"A thoroughly enjoyable sweet-but-not-cloyingly-so raspberry honey braggot. The hibiscus added another unique dimension to the flavor and a pleasing perfumey aromatic to the nose. No hint of 10%, really."

On tap @ Brewbies 2014. Fizzy, pink soda pour with a small white ring of foam. Smells of cherry 7-up, metal, and butter. Quite floral, lots of sugar, and herbs. Flavor is very sweet. Lots of sugary soda type character. Cherry 7-up, mild berry, and butter. Floral, herbal, and metallic. Not enjoyable.

George’s Bachelor Party September 2013. Big flavor of raspberry seeds more than anything. Odd mead. Who knows how traditional this is. Not bad but nothing I’d order a glass of.

I dont think this mead was aged very long.... Didnt care to finish the free sample. I have not taken much interest in rating beers before but this was dissapionting enough to make me start. Not gluten free fyi and so not a true mead. Great staff at the restaurant.
