COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Red Currant Honey Wine.
This little number is sweet and secy, just the right balance between the honey and the red currants. Enjoy this with a variety of complex dishes, like Durbon curried chicken (a South African favorite), Moroccan lamb, or Beef stew.

Solid berry mead. Dark red colored. Pretty much on the sweet, fruity side, but still a nice drinkable mead.

3/8/16. The in-laws wanted to try some meads, and this is just about the only meadery I can get locally. $16/375 seems a touch steep, but oh well. Cute red pour, mild legs. Sweet aroma, loads of honey in the aroma, lightly tart, some berry aspects. Good flavor, berries definitely present, sweet, lots of honey character. Not bad.

BMan1113VR (7914) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 27, 2015
Older Bottle. Pours with a clear deep rust hued body with a touch of bubbles (despite no evident carbonation). Aromas are of deep fruit, dehydrated berries, lightly funky darker currants. Flavors are jammy, tannic and lightly metallic. Lots of curranty, ripe and slightly funky character. Vinous, lots of sweetness to round it out. Biscuity, decent acidity. Overall, decent [not a fruit I really enjoy] red currant character on a clean base

Cybercat (4635) - Georgia, USA - OCT 15, 2015
Pours clear golden Amber, got no head but this is dry mead. Aroma presents strong honey and pomme tones. Honey is the star of the flavor, but let’s some fruit notes through - this could deceive you, so beware! Finish is honey sweet. Mouthfeel presents typical body and fizz for a mead. Put on your red dress and catch the buzz!

SpongeRuiner (1084) - Michigan, USA - SEP 5, 2015
Pours into a frosty clear red orange color. Big honey nose with an alcohol touch. A big apple flavor with a dry red wine flavor with the currants. Very easy drinking. A little more like a cider than mead. Solid stuff.

Canberra brewers BJCP tastings. Massive honey aroma. Sytrupy but not overly sweet. Berry aroma and tartness. Lovely.

TizzleJizzle (760) - Garland, Texas, USA - MAR 23, 2015
Bottle from the Bluebonnet Brew-Off. Poured a clear light red with a then white head. Taste of citrus, berries, grapes, and honey. Medium body. Overall the alcohol is hidden deceptively well, and this mead is exceptionally easy to drink.
