5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
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!!!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle with a bunch of heady brahs. Pours reddish color, slightly clearish, not much head or lacing. Aromas and flavor are big berry, backberry and blueberry mostly, some sour fruit, and rich oak. Another winner from Moonlight especially when you consider the pricing point on these meads.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by Michael Fairbrother. Pours a deep and rich ruby red, still. Nose shows a great balance of the current & cherries, the blueberries offering a hint of vanilla to with some spice. Super clean. Some light alcohol notes and the honey is there but secondary. On tasting, well balanced, though on the more tart side. Light alcohol warming and clean honey finish. Really nice Melomel, if not quite as deep in the fruit department.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Clear ruby red and still. Aroma of berries, medicinal and alcohol. Flavor is more berries, sweet with some light tartness, alcohol warming. Decent mead, slightly off putting medicinal aromas but they got lighter as the mead breathed.
