Bottle courtesy of goryskewych. Cheers, George! Pours a red-Amber with no head. Nose is berry, grass, light honey, and mild berry flesh. Flavor is similar- berry and berry flesh, mild bitterness, grass, and some earth. Light in body for a mead and very nice overall.

Sampled at the meadery this mead poured a reddish color with a small creamy pink-white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was cinnamon sugar with hints of berry jam and nutmeg. The flavor was tart berry, cinnamon, faint fruity hops and moderate astringency. Very long finish with lingering cinnamon. Moderately full bodied. Interesting.

Bottle thanks to peter. Nose is moderately fruity but lacks honey expression. Some grassy notes. Taste is very fruit forward with lemon forward notes too. Citrus notes are very prominent even over the blackberry. Really good but the blackberry seems to be a secondary thought.

Complaining that mead is still, now that’s funny. This is pretty nice stuff.
Lightly pink rosé tone, bright clarity. Aroma is pretty light and mild, vague honey and berry. Taste is the highlight, tart blackberry, mildly fruity, mildly sweet. Finished with little residual sweetness. Crisp and clean, wish there was some Cascade aroma but overall it tastes great.

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent light cherry with white lacing and no visible carbonation. Smells of honey and mild blackberry. The first whiff was body odor, but maybe it was a passer by? It got better, but never to the point of good. Tastes like it smells with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. Not bad, but soft and underwhelming.

500 ml bottle poured into a brandy snifter. The mead is a clear red color with no sign of carbonation. There was just a slight hiss when I popped the cap. The aroma has perfumy berries and unripe blackberry notes. When i say unripe, i mean mostly green still. Not even sour. A little bit peppery. Lighter and airy in body. It’s a still mead, so no fizz on the tongue. Just slick across the tongue.

Bottle. Pours orange. Honey sweetness, some berry juiciness, very faint acidity, and a honey sweet finish. Not bad.
