First two meads were gross.. Let’s try this one.
Tart wine aroma. Raspberry note.
Pours a rose color. Minimal bubbles.
Smooth on the taste. Tart. Cherry notes. Sweet. A little wet on the finish. The best mead I’ve ever had.
Sweet tart and wet on the plate.
Great mead! I will be checking out more for sure. Plus I can rep the old home state. :)

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!

Tap. Clear reddish orange, small head that quickly dissipates. Nose is cherries, apples, honey, tartness. Flavor is pretty close to what it smells like, fruit, cherries and honey dominate, a nice hit of tartness and spice in the finish.

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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Generously shared by one of the fine Portland RB folks at a tasting - Wow, this exceeded expectations. Pours light pink with no head. The aroma has soft flower petals, gentle apple, hints of cherries and gentle herbs. It has a medium velvety smooth body with no carbonation. IT begins with floral / petals, apples, cherries, jasmine, honey sweetness and a balance to everything. The finish adds a touch of spice and super-balance softness lingering. Excellent mead.
