Sweet and berry flavor. Bright clear reddish pour. Like a light blueberry wine cooler. Not bad. Pour at Maine Mead Works in Portland Maine on our brewery tour.

BiiruBierBeer (932) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Pretty watery for a mead. Smell is fruity. Taste is very lacking in honey and mostly just tastes watery and fruity.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 22.06.2013, 0,75l bottle sampled @ The Festival Portland Maine:
Aroma and taste are both kind of Sangria like. Slightly fruity, red berries, grass, citrus, hints of honey. Fair enough.

j12601 (9549) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Tried this at the meadery, both versions. There’s this version and a “sweet blueberry”, which for RB standards is the same thing, as it’s the same mead with double the fruit. Pours a clear pink to purple. Soft plastic notes, gentle dusty blueberries. They’re a little more prominent on the double fruit version. Tasty, soft and dusty. Dries out nicely with lingering dusty blueberries. Score is from the ’sweet’ version, which was a bit better and more vibrant.
