3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from the bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a clear, light peach-straw color with a pinkish hue, plenty of bubbles and a smallish foamy white head with short retention, but pretty good cling and lacing. Its aroma had a tart cherry scent along with yeast and wheat and notes of apple and citrus. The taste was quite sweet with a tart cherry and apple blend along with a cider effect, and a very light sour fruit effect. It was quite crisp and lively with a thinner, dry mouthfeel, good carbonation and a very refreshing character good for hot weather. Better than expected, thank you Siobhan for the Christmas present.

Had at the Meadery, the aroma is cherries. Pours a clear light red. The taste is sweet. The body is light, the texture thin, the carbonation average and the finish long. Very Good, could get in trouble with this! Was very careful when I had this.

Reddish/pink pour w/ no head. Aroma is apple, with a little cherry. Sweet aroma. Taste is apple and cherry. Honey brings these together to make a tasty combination. Little tartness. Goes down easy, too easy.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The appearance has a hazy pink color with a ton of bubbles clinging to the sides of the glass. Carbonation rapidly rises, and there isn’t any head.
The smell was a combination of sweet honey, tart cherries and apple cider (but really juicy).
The taste was super sweet (whoah, boy is this sweet or what). Apple cider/juice-like watery aftertaste with some wine-like qualities and there is a quick dry finish.
On the palate, its got a sharpness like wine and tries to pound my tongue into submission.
Overall, ok, this is only my second mead to review, but the more I get familiar with this, I’m just trying to figure out how this is even "beer." This would be better for wine lovers trying their hand out on the beer side. I, most likely won’t ever have this again.

Delicious beer. Almost cheating with all the fruit flavors they add; it's like you'd imagine the elixir of Olympus. Pink color, looks like a rose. Great substitute for wine on a warm day.

Slightly hazy light rose pour. Aromas of apples, cherries, and honey. Flavor is similar. This is delicious! The apples and cherries really add the perfect touch of complexity and tartness to this one. Awesome mead!

[Tap] Darker golden color with lively carbonation. Aroma is moreso of cherry than apple cider or honey. Smooth natural cherry flavors impart mainly sweet notes. Also a mild tart finish. Tasty. Tasting notes from 2/2014.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Has the appearance and mouthfeel of a dry rose champagne. Blend of apple, cherry, and honey. Flavor is slight tart dry rose wine like, but no real residual sugars. Slight cherry adds color but honey and apple dominate (but not overly sweet, maybe in the semi sweet wine category). Enjoyable, but I would not be able to drink much. Hard to put on the scale with beer ratings, but my rating is in the same scale as all my beer ratings.

Sweet and tart cherries, light honey and crisp apples. Perfect amount of sweetness. Just enough carbonation and incredibly refreshing.
