This is our citrus mead mixed with loads of blackberry purée. It is purple in color with intense fruit. Sweet and brambly.

Pour out of bottle at the brewery, dark purple pour with no head, still pour. Aroma brought notes of big tart berry, raspberry, some earthy notes with some blackberry, touch of spice into some honey, vanilla. Taste was not as blackberry forward as I would have liked, but nice honey, red cherry, berry into a hint of earth, slight vanilla, finishing sweet, slightly tart.

Pours a still plum color with a slight berry and honey nose. Berry flavor could have been bolder, but then the bottle is from this past summer. Very smooth, no booze, shared this with some non drinkers and they all loved loves. Made for the perfect after dinner treat.

Bottle @ RG 21. Looks like sherry. Smells like plastic and honey. Tastes kind of funky and sweet. Thick.

jackl (6112) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Bottle pour @ the 21st Richmond Gathering. Thanks to JohnnieNepal! Rose pour with hardly any head whatsoever. Nose of cranapple juice. Blueberry. Soft honeycomb and wax. Sort of light. Not as ballsy as most Kuhnhenn meads seem to be. Taste is pretty light, deft. A bit of spearmint. Hints of cranberry, apples. Wax. Very nice.
