Good job covering the abv on this one. Tastes thick and full, and obviously a little sweet with lots of florals, berry and honey on the nose and palate...but never hot. Nicely done.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a bomber. Poured into a mug and it looks kind of like root beer including the tan foam. A berry aroma leads by plenty. I am not familiar with this variety but it smells kind of like blue berries. Flavor is complex and generally sweet. It tastes like a mead and that honey. It also has rich malts, berries, grain, and earth. The foam is never less than a half finger and helps to give a creamy feel. I don’t taste alcohol but sure can feel it! The final sip was almost pure sugary honey. Dangerously easy to drink.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thin head of varying sized bubbles that reduces quite quickly. Sweet malty aroma with lots of ripe fruit, raisins and berries. Dominated by sweetness and fruit. Color is a very cloudy dark mahagony brown. Thick and syrupy looking from the pour. Body is a bit thinner than expected but still on the thick side. More ripe fruit, berries, sweet malts, caramel and toasted grains. Certainly has the characteristics of a fine mead from all the honey. Strong alcohol presence and warming that makes the gums tingle. Finishes sweet and malty. A decent mead but not a great one.

Tap at Qbrick. Sweet berry nose, spice, sage, with other fizzy fruitiness jumping up. Dark reddish brown color, with a creamy tan head. Thick berry initial, light plums too. Sweetness strengthens in mid palate, with grapes and more berries. Thick body. Very nice flavors and a punchy fruity nose.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours clear, ruby-tinged mahogany with a thick and rather persistent buff head. Aroma of marionberries - must be marionberies! - reaches out and grabs you from half a meter away; the next whiff adds malty and honey tones to the mix. Flavor starts with a marionberry core, somewhat tart but not face-scrunching, and adds fresh malt, honey, and a bit of woody and slightly bitter hops as the taste buds fire. Mouthfeel presents firm body and a marionberry finish, if not lots of fizz. Berry good.

Draught at Imazato. Murky ruby pour with no head. Marionberry aroma with a bunch of booze behind it. Berries, dark fruit and again, a lot of booze.
