Bottle sample at the source. Clear gold. Still. Slick mouthfeel. Stronger strawberries than rhubarb. A bit bready.

Bottle, I picked up in Santa Rosa. Pours a clear amber. Wow, sweet strawberry jam aroma. Moderately sweet and super strawberry jam-like. Needs more honey? more rhubarb?

Bottle - Sweet strawberry jam. Clear Amber with no head. Light sweet and jammy strawberry. Good, but for what I can get not that great.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasting at Matt’s; corked, 14% ABV
Dark amber color with old red hue. Raspberry jam aroma. Sweet raspberry jam flavor, with a hint of alcohol. That’s pretty much what you get, not overly complex, but pleasant.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reddish-brown. The aroma is all strawberry jam. On the palate, very sweet, strawberry jam, but with a lot of acidity in the finish, which I guess is that rhubarb. No mead character detected. So a random beverage with strawberry jam.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark ruby colour. Aroma of strawberry and rhubarb. Flavour is the same. Liquid pie. Very sweet. But pleasant as a dessert drink.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375mL bottle, pours a deep dark purple-ish red with a small white head. Aroma brings out lovely strawberry and rhubarb sweetness, followed by honey, and a touch of treacle. Flavour is along the same lines, with loads of rhubarb upfront, followed by a touch of strawberries, and medium sweet honey. Integrated well, with loads of fruit dominating the finish. Excellent.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle purchased at The Davis Food Co-Op for essentially half off. The aroma on this is just really difficult to put a finger on. I suppose it’s the rhubarb now that I smell it more. Not much else happening here. I also get some burnt tire character. Almost like someone spun some tires! That’s it! I’m wiling to bet it’s due to the rubber cork that was used. Transparent amber body with a still head present. Starts with a semi-sweet and semi-tart fruit FInishes with a little honey late on. Ethanol is pretty well hidden. It’s just that rubbery tire and rubber cork flavor and aroma that is just off-putting.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours rusty red brown. Aroma is rhubarb, earthy with mild raspberry notes. Flavor is nice strawberry up front. More fresh red with light green notes. Hints of rhubarb powering through with earth and subtle tartness. Nice balance between sweet and tart. Medium in body. Solid.
