magsinva (860) - Virginia, USA - JAN 15, 2014
Bottle from TWM Sterling - pours clear gold, still. The strawberry is understated until the mead comes to cellar temp, then it starts to get a bit syrupy. I’m not getting a lot of the honey characteristics, which is disappointing. Drinkable, but I’m not in love with it.

Chudwick (1972) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - SEP 25, 2013
75cl bottle - pours like watered down rosé and very clear. Nose reminds me of strawberry sirop by Teisseirre and gets a bunch of nostalgia points. There is one other smell and I can only assume it is from the honey. very sweet with slight booziness. Sticky like cough syrup minus the DXM. Curious to try the other Oliver flavored meads.

MeadMe (1284) - Riverview, Florida, USA - AUG 7, 2013
Pours a clear yellow. Aromas of fresh picked strawberry. Flavor is honey sweet with lots of candy like strawberry. I have the feeling there is some artificial flavoring involved but who cares it tastes great. On the thinner side of body and easy to drink. Like these tasty and inexpensive Oliver meads.

JaBier (4730) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAR 9, 2013
750 mL bottle. Clear yellow pour with no head and no legs. Aroma of strawberry extract, honey and sweet white wine. Honey and strawberry flavor with breadiness and dry white wine through to the finish.

obguthr (3636) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 29, 2010
Strong strawberry wine nose. Clear pink, still. Tastes like strawberry wine with little mead character. Tastes fine, but a bit of a novelty.

maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 18, 2010
Bottle on 02/17/2010. Clear pink body with no head. Big strawberry aroma with light honey. Sweet strawberry flavor with light honey. A bit too artificial, somewhat like strawberry hard candy. Medium full body with no carbonation.

heemer77 (5096) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JAN 6, 2010
Light red watermelon Jolly Rancher colored body with a little bit of thin legs left in the glass. There was a strong nose of strawberries with a little bit of dandelions. A vinous note also creeps in with each sniff. The taste was fairly alcoholic with the initial art of each drink. Then there is a hot finish that almost overwhelms the strawberry fruit character. This is more pleasant than the Black Cherry version as it doesn’t have the off medicinal flavors. Just fruit and alcohol. Actually decent as long as it is sipped.

Rustyham (1717) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - OCT 4, 2009
Really great honey and strawberry smell, but the palate is thin. Flavor is a little candyish, like lifesaver. Taste of honey is pretty weak and the strawberry seems fake. Still delish, tho- just a little unnnatural. Bottle at Total Wine and Spirits, North Miami Beach, Florida.

Palidor19 (2919) - Brandon, Florida, USA - JUL 15, 2009

nick76 (4170) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 15, 2009
The aroma is sweet with strawberries and a touch of honey. The appearance is pink and still. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall this is good to taste but not an outstanding mead.
