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

Sample at First Sunday. Pours a clear, bubbly pink, with a medium, white head. The aroma is maraschino cherries, honey, and cloves. Light body, crisp, clean mouthfeel, with lots of carbonation. This is a very approachable and delicious mead.

A flowery deep cherry scent. Small carbonation and a decent tartness in the mouthfeel. A lot of apple skin and sour cherry flavor. Good stuff. I think the imperial version is much better.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Bottle (500ml)] Pours a clear bubbly goldish-pink with a spare white head. Aroma of apples first and foremost followed by honey, a hint of herbs and (possibly because I read there are some) some cherries. Flavour of apples, dry and tart, along with some light sugary sweetness -- the honey perhaps -- and some light cherries. Average bodied. Interesting and enjoyable.

Backlog bottle thanks to so many good ratebeerians. The smell is apple pie, very good, cherry fruit, and honey. The look is clear, no head, legs. The taste is sweet, great, fruits.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - Bull Run - 500 ml bottle. Sparkling medium golden pour with a slight pink hue to it. Aroma is pleasantly sweet with some light cherry accents, a touch of bubble gum, some honey accents. Flavor has a unique sweetness to it, hints of cherry juice, some honey sweetness, a bit of sourness in the back end. Mouthfeel has a nice smoothness to it. Wasn’t sure what to expect and wouldn’t normally pluck down $11 for a mead - but hit it big on a scratch-off I got at a Christmas Party - so what the heck!
