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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampler at the New Day Bar (Indianapolis, IN). First visit. Great visit! Pours a nice glowing reddish pink pour,f aint haze, rich glow and hues with a loose whitish pink bubbly head atop. Frothy small ring laces ok. Aroma are cherry, gentle sweetness, kiss of honey, floral, hibiscus. A gentle sweeter pie cherry appeal, mellow honey, bit of earth and sweetness. Initial is a bit fuzzy, mellow carbonation compliments some tart and sweet cherry, a bit of tannic cherryskin. Some melloow honey, bit of tartness, faint floral feel. Middle is spritzy, a bit tart, some gentle honey and cherry elements become more firm as we round the corner. Not thick or cloying, quite drinkable and light. Some gentle honey, cherryskin, clover, and floral elements. Mellow sweetness, tart cherry, light carbonation lightens the body. Pretty nice, a bit more fruity and tart, lighter body, the carbonation aids that tartness. Fun one.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
tap at Dash In last year - Pours clear orange and has a mild aroma of honey with a hint of cherry. The flavor is sweet, if anything maybe too sweet though not as overboard as the Oliver meads, with honey and cherries both apparent and blended well. There’s just a touch of carbonation. My glass could not be called lively. Overall it’s a very tasty mead.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft to taster. Looks good; the color of a watermelon Jolly Rancher with razor-thin white lacing. Smells and tastes of cherry and honey with a nice, light and dry finish that’s good on the palate. A decent carbonated mead.
