Bottle courtesy of StFun, thanks man! Deep red pour, no head. Aromas of honey and currants. Flavor is fresh currant and honey. Awesome balance of tart and sweet! Very light and easy to drink. Sweet, but not too sweet. No trace of that 8% abv either. This is awesome!

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

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft to taster at New Day. Looks good; a transparent ruby red with soft carbonation. Smells solid; honey and currants. Tastes like it smells with a very tart mouthfeel. Not bad, but a bit tart.
