Drake (8981) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Bottle shared by jackl at the 21st Richmond Gathering, 11/1/14. Pours a clear pinkish color with weak legs. Aroma of bright strawberry, rhubarb, honey, citrus, mild earth and mint. The taste is tart strawberry, honey, vanilla, earth, cherries. Medium bodied, still, this bottle says 13% but I’m not buying it. Smooth. Nice.

jackl (4920) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Bottle pour @ the 21st Richmond Gathering. Thanks to Johnnie Nepal! Deep pink with no head whatsoever. Nose of beautifully vibrant strawberry. Bazooka Joe gum. Fruit gushers. A hint of dirt. Wonderfully inviting. The taste is pretty exquisite. Huge strawberry sweetness. Earthy rhubarb. Sweet honey. Wonderfully integrated, harmonious. Not hot or difficult at all. So smooth. Wow.

MeadMe (1331) - Riverview, Florida, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Pours pale pink. Aroma is sweet strawberry candy, very inviting. Flavor is loaded with strawberry, wonderfully sweet and tasty....almost candy like. Mild tartness from the Berry and rhubarb, but not real rhubarb flavor. Thinner in body,but damn tasty. A real treat, seek it out.
Earlier Rating: 9/1/2012 Total Score: 3.9
Pours pale yellow. Aromas of strawberry and waxy honey. Flavor is slightly underripe berry not really sour yet not sweet. Light waxy comb and flowers. Pleasant to drink.

tectactoe (2290) - Michigan, USA - AUG 26, 2014
Bottle @ Kuhnhenn: Clear-ish, pink-tinted color. Lots of clarity, a few carbonation bubbles. Very pale. Aroma of sweet, sugary, mixed berry soda. Mostly sugary strawberry candy with a light acidity from the rhubarb. Somewhat thin berry flavor. Again, mostly sweet strawberry with the tartness & acidity from the rhubarb being secondary. Soda-like in flavor, just with a much flatter mouth feel, obviously. Kind of thin. Decent mead, the 12% ABV is hidden miraculously. Actually tastes like 4% ABV. Wanted a bit more from this one, though.

Bottle... Clear amber. Big rhubarb, lesser berry, Tupelo honey, nice acidy. Medium-bodied, milky, no carb. Tart, thin, fruity, rhubarb, hint strawberry. Tart, apple, dry. biggsbowler

jredmond (5610) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Bottle brought to Vinny’s January 2013 tasting. Pours a clear amber body with no head or lacing. Aroma is faint strawberry pie, light crust and honey. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of strawberries, light tartness and a light earthy breadiness.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
PhillyCraft (3429) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Bottle split with James, Alan, Bill, and Pat shared by James. Poured a clearish straw yellow with no head/lacing. Notes were honeycomb, earth, and underripe strawberry. As it became room temp the finish brought about a light tartness from the berries, mostly just flowery honey though. Nice mead but might have needed some more time to bring out the tart fruitiness of the strawberry and rhubarb.
