Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 8, 2007
Pours rosey and still. Smells peachy with some rosey hints, rubberbands and honey. Tastes of honey and reminds me of a bum wine. Where’s the cranberries this is supposed to have?

Rastacouere (6130) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 27, 2006
Still pinkish. Strongly floral nose is hugely sweet, well assertive on the honey and bringing the cranberries and their acidity aptly to create a rather original nose that is basically what you would expect from the name. Lasting sweet/tart finish full of floral aromatics, perfumey with cinnamon and vanilla extract undertones. Not necessarily complex, but the cranberry acidity is just admirably displayed for a drink that might have been a gimmick. Good going.

heemer77 (5101) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUN 5, 2006
Sampled at Mondial 2006. A medum red almost pink type coloring. The aroma was deifnitely roses with apples and the honey. There was some hint of tartness. The taste was very sweet with roses and cherries. There was some peach in the aftertaste.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 13, 2007
Thanks to RLB for sharing. Pours a violet/pink body, clear and still. Aroma is rose hip- sharp light acidic rose hip- vitamin C character, with a nice refreshing tart cranberry hint and mild honey sweetness- herbal and flowery hints are pretty strong. Sweet honey and spice flavor, peppery, flowery, tea-like, with a clean yet tart cranberry finish. A bit too herbal and flowery for me.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 19, 2006
Floral, perfume-like, almost nutty aroma. Clear ruby tinged body with excellent legs on the glass. Perfumey, lightly spicy, sweet and floral with light balancing tartness in the finish. Lasting fruity sensation in the aftertaste. Medium body is never cloying and alcohol is never notable. Sampled at Mondial 2006.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUN 10, 2006
Sample from the bottle (375 ml) at the Mondial de la Bière in Montreal, 2006. Supple legs slide gradually down the glass into the pale berry-pink, oily-thick translucent body....faint sour cranberries and white grapes are apparent in the strongly floral, sweet nectar hitting the nose....the flavor profile is very potent and forward, with very tart/sour fresh cranberry mashing hard on sweet clover honey, and alcoholic bitterness showing up late to muddle things a bit.....huge thick finish, massively tart and honey-vanilla simultaneously, very long aftertaste. A gem.

onceblind (4078) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 3, 2014
Clear rosey cranberry. The nose has an earthy red berry aroma and fresh flowers. Nice red grape and cranberry flavor with a boozy sweetness behind it. A bit one dimensional but tasty. Not tart, just a bit warm and average.

puzzl (3251) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 8, 2007
Bottle, about 8 months old. Very rosy, perfumy aroma, obviously. Slight acidity and old, spoiled honey that is somewhat characteristic of this meadery. Pretty red pour. Good honey up front unfortunately dies into a rough, formaldehyde finish. Yikes. Ruins an otherwise nice mead.

20070303 Bottled shared by RLB. More pink in color than you’d expect but they must have used a cranberry concentrate or something. Coats the glass, streaking. Aromas of mild cranberries, the fresh kind, and mild perfume notes. This was a step beyond the mild rosewater essense I expected, and maybe a bit much, but certainly unique.
