COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

AirForceHops (3509) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 25, 2014
Sampled at Moonlight Meadery. Aroma is light berries and a red wine note. The honey body is balanced nice with current and a red grape hint. Nice body with a sweet finish. Tasty

stoutnick (615) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - SEP 6, 2014
Looks like watered down Ribena. Aroma is marvellous - honey, cinnamon, mild fruit. Taste is tangy up front followed by mild honey. Would of loved a bit more honey and spice. But yet another quality mead from the Moonlight guys.

burg326 (3877) - Florida, USA - AUG 14, 2014
Poured a nice deep red color with some pink highlights with aromas of sweet honey, red currants, light berries and some light earth. Flavors were sweet jam of berries, and red currents, light honey, very enjoyable, way too easy to drink, abv is hidden well in this one.

Leighton (11855) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2014
Bottle sample at Provisions - Northampton, MA. Delicious. Great honey character with nips of berries and lightly bitter berry skins dancing about. Light warmth in the finish. Great balance. Delectable.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 17, 2013
Draft at NHC. Pours a deep gold, pushing coppery red. Still, good clarity. Nose is red berries, cranberry with a subtle floral component underneath. On tasting, moderate acidity and balanced. Feels semi-sweet with good structure. Good honey profile to this as well. Nice stuff.

decaturstevo (5213) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUN 5, 2013
Cherry red pour with light pink head. Aroma is sour black cherries and abv. Flat black cherry flavor with a nice abv warmth. Full bodied with no carbonation.

markwise (4543) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 6, 2013
Mead generously shared at RBWG. Pours a still hazy amber. Nose is light honey, raspberry, currant, and some tart notes. Flavor is similar- some light honey followed by berries, currants, and some tart notes from the ingredients. Light to medium in body and nice overall.
