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.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2013 Bottle shared at MuckFest 3 - Saturday Edition. Pours a richly ruby red hue, glowing pink red berry with a good firm haze, mellow glow. Frothy whitish head atop dies to a small ring, minimal lacing. Aromas are clover honey, grass, and gentle black currant. A touch of deeper berry darker, touch of tannin. Sweeter honey and apples. Initial is sweeter, cherries and blackberry. Richer honey, honeycrisp apples, sweetness, mellow life offers sweetness, crisp florals, gentle dryness and linger sweet honey, black currant, touches of raspberry. Simple, yet flavorful. A touch sweet. Solid. Update 7/5/13 @ Brewery: less sweet, more vibrant on tap. Nice blackberry pulpy presence and mellow tartness. Nice body. Gained 2 points

This was something else. Bright magenta in the glass. Very tart on the end, yet there’s a lot of sweetness poking through. Just a little too over the top for me, but definitely worth tasting. The aroma does not lead you to believe that it will have such a big flavor.
