My first mead rating. No head and no bubbles whatsoever. Red Koolaid color. Sweet. Slight alchohol taste, but covered with sweetness. Smell is very, very light. Maybe a little bit of cranberry, but difficult to tell especially with no carbonation. Not too drinkable with the alchohol and sweetness (and I love sweetness), but maybe with some cheese.

pink, cranberry juice appearance, with no head. sweet, strawberry, raspberry and cranberry aroma. As expected, raspberry is the dominant flavor, with some honey sweetness in the background. Mildly effervescent. Refreshing, accessible, and not as intense as most of the meads I’ve sampled.

2007 - North American Organic Brewers Festival – Portland, Oregon
Deep reddish color with a great fruity aroma. This was a great after dinner drink for me. The flavors where thick with fruit and very sweet to the mouth feel. A very refreshing drink and great for those who do not like beer but ore like a sweet wine. Good stuff.

Tasted at the fifth annual Colorado Wine Tasting Festival in Manitou Springs, CO. Again, a nice raspberry nose and body mingled with the dry honey taste. But as with the other nectar series, I could have lived without the carbonation.

The aroma is sweet and fruity with raspberry and plastic. The appearance is berry red. The flavor is sweet and fruity without being cloying. The palate is thin but refreshing. Overall a really good mead.

this is the best nectar style yet. it’s highly fizzy with flavor of sweet, ripe rassberries. the palate is thin, yet the rest of the mead fulfills your tastebuds. perfect for the spring.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle. Pours a clear reddish pink with some effervescence. The aroma was honey and raspberries, but not sweet smelling. The flavor was a bit sweeter with the honey and raspberry flavors well-balanced. The light carbonation in combination with the flavors yields a mead that is very light on the palate and quite refreshing. And the cobalt blue bottle with the swing-top and their unique lable design deserve mention as well.
