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".

"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..."

Sweet aroma of honey and berries rises from a light, clear, plum color pour. The palate is sweet raspberry combined with dry honey with a hint of carbonation.

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.

Homer321 (1887) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - AUG 4, 2014
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.

Can. Pours a clear light pink with visible carbonation but no head whatsoever. Aroma has a very earthy dry honey note with a bit of plastic and light raspberry underlying. Flavor has lots of dry honey and some bitter raspberry as well as a touch of plastic.

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.

rumproasts (2879) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 30, 2014
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.

Poured a pale pink color with aromas if black raspberries, light sweet honey and a touch of apples. Flavors are sparkling cider with some light honey and black raspberries. Wow this is solid could enjoy multiples of this.

Honey smell and taste. Light berry aftertaste. The mouthfeel was a tad bit watery compared to other meads. It says in the description "the mouth feel and texture of beer", which is somewhat accurate and not bad, but it’s just not something I’m wild about in mead. If you want carbonation done right, see Superstition’s Sparkling Marion Berry mead.
