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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
