Pour is a pinkish rose/blush wine color.
Sweet candy cherry aroma, alittle mint like almost.
Taste is cherry,sweet,with some citrus tart. Burns a little with heat. Strong cherry flavor and a bit too sweet. Like the origional more than this.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a brillant reddish pink. Aroma is cherry candy. Flavor is very sweet. Loads of cherry, very sweet without ant tartness to cut through this. Light honey but it really is like drinking sweetened cherry juice. Overall not bad a few ounces at a time.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle - Pours clear light gold and has a big cherry aroma with some honey in the background. The flavor is a very sweet marriage of black cherries and honey that definitely tends more toward the fruit. Like the other Oliver fruit honey wines, it would be nice if they would tone down the syrupy sweetness a bit. The finish is fruity and sweet too. Not bad.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. It poured a reddish color with no head. The aroma was notes of dark cherries, alcohol, and some honey. The flavor was sweet, with a light to moderate acid finish. The taste was a decent amount of fruit character that is very syrupy. This was my first mead, so was not sure what to expect.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black cherry nose. Clear magenta, still. Black cherry flavor, medium body. Delicious, but simple and is more sweet wine-like than mead-like

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Deep artificial red body, it looks and smells like grenadine syrup, only less viscuos. Perfectly still, it doesn’t show legs on the glass when swirled. The nose also has some cherry Jolly Ranchers. The taste is very sweet young mead with a fair amount of the fake cherry taste thrown on top. The beginning is the cherry candy, but then it goes south. As you swallow, you get light paper notes along with a medicinal finish. There is also some persistent band aid. I want to like this, but the off flavors are a little much. Reminiscent of Night Train, this is best drank fast and cold.

wild on the cherry flavor, it brings out a combination between cherry and honey. brings a pretty good balance.
