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!

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.
