3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A: Rich crimson body, thin offwhite head
S: Raspberries, sweet non-descript sugars, hint of booze
T: A nice semi-sweet, yet tart raspberry flavor dominates, not quite as sweet and fruity as a lambic, more rustic and earthy
M: The finish is a bit thin, but the front end of the sip has a nice smooth medium body feel
O: Like many meads, i just can’t finish this despite really enjoying the first half

On tap at the brewpub. Pink-golden with no head. Smelled mainly of fresh raspberries and the flavor was very similar. Very dry with little honey flavor beyond all of the fruit. I enjoyed my little flight glass of it but probably couldn’t drink a whole glass of it.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery. Has a funky not quite skunky raspberry pale fruity aroma. Tart with a little rot and some floral notes. Mild hop bitterness, too. Clear golden amber with light haze, topped with tiny bit of white head. Medium watery body with light carbonation and some vapory notes. Starts fruity with nice notes of raspberry juice and some sweet honey. This is tasty but I don’t know if I’ve ever had something like this. Bit of an alcohol kick with some estery fruity vapors. Overall, it’s a nice little quaff, and the alcohol could easily sneak up on you. Dry honey-wheat after, with no bitterness.
