Aroma of apples, sweet cherry, honey. Flavour is quite sweet with some tart apples in the finish. I’m not much of a fan of this kind of drink, but I found this one okay.

At first I was sceptical for this low ABV in mead, but then.. Well its quite good. Decent honeyish background, pleasantly fruity, almost like cider – apples, cherries, some interesting spices. Quite light and refreshing. Mostly sweet. Decent, but nothing fancy

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
initial aromas and indeed my first taste were very positive. Rarely do I encounter apples, other fruit, and honey character so balanced and expressive. Cherries? heck yes. Apples? of course! Honey? Indeed! I even noticed the star thistle varietal.
However, the admonition to "drink cold, zombies hate the cold!" is very true. It took only a few degrees of warmth, and the loss of the initial spritz of carbonation, before this went cloying on the palate. Too sweet. By my second bottle I had started drinking it ice cold, poured a few ounces at a time into a chilled glass, with the remainder stoppered in the fridge. Kinda silly to have to go to that extent to be able to finish a bottle; would love to see this in an off-dry form.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cherry alike, sourish ... lemonade or cider! Weird, I’m more beer liker :)
Pours pale amber to orange with no top. Aroma - sweet-cider, cherries, and a bit like sour ales acid (moments glue), liked it a lot. Taste - sweet, a light sour and no hops - why is there no hops?!? Medium body, cider or compote texture. Interesting, but for that price I prefer Beer. Interesting cider like drink. From mead style I had tasted better.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught @ CBC2014. Pours crystal clear orange with a tiny bubbly head. Aroma is very sweet with honey, cherry, fruit, brett. Taste is moderate+ sweet and moderate tangy. Body is medium, texture is fat oily, carbonation is perfect - according to my notes. Finishes sweet and tangy with tart apple in the late finish. Not complex but achieves a great balance and drinkability. Quite nice.
