3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle via trade with radarsock, I think. Poured a medium bodied blood red body with no head and no carbonation, hell it’s a mead afterall. vinous red wine notes, not much else going on. Body is super thin with no carbonation and a quick fading aftertaste. Flavor is a bit better with some solid hops followed by lots of red wine, breads, crusts, grass, mrelot. Interesting.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle to glass. Pours a mostly clear ruby mahogany color with a small amount of sediment and zero head. Aroma is a sweet blueberry, artificial grape like character, a hint of maple, and some booze. Flavor is quite boozy, with some wine like sweetness. Very little hops are present in aroma or flavor. Light and oily body with a booze burn. Interesting, but not my favorite mead.
