Very nice mead, the blackberry comes through amazingly, I donít understand the low rating on this one because itís a fantastically balanced semi sweet mead with amazing mouthfeel.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUN 6, 2016
Bottle at Woodshop 10 thanks to richiesd. Wicked appearance of inky purple with massive legs upon swirl. Nose is thick blueberry/marionberry cobbler, some fruit punch. Taste is sweet and sour with great interplay and balance. Thereís some berry skin tannins for balance to the degree that it tastes like pinot noir. Tremendous mead.
