UPDATED: NOV 5, 2014 Tap @ Bluegrass: Murky pink body with hints of rusty copper. A lightly foamy & gray-tinted head fizzes out on top pretty quickly. Smells like herbal raspberry tea; sweet raspberry candy notes with undertones of herbaceous leafiness & mild grass. Taste is the same way, like a semi carbonated raspberry tea drink. Sweet raspberry juice, tea leaves, grass, & some finishing notes of residual sugar. Carbonation is a little prickly & weird. Tasty, but kind of spritzy & thin overall.

Draft at third street location. Now is honey and raspberry. Sweet as expected. Honey flavor is really convincing.

2/28/14. On tap at the brewpub. Served as "Raspberry Meade." Pinkish pour, no head, okay legs. Sweet raspberry and honey aroma, a touch of an herbal aspect, meh. Sweet raspberry flavor, honey, herbal, black tea in the flavor. Meh.

5/15/2011: BBC Luna de Miel: Raspberry Meade... Aroma: Smells like an CHERRY Dum Dum sucker; artificial. Appearance: Watermelon color; bright and clear complexion. Flavor: Nice level of honey sweetness with a punch of sharp alcohol; powery raspberry flavor. Palate: Light with delicate carbonation; it’s a bit too thin for my preference. Overall: Not great; the small taster sample was more than enought to determine that I didn’t want anymore... ever!
Draught (sample) at BBC brewpub in Louisville, KY. Rating #50 for this beer.

This is a Meade? Seriously? Doesn’t taste like it as all. Of only this thing tasted as smooth it tastes. Still quite nice, but not sure this should be a considered a meade
