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.

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.

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.

Diogène (1066) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 13, 2009
D’un rose prononcé. Arôme très fruité de canneberges et de baies ainsi qu’une forte présence de rose et de miel. Acidité de canneberge prononcée qui vient masquer un peu la subtilité du miel et de la rose en bouche.

jimmack (1222) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - MAR 6, 2007
Bottle thanks to RLB. Clear, dark pink color with decent legs. Aroma is floral and sweet, with cranberry notes, honey and apple. I did not get any of the tartness in the flavor that others have mentioned. Sweet flavor of honey, grape jelly, cran-apple and rose hips.

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.

puzzl (3249) - 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.
