magsinva (918) - Virginia, USA - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle from App Vintner - pours clear red, still. Really aggressive rhubarb, strawberry, red berries, cooked vegetables, cough drop, alcohol, ginger, and clove on the nose. I feel vaguely assaulted from the aroma. Again, I feel like my tongue was stabbed with tartness, followed by sweet alcohol cough syrup. Very syrupy mouthfeel. Overall, it’s drinkable, but not one I’d want to drink again, unfortunately. It’s too aggressive for me.

DiarmaidBHK (3597) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle from Appalachian vintner. Pours brownish red. The combination of strawberry and rhubarb on the nose suggest stinky feet. Fairly sweet on the tongue with a hint of the rhubarb on the finish. Not sure about this one.

stoutnick (637) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - DEC 27, 2014
Strawberry pour. Aroma is great - strawberries, rich jam. Taste is the same with some tang (rhubarb?). Only drawback is the strong alcohol in the mix also. Nice mead.

snoworsummer (2631) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 25, 2014
From a bottle in Savannah. Pours clear faint ruby. Smells like heavy strawberry, semisweet honey, and faint vanilla. Tastes like very fruity with some background honey, faint tartness, and faint spice. Quite fruity but smooth and clean.

jackl (5063) - 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.

AirForceHops (3646) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 2, 2014
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.
