Pour out of 500 mL bottle, clear red pour with thin white head, aroma has notes of cherry, slight earth, slight apple, peach, hints of funk, slight grass, hints of honey as well. Taste is a mix of sweet cherry, mix of earth, peach, hints of grape, slight honey, finishing fairly sweet, but slightly tart and dry. Pretty tasty, but not all that complex.

Bottle. My very first mead. Pours clear pinkish yellow with no head. Aroma is white wine, cherry, apple, honey. Flavor is about the same, quite sweet with very nice apple and cherry notes and a sweet honey finish. I like this.

6% abv. Drsiliverworm supplied -- many thanks! As many have mentioned, pours a beauteous coral light red with short-sustained head. Smells quite astonishing: acidity, yeast cake, sour cherries, cough syrup, cranberry concentrate and Pinot grapes. Words cannot describe how good this is... itís delicately acidic, tart, and earthy with just the tiniest hints of spice and oak. Refreshing doesnít even cover it; this should be everyday drinking.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. pours a nice pinkish red with no head, sparkling bubbles throughout though. Aroma has a fresh apple and cherry juice. Flavors defines refreshing, snappy apples, juicy tart cherries, on a blanket of honey wine, finishes very dry, crisp, and well refreshing. Itís hard to imagine there could be a human living who wouldnít find this enjoyable. Itís not the most complex drink youíll ever have but sometimes you donít need complex. My only issue with it is that itís $8/bottle. I know thatís not crazy expensive but itís so light and easy to drink that since I pretty much want to session this daily Iíll probably just avoid it more than Iíd like.

Draft! Yes indeed. Courtesy of Darrell, thank you sir! Color of rose wine. Aroma of dried apple skins and cranberries. Taste starts sweet, like grandmaís apple pie, but it has a crisp edge. Iím not a mead fan, but this is one of the best Iíve had.
