Pours a very nice red, decent legs with a swirl. Aroma is light cherry, floral, various berries. Taste is floral with light honey and raspberry more than cherry, a little tart and more dry than i like. Its a good mead, but I’m just not a huge fan of dry meads.

Crystal clear ruby red mead. Still. Fruity nose of cherry and cranberry. Taste of cherry jelly, berry sweet tarts and honey sweetness. Very pretty and very tastey.

Skyview (5109) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUN 7, 2012
On draught pour at the meadery bar in Columbus, Ohio. Pours a clear raspberry rosé juice mead with a clean disk top and thin foam bubbled on edge. Aroma of dry yeast, some rose pedal, black raspberry and a hint of honey. Taste is light bodied, definitely no raspberry extract but real raspberry fruit, mild tannins and light honey. Finish is semi-dry, light berry fruit aftertaste, the a crisp faint yeast flavor. Overall, a light dry mead with a hint of black raspberry flavor.

JaBier (4528) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAY 9, 2010
Sample at Brothers Drake. Clear deep red pour. Sweet honey nose that smells kind of like a fruit liquor as opposed to a mead. Watery and dry honey flavor that is very much like a light dry wine. Nose was kinda deceiving on this one.

Sampled at the Meadery. Nice rosey pour. Sweet peppery aroma. Flavor was a bit dry. Not a huge fan of the dryness, but went well with the dinner we had.

Thanks to sliffy for sharing a bottle. My first crack at a Mead. Pours reddish-amber with a thin bone white head. Spotty lacing on the glass. Raspberry and cherry aroma. Medium body with tart raspberry flavor, plus notes of malt and lavender. The finish is fruity with a lingering floral aftertaste. Tasty and interesting overall.
