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".

Clear red with little apparent carbonation. Aroma is berry, but rather weakly so, with the vinous notes of a fruit wine. Taste is also like a diluted fruit wine, with some flight tartness, and a funky, sake-like fermentation character. It’s sweet and smooth, but more like an alco-pop at the end of it, with a light fizz and cloying sweetness. $7/22oz

SDalkoholic (2141) - Linda Vista, California, USA - APR 24, 2010
On tap @ O’Brien’s Pub: poured into a chimay glass as a vibrant glowing red hue with no formation of head. The scent was sweet and tart and smelled like fresh fruit. Flavors were also sweet and fruity, but tasted like artifical cherry juice or strawberry jam. Also, a bit tart and tasting like a zinfandel wine, but a little harsher.

On tap at O’Brien’s in SD. Rose glass with no head. Very light smooth taste. Velvet in the mouth. Honey and medicine. Light finish. Very enjoyable.

degbert (1075) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 10, 2010
Poured from bottle. Very nice raspberry bouquet. Color was a faint, transparent violet or lavender. Taste is very dry, with the raspberry in the forefront followed by a slightly bitter finish. Very clean and slightly frizzante.

yngwie (13200) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 24, 2010
Bottle, 75cl, blue. The oily pour leaves a clear drink with a pinkish hue and no head. Berryish nsoe with honey notes. Sweet flavor with berry sweetness, some honey, raspberry and a papery touch. Medium, almost sticky mouthfeel. A decent one, but nothing more in my book. 091024

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - FEB 22, 2010
Pours a kinda pinkish color. Aroma of light honey & Raspberry. Flavor is the same. Mouth feel is kinda watery with light, fizzy carbonation. Overall, tasty and easy to drink.

Strawberry wine colored. No foam, head, or lace. Smells like sweet strawberry wine. Tastes the same. Palate is a little bitter. Taste and finish are both very clean. Tastes like a wine. Drinks like a soda.

jsquire (3400) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - DEC 25, 2009
Clear, jewel like garnet color and it seemed still to me. Black raspberry jelly nose. Tastes like raspberry soda pop or my mom’s wild black raspberry jelly. Clean natural flavors over a nice honey sweetness.
