Deep berry notes in the nose, think the currants lead the way, has a clean expression not lots of honey, but clean. The color is dark garnet, big legs on the edge of the glass. Flavor WOW big fruit expression nice amount of honey balanced by the tart fruits.

phaleslu (5863) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Bottle shared at RBWG, Friday night tasting and the Dumptown Inn. Pours a hazy rose color with no head. Notes of honey, berries, grapes - actually comes together like a nice blueberry pie. Medium-full bodied, with a sweet, smooth mouthfeel and low carbonation. Really nice mead. I’d like to try more from these guys.

Ferris (2001) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 11, 2014
Bottle - Nice honey and berries. Clear maroon with no head. Overripe berries, sweet with some nice tartness. Not cloying and fairly clean finish for a mead. Very well done.

Aroma of mild berries, but not bursting. Taste is big - fresh berries, very smooth, and lovely to drink. Sticky finish. Goodish mead.

The aroma is a blend of honey, and dark fruits, you can pick them all up, Cherries, Black Currants, and Blueberries, a little bit of alcohol is evident, but looking at the ABV no wonder. The flavor is a masterful blend, love the complexity between the fruits (which add a bit of tartness) and the honey. Enjoyable on its own or with a prime rib! Fantastic job Moonlight!!!
