pours a clear red/purple color. strong honey sweetness aroma from glass. more honey sweetness than i remember from previous mead entries. very much on the sweet side. honey is, of course, the dominant flavor with genuine notes of blueberry. some phenolic character that imparts an herbal coolness to the palate. a decent punch of booze. it marries the honey and blueberry flavors nicely. perceived as thick for the style considering the sweetness.

Bottle shared by Travlr. Pours clear pale purple and still. Aroma is blueberry, honey and light straw. Flavor is lightly tart blueberry, honey and a dry finish. Medium body.

Soft blue color. Blueberries and honey in the nose. The mead itself is a pretty good balance of sweetness from the berries and a dry mead. Good stuff.

A dry mead, balanced with blueberries, not overly heavy in either the blueberry or honey notes, nice and light... tasty.

Ruby pour, light purple on the edges. Alcohol burn up front, cherry, berry, overripe fruit...canít get past the alcohol. Much better as it warms.

Great expression of the blueberries with honey, the flavor is a light off dry blueberry and honey, aroma supports and as all the meads I have seen crystal clear.

Softer expression of the fruit in this one than the others, a great experience to visit the meadery. The honey is light, medium to thin in body. Over all enjoyable and lovely as all the others I tried.

Lots of blueberry notes in the aroma and flavor, itís an excellent example of a melomel its just on the drier side, I like them a bit sweeter.

Floral blueberries and honey in the aroma, smells much sweeter than it tastes, itís clean, no off notes, the slightest hint of alcohol but very pleasing. The color is a dark blue hue, crystal clean, legs that stretch for ever. The flavor is dry, not semi-sweet of sweet, beautiful blueberry notes, a slight tartness in the finish.

The blueberries are deep and wonderful in the aroma, honey evident but light to moderate, a tiny note of alcohol but very enjoyable. The appearance is a deep dark blue, crystal clear, long lasting legs. The taste oh freaking amazing, itís not sweet closer to dry or off dry, lots of blueberry notes, and supported by the alcohol and warming. Finishes clean with a touch of tartness. Overall dynamite, find this one.
