Bottle shared with friends. Clear blush pour with no head. Aroma of cherry, apple and honey. Sweet cherry and tart apple flavor blended nicely with a carbonated finish. Not super complex, just nicely done.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
[Bottle, thanks Daknole!] Pours peach colored with no head. Aroma is not that impressive--weak, and just vaguely sweet. The taste is much better. White wine, cherry, almost a light spice character (cinnamon) at times. There is also honey, and honeycrisp apple. No sign of any alcohol. Good mouthfeel, smooth, fairly long finish. Light carbonation. I really have had a hard time rating this one. Very well done, and dangerously easy to drink. While it isn’t something I was amazed by, I definitely enjoyed it and could drink a lot of it. Thanks again, Daknole!

Bottle. Clear pinkish white grapeskin color. White grapes, Chardonnay, tart cherry skin, and slight honey sweetness. Light honey, some floral notes, slightly sweet but clean and vinous in the finish and very tasty. Medium to lighter body with very fine carbonation.

2012.04.02 - on tap at Always Ron's. After pour it looks very much like a raspberry ginger ale soda or similar. Taste is a bit tart at first but as your tongue adjusts it is fairly sweet with tart aftertaste. Pretty good.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a slight tinting of pink with just a touch of effervescence. The aroma is honey, clean and sweet, with supporting notes of apple and cherry. The flavor is initially cherry, which is followed by apple and then the honey rises at the finish. It is very interesting that all three components seem to climax at different times. This stuff is so easy to drink and is so enjoyable, I am kicking myself for not buying more when I was in MA.

I’m not usually a fan of meads, but this drink was outstanding. The body, even without a head, looked great - reminded me of a sunrise. Scents were just straight cherries and apples with a subtle honey twang. The taste was about the same, but so much of fresh cherries and honey with a damn near perfect tart finish. I could drink this all day! Thanks to OmegaX for this incredible elixir.

Bottle from Knightly Spirits. Pour was rose colored with some white bubbles from a vigorous pour. It reminded me of a sunset. The aromas here are straight forward but awesome. Sweet cherry and apple aromas. Tastes were an awesome combo of apple juice and cherry syrup. It was almost like drinking Juicy-Juice. Great stuff that is sooo drinkable. A crowd pleaser.

Draft at Fermentation Lounge. Pours a very clear rose color with a tiny white head. Aroma of sweet honey and jarred cherries. Sweet honey and red apple entry with a very light carbonation that livens it up a bunch finishing with nice amount of tart cherries. Good stuff.
