3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Redstone’s newest mead as of my tasting. Aroma full of honey. Flavor is mainly a light to medium bodied honey with delicate plum detectable after searching. Overall this finishes with too heavy of a sweetness. It could really use the balance of oak aging or addition of spice to counter the sweetness.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour out of bottle is very light yellow, aroma brought slight plum and tropical fruit notes with the honey, touch of vanilla and alcohol notes as well. Taste is a mix of honey and fruity notes, very slight on the plum but is there, alcohol comes through but just warms. Nice one, a bit sweet however.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear brilliant gold. Aroma of medicinal cough syrup, a touch of plum, and a touch of spearmint. Not too keen on aroma. Fortunately the flavor has much more plum. Nice juicy plum tones throughout the taste structure, with a gentle sweetness throughout with warm alcohol tones toward the back. Great to drink, just not a fan of the aroma.

A light golden mead. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of plums. The flavor is quite sweet with notes of plums as well as a light touch of wood, making it quite dry.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2003 production. No head (still). Body is murky medium pinkish-yellow. Aroma is notes of honey, passion fruit, nectarine, plum, etc. Flavor is harshly sweet, moderately acidic. Finish is heavily sweet, moderately acidic. Medium body, watery (almost syrupy) texture, flat carbonation, lightly alcoholic. I like how the varied fruit aroma doesn't overpower the honey character, and although it's pretty sweet, the finish is such that it's still quite drinkable for a mead. Pleasant.
