We originally liked this better than the cherry version. A couple days later, I flipped it as cherry more drinkable. Raspberry tartness soon overpowered by sweetness.

Bottle thanks to fishmich! Pours clear deep ruby magenta, no head, no lacing. Aroma is tons of raspberry, honey, stems and vines. Flavor is fully sweet, loads of raspberries and seeds, honey with a bit of a pungent herbal note, like desert honey almost. Medium body. Lovely sipper. Wife loved it, perhaps too much.

Sample at Schrammís on 8/9/15. Clear dark red pour with no head and some legs. Aroma of sweet raspberry and honey. Sweet raspberry and honey flavor with a bit of raspberry tartness in the finish.

God I love this stuff. Appearance is translucent. Beautiful color. Smells of just juicy raspberries. Quite sweet and the honey really shines through. There is a nice tannic back end but the aftertaste is not dry. Wonderful.

Just delicious. Looks like a juice - very red and slightly opaque. Smells like a chocolate covered raspberry. The raspberry in the taste is duller than you would expect and thatís a good thing. It allows the honey to take center stage. But dat raspberry doe...

Great sour raspberry on the nose. Taste follows suit though just a bit sour, more sweet.

The Raspberries taste like raspberries... I 3enjoy this quite a bit, but right now the memory of Schrammís Cranberry is still strong, and all meads will have a hard time living up...

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Small pour with dinner. Pours a rich deep red color with no head. Aroma of raspberries and honey, sugar. Big, fresh raspberry aroma. Flavor is fresh raspberries up front, with sugar and honey on the back end. Thick mouthfeel, burning alcohol towards the finish. Not my style.
