COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is our first mead released in July 2001. To-date we receive more requests and attention for Black Raspberry Nectar then for any other one of our meads! With the mouth feel and texture of beer and the light taste of a lower alcohol mead this beverage is the very definition of "refreshing".

DrinkEmUpJones (1062) - Georgia, USA - MAR 24, 2012
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.

arminjewell (5992) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 19, 2012
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.

obguthr (3634) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - OCT 21, 2011
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.
