3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500, capped. Pours a rosy burnished dark gold with no real head or lace. Sweet bright acidic, slightly tart cherry nose, blended perfectly with the honey. Both very pronounced, very forward flavors, but working together very harmoniously. Creamy medium body with a bit of carb. Cherry and honey perfectly integrated on the mid palate, perfectly proportional to one another and very balanced and delightful. Mild sweet cherry finish.

From bottle. Clear pink pour. Apple honey flower cherry aroma. Taste floral honey apple cherry and a bit boozy. Very drinkable and complex sweet but finishes dry. More cider than mead but very good. Thin body.

These beautiful labels randomly popped up at the Co-Op the other day, and even though it was $10 (!!!) I’m a sucker to try out new goods, and went for it. Medium-thick mead here, big cherry nose. Tart cherry blended with sweetness of the honey, with an apple note on the tongue towards the finish. Good, but wouldn’t buy again - too pricey for a small bottle like that!
