3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle... Clear orange mead. Medicinal aroma of camphor or menthol with a hint of cherry and a splash of vanilla. Moderately pungent and medium sweet; the flavor provides a lot of honey and tempered acidity, but not a lot of cherry. Medium to full-bodied with a 2%-milk mouthfeel and a rumor of carbonation. Tart, lightly sweet finish. I rather liked the stuff, but was expecting more of a cherry kick!

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle courtesy of BMan1113VR. Clear red pink appearance. Very little scent. A tiny amount of fruit. Taste is strangely buttery. Sweet flavors that turn unpleasant. Guess I didn’t think too much of this one, although I think I had a Bud Light Golden Wheat just prior to this, and it’s hard to compete with that.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Courtesy hopscotch. Clear reddish-pink color. Solid body with no head or lacing. Faint traces of syrupy legs as you swirl it in the glass. Artificial cherry smells comprise the base of the nose, with bubble gum and menthol as complimentary aromas. The flavor is like watered down sour cherry cough medicine sweetened with a bit of honey. There is a distinct sweet and sour element to this mead. Medium body that feels slick in the mouth. Not horrible, but there is a definite overall artificial feeling to it.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Beautiful blush color, with obviously no head. Floral aroma with cherries and honey. Flavor is sweet, but not syrupy. We sampled this at the meadery paired with some dark chocolate and WOW, what a combination. Delicious and highly recommended.
