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".

mcberko (7830) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 22, 2014
On tap at Belmont Station Bier Cafe, pours a clear orange amber with no head. Nose brings out honey and bees wax. Flavour is fairly weak for the style, with honey, bees wax, and light raspberry. Very thin mouthfeel for the style, but the flavours are nice enough. Decent mead.

"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 (2371) - 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.

deyholla (7370) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 15, 2014
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.

Bones farm strawberry wine colored pour. And oddly it tastes a little like it. Light carb, lightly sweet sjd do merging a bit off.
