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".

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. Doesnít have an alcohol flavor like the raspberry mead I brewed. I would drink this again.

rumproasts (2734) - 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.

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 itís just not something Iím wild about in mead. If you want carbonation done right, see Superstitionís Sparkling Marion Berry mead.

Nephilium (1309) - Ohio, USA - APR 10, 2014
(Split from a 500 ml can) Pours a clear pink color, with visible carbonation and no head. The raspberry flavor is the predominant flavor notes, with just a touch of honey coming through. If you prefer your meads heavy on fruit and sweetness, youíll probably enjoy this more then I did.

Sweet sticky mess. Arome is berries, honey. The appearance is deep amber, clear. The flavor is super sweet honey, berries, cherries, over the top. The finish is sticky sweet fruity beery, honey. Sticky mouthfeel, thick in body. Overdone.

Patrickctenchi (3401) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Bottle: Pours muted pink-amber, no head. Aroma is peach, strawberry, raspberry. Sweet-tart black raspberry taste, good honey in the body. A ton of berry notes with a soft, warming alcohol. A nice winter sipper.
