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.

stoutnick (729) - 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 (4667) - 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.

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.
