Zlotta (1800) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2016
Bottle at RBBWG 2016 in Antwerpen. Clear, deep red, no head. Sweetish, slightly fruity aroma of caramel, honey, red grapes and hints of vanilla. Sweet, slightly fruity taste of caramel, honey, red grapes and some vanilla, followed by a long, slightly sourish, warming and rather alcoholic finish. Medium to full body, oily mouthfeel. Very nice!

mcberko (13254) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 31, 2015
Bottle, pours a deep dark burgundy with no head. Nose brings out rich berries, red wine notes and a touch of wild qualities. Flavour is sweet, with rich sweet berries, red wine and lots of booze. Well-balanced and complex. Not having much experience with pyments, I’m not the best judge, but this is very enjoyable.

BenH (3438) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 20, 2015
Bottle thanks to team Garvie. Flat purple with no head, like Ribena. Strong berry aroma up front, red wine, the honey comes through when swirled. Tastes of a strong red wine, berries, some alcohol. Sweet and a little hot. Has more in common with red wine than mead imo and the berry flavour reminds me of some medicine I was given as a kid.
