Rated on 01-31-2015 at 800 Degree Three Fires, Fort Wayne, IN. This mead has a small head that is fully lasting and an orange body. The aroma is sweet, cherries, honey, and quite tart. The flavor is quite sweet, cherries and honey. The mouthfeel is light carbonation and this mead is medium bodied. Overall, a very quaffable mead and worth trying.

Clear, nearly pink....
Leafy, cherry scent.
Flavour is intense cherry....honey...sweet and tart.
The scent is barely a hint of the full cherry-bomb flavor in this one.

Pour on tap at the meadery, hazy pinkish with thin white head, aroma brought notes of cherry juice, pith, some slight honey, slight cinnamon-spice as well. Taste is sweet cherry, some cough syrup notes into a bit of honey, floral notes, touch of vanilla, finishing sweet.

Draft - Medicinal cherry, like cough syrup. Cloudy pink with a white head. Sweetness, light tartness and that same medicinal cherry. Not a fan.

Sample at the DBLDP on 08/31/2014. Dark pinkish-red color with a thin white head that dissipates quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing. Floral aroma with cherry and honey notes. Medium body with flavors of floral honey and semi-sweet cherry. The finish is fruity with an earthy cherry aftertaste. Decent overall.

Bottle. Slightly pink pour. Nose is a little funky at first but as it warms up some floral and cherry notes come out. Flavor is sweet with notes of cherry. Decent mead.

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.
