Clean and refreshing, light cherry flavor. Great clear appearance, reddish tint. I enjoyed it on draft more than the bottle.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a faint pinkish color with almost no head. It is translucent and reminds me of grapefruit juice from the carton.
It has a very pleasant sour cherry and apple aroma that reminds me of a nice, fresh apple cider or juice. Iím no mead expert, but this is smells really nice and crisp, and Iím drawn to it almost immediatley.
The taste is a really nice, tart cherry flavor with notes of honey, clover, and apple present. Unlike many meads and ciders, this is by no means overly sweet, but it has just enough sweetness. Itís really balanced and pleasant, with the right mix of tart and sweet.
could drink this by the gallon. The drinkability is off the charts.

On tap at Dan's. Man this is great! The are looks like apple juice. The aroma is sweet, with a little cherry on top of what smells like apple peel and almost a bottle of Juicy Juice. The flavor is incredible. I wish there was a more cherry and tartness to it, but it's really, really good. Not too familiar on how the mouth feel is supposed to be with meads, but this is incredible and the aftertaste is brilliant!

Pretty good mead. Would like it to be a little more tart, but all around a good bottle.
