3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle… Clear copper mead with a rose tint and centipede-like legs. The aroma is pomegranate and sour cherries with a clover honey backbone. Full-bodied and oily. The flavor is fruity and just a smidgen more acidic than sweet. Finishes tangy, raspy and then a touch dry. Bottle courtesy of KickInChalice!

Thanks to Steve for this bottle. Pours a clear reddish-orange color with no carbonation. Aroma is quite fruity with a ton of cherry. I don’t get quite as much pomegranate, though. Smells a bit like red Kool-Aid. The flavor is full of sweet fruit, honey, and sugar. A light floral note and the same Kool-Aid character to it.

Nip bottle thanks to womencantsail. Clear pinkish orange. Flat, viscous. Nose is kool aid burst. Taste is not too sweet. Loads of pithy red cherries. Sweet, tangy, thick. Very nice. Thick legs on the side of the glass. Nice stuff. Fruit punch overall. Just no honey character.

Bottle thanks to Kyle. Pours a clear peachy gold with a small swhite head that dissipates completely. Aroma has a really nice note of sweet cheery with a slight tart pomegranate note. Flavor starts with honey, but mainly cherry and tart pomegranate.

Bottle shared by a friend. Clear reddish amber pour with no head and some nice legs. Aroma of cherry, apple, pomegranate, a sour fruit note and honey. Cherry and honey flavor up front with some tropical fruit character before a semi-sweet cherry finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle... really awesome color, a light blush wine, no head... the aroma is honey with light tart cherries and a bit of sour pomegranate... the taste is really balanced, more pomegranate than the cherries but evenly split with honey as well, sweet but over powering, juicy but I like it

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
6oz nip bottle picked up via trade... pours a somewhat muddled combination of copper and reddish tones, semi-transparent, still, but enticingly leggy... aroma of subtle apple and cherry pie to go alongside a sweetened honey base. the pom doesn’t jump out as being assertive and falls to the wayside underneath the cherry and honey components. fruity overall with enough honey for balance. reminds me of a fruit roll-up for some reason... flavors are more of the same with a somewhat syrupy feel to it. softer cherries and honey once again with a touch of heat and spice on the backend. medium bodied. ok.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a nice light red. Aromas of sweet cherries, and earthy skins. Flavor has wonderful pomegranate up front. Mildly tart. The sweet cherry juice cuts through with notes of rich sweet honey. Mildly earthy, and very good. Another winner from Kuhnhenn.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a light red with orange tinting. Smell is candied fruit, sour patch kids and zebra gum. Taste is medicinal with fake fruit notes that are over the top. Mildly sweet for the average mead.
