. Has a nice citrus kiss of acidity and grand marnier. More of a fruit wine than a mead in character. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
