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".

Very good! You can really taste the honey. I like this, but I think the Sunshine Nectar is better

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.

(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, you’ll 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 (3093) - Cox’s 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.

First mead in a can. Nice packaging and great to take along for the girlfriend on camping trips or to the lake. A sweet mead that has good fruit flavor and aroma, lacking some honey aroma and flavor that homebrewed meads seem to have more of but a great commercial example of a fruit mead.

Bottle. Honey, blackberry, and alcohol aroma. Yellow-orange. Strong honey and light berry flavor. Light alcohol finish. Very pleasant.

Danyel (460) - Colorado, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Can. Pours dark pink/ fuscia with no head. Very b.eautiful and elegant looking mead! Does not have too much of an aroma- what it does have is honey and a little fruit. Very fruity, tastes like fruit punch actually. Sweet, something is a little funky about it. It has a nice flavor to it but maybe a little too cough-syrupy. An okay mead.

brokensail (9921) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 9, 2013
Bottle @ Redstone. Nice pink pour, good clarity. Sweet candy sugar, honey, and berries. Quite fruity. Kind of simplistic. Flavor is just quite sweet and fruity. Berry, honey, and sugar. A light floral note to it. Just okay, not my favorite of their meads.

Great, just great!!! Like fresh raspberries and honey. Like carbonation helps with the body.
