Sweet. A little tart but not too much. Very sweet but still refreshing. The carbonation helps to mix up the sweetness.

Sample on tap at the meadery. Mostly clear red / pink color. Virtually no head or lace. Nice black currant nose, honey. Bigger body. Lighter carbonation. Very lightly syrupy. Mostly sweet taste, lightly tart. Kind of spicy. Not really my style, but it’s well-done and I appreciate the creativity

Can’t remember who pulled this bottle out at Muckfest III - Pours purple-pink with no head. Sweet honey on the nose, with mellow berry notes. Taste has lots of sweet berries, a bit of apple, white grape, and honey. Not tons of carbonation, but real smooth. Very easy to drink, sweet without being cloying, and pretty refreshing. Very little hint of alcohol. This stuff could get me in trouble.
