2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle @ Yngwieís, courtesy of Yngwie. Cherry red clear body. Nice enough. Nose is sweet honey and syrupy tones with hints of roses, cherries and red berries. Nice enough. Taste is almond-ish cherry tones, rosebuds, moss, hints of herbs and sugary marzipan. Cloying and a bit weird.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Labeled as Beaís sweet cherry honey mead lists an ABV of 10%: No cherry is detected on the nose, just honey, warm. Clear ruby red, still. Cherry and concord grape flavor with a tantalizing transition to honey. Medium body, good balance, alcohol tasteful. Well done. Donít let the cheesy US label fool you, this is delicious mead.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, shared by Papsoe. A ruby colored mead without head or carbonation. Cherries and honey in the aroma, both equally evident. The flavor is pretty much the same, honey and cherries blended quite well. Some alcohol. Full body, slightly warming. A decent one, but I donít care too much for blending cherries and mead. 100814
