4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle courtesy of "AKFaust". Past notes. Colour...much like a Provence rose but of course, effervescent. Nose...delightfully bright and spritely with masses of tart cherry, vanillin, clover honey and rose petal. Palate...crisp, bright and eminently appealing with tartly sweet cherry at the forefront and all around the palate. Apple and quince hit mid palate and essence of honey focuses itself towards the ever fresh and vibrant finish. Truly wonderful stuff that I wish we had in Oregon!

An extremely well-crafted mead that has a taste that alternates between the sweet and sour of the cherries, apples and honey. The layers were quite satisfying. Enjoyed on tap at Sugar Maple, MKE, WI.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is an odd brew. Poured clear light red almost pink without a single trace of head or lace. Taste is tart, cherry, apple, spice and sugar. Mostly tastes like a sweet cider. Alcohol is disguised very well. Flavor is sweet but it is balanced. Light body.
