pours fizzy purple/pink. Medium aroma-raspberry, cherry, honey. Palate has medium carbonation but is honeyed and silky. Flavor is fruity and honeyed, but the carbonation keeps it from being too sweet.

Mead on tap...interesting! Pour on tap at the meadery was dark purple with thin to no head, aroma was sweet blackberry, slight honey, dry oak. Taste was sweet, with berry and oak notes complementing the honey, finishing fairly sweet. Ok, the sparkling aspect threw me off a bit.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Apple and honey nose, vague floral hints, not really berry-like. Rose colored, slight effervescent. Spritzy which detracts in this instance. Raspberry initially with a surge of honey at midpalate. Oddly bready in the finish. NIce transitions, but drinks like a wine cooler and doesn’t taste all that great.
