Redstone’s flagship mead! Lovely color & smooth fruitiness make this our most popular mead. Also blends well with porters, stouts, wheat beers, and sour ales! 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".

On tap at 2011 Garden Grapes and Hops at the Denver Botanic Gardens. Purpleish red, smelled of dark berries, raspberries, blueberries, and some unprocessed raw honey. Tasted much the same, but had that berry-ish dry acidity. Loads of honey and blackberries and raspberries. Sweet and tart. OK at best.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 8, 2011
Draught at Toronado, San Francisco. Sparkling purple red colour. Crystal clear. No head. Delicate fruity raspberry aroma. Body is quite light and the mead quite dry. Some residual sugars of course, but just enough. High carbonation level. Hints of wax/plastic.

I’m not getting a lot of aroma here. Pours grape juice with little head and leaves no lacing. Really benefits from aerating because that releases the raspberry without the cloying sweetness you expect from mead. Clean finish. At 8% it really sneaks up on you.

Bottle. Pours pink with a fizzy off-white head. Sweet aroma of raspberries and honey. Flavor was sweet and fruity with notes of honey and had a slightly sweet and dry finish

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - FEB 7, 2011
Tap at Toronado SF. Knowing this was part of the blend on Veritas 001 and Veritas 002, I was looking forward to a real treat. The pour is a clear, ultra glowing raspberry juice with some thin, white bubbles. Not looking for a head in this one. Aroma is white grape juice, some plastic off-character, cherry juice box. Taste is cherry juicy juice, sweet candies, plastic, and actually there is a dominating taste that reminds me of a very specific flavor from my childhood: In Jacksonville, FL growing up there was a place called The Landing. This was a place to dock your boat and then go shopping and eat. It turned into a sort of B-rate mall in a fast delapidating downtown. In this very odd, mostly empty "mall" was a candy store that proved quite popular. One item they used to sell was an assortment of small, clear wax cola bottles that would be filled with various colored liquids. You would take one of the wax bottles (about the size of a finger) and rip off the top "cap" of wax to drink the sugar liquid. The cherry version of the waxed sugar bottles is almost exactly the flavor you get out of Redstone Black Raspberry Mead.

JaBier (7027) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JAN 7, 2011
Bottle shared by a friend. Clear reddish pink pour with a medium white head. Aroma is honey, blackberry and raspberry. Flavor is slightly carbonated flavor with some berry character and honey with only a slight syrupy character. Semi sweet overall with a slightly dry finish.

[Tap] Pours a clear pink color with no head and fizzy carbonation. Aroma of sweet fruits and residual sugars. The taste is of raspberry, honey, vanilla, white wine and apples. Reminds me of a wine cooler with a little more of an alcohol warmth in the finish. The body is about average. This one is not really my thing.

Arayaga2 (2129) - portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 13, 2010
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 (2359) - 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.
