On tap at Belmont Station Bier Cafe, pours a clear orange amber with no head. Nose brings out honey and bees wax. Flavour is fairly weak for the style, with honey, bees wax, and light raspberry. Very thin mouthfeel for the style, but the flavours are nice enough. Decent mead.

"Another that covers up the 8% dangerously well. Sweet and tart berries with a kiss of honey in an oh so refreshing package. Really starting to like these guys..."

Draft at John Strongbow’s in Alexandria VA. Poured a clear dark ruby red color without a head at all. Aroma was sweet raspberry juice in dry honey. Flavor was dry, semi-sweet honey notes with a touch of fruit punch notes. Alcohol pretty well masked.

Pours a pinkish red color. Minimal white head. Nose is very fruity with some sulfur. Taste is semi sweet with a light fruit expression. Tastes much better than it smells.

Light nose typical for a mead. Appearance clear light red color. Sweet flavor of honey with raspberry on finish. Light mouthfeel. No funky aftertaste. Doesn’t have an alcohol flavor like the raspberry mead I brewed. I would drink this again.

can. deep red with minimal head. starts off sweet and fruity, but then a odd cough syrup thing kicks in and ruins everything. i had high hopes for this one, but ended pouring half of it down the drain.
