Medium body with flavors of floral honey and semi-sweet cherry. The finish is fruity with an earthy cherry aftertaste. Decent overall.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at Iechyd Da (good on them for throwing on a guest tap mead). Pours a mostly clear pink hue. Nose is flowery with honey and fruit notes along with a very clean yeast. Pretty sweet, decently tart. Lighter body, softer, snappy, finishing dry. This was especially tasty, and I’m excited that New Day will begin distributing bottles of this soon.
