Really love this one, light amount of strawberry and the rhubarb adds to the tartness... a bit jammy but it works.

jackl (4965) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 30, 2014
Bottle. Peachy pink pour with no head. Nose is so strong and sweet. Strawberry fruit by the foot Bomb. Wow. Taste is similar. Very strong jammy strawberry with some rhubarb earthiness. So oily and full. Sweet but pleasing.

375 ml bottle purchased from the meadery. Ruby with a pink hue color. Aroma is a blast of honey and plenty of strawberry notes.

Everybody knows honey is sweet but the sweetness upfront of this one is over the top. A tad of rhubarb tries to balance it... And it is in fact noticeable here but, it still doesn’t balance it.

alexsdad06 (5880) - Ohio, USA - APR 4, 2014
Bottle sample during RBWG. Pours a brilliant pink color with no head. The aroma and flavor have sweet honey, strawberry and berry fruit character, a mild tart herbal note that cuts the sweetness a bit. Interesting mead.

phaleslu (6812) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Bottle at RBWG during the Friday night DownedTown Inn bottle share- I think this one was shared by jcwattsrugger. T. Hanks! Looks like a rose wine on the pour. Notes of honey, apple, strawberries, rhubarb, and stone fruit. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a sweet mouthfeel. Another good mead from Moonlight.
