Golden blush color out of the bottle and mostly still. Big honey nose with some musty fruit and a lot more alcohol than the 6% would indicate. Great honey sweetness with strong apple flavor and a puckering cherry tartness. Very nice mead.

T: Sweet, then sour like a Honeycrisp Apple.
M: Sticky and medium-heavy.

Aroma is an odd mix of bitter beer and apple juice. Not a bad smell, but just a little weird for a mead. Taste is heavy on the sparkling apple juice. Similar in mouthfeel and taste to a Martinelli’s Sparkling Cider. You can easily chug this mead due to the pleasant sparkling texture and the low ABV. Notes of cherry and honey, although the honey is barely there. Heavy tart apple taste at the end which was a bit weird and kind of like the smell, but it goes away quickly. Didn’t care for that part of it, but overall it’s great and very drinkable going down.

500 ml bottle from Mikkeller & Friends. Hazy orange red and golden. No head. Delicious aroma of apples, honey and cherries. Soft and very fruity. Fairly low carbonation level, but very refreshing. Nice acidity level. Lovely fruity flavours. Really well balanced and very drinkable. Love it.

Tap at a recent RB tasting... Poured pale, straw/pinkish with a thin head. This was nice stuff. Dry, mildly tart apple juice tones with honey sweetness. Easy drinking and refreshing. Could crush a ton of this on a hot day.
