Not huge cherry fan at all but this was insanely good...I desperately want to try the Reserve now. This is all about the fruit and the honey subtly complements the cherry well...outstanding stuff!

375 mL bottle. Deep red body. Smells of fresh dark cherries and honey. Just a little bit of acidity. Tastes just about the same. Sweet dark cherries up front. Cherries do become acidic and a little sour. Tingly, acidic, and sweet. Heavy but dangerous at 14%. I donít remember the Reserve version, but this is delicious if only one-flavored.

Poured a nice dark red color, still. Aroma was big cherry pie and cinnamon, just very lightly medicinal. Flavor similar, sweet, insane cherry. Great.

Sampled at Vintage Estate this mead poured a very dark red color. The aroma was tangy and sweetish with cinnamon and cherry pie filling. The flavor was cinnamon, cherry pie filing, yeast and cracker. Very long finish. Full bodied. Marvelous

Refrigerated 375 ml bottle from FlandersNed poured into a snifter. Dark red, medium body, aroma is tart cherries. Taste is slightly tart cherries, semisweet honey, a little oak, and hints of booze.

Bottle shared with koleminer20, Gus, and others at the Beernanza. Aroma is wonderful, candy cherries, sweet but not so sweet, booze, lovely. Appearance is dark red, syrupy. Taste is amazing. Tons of cherry, a wine booze, wonderful. Mouthfeel is syrupy, tons of cherry and booze in the aftertaste. Overall, man this is good.

Flat out phenomenal mead. Dark cherry color and nose. Cherry juice taste with hints of vanilla and honey. Does not come off as cough syrup in the least (which I was initially afraid of). If you are a mess fan, seek this out. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thank you Dan for sharing. Holy wow this is next level mead shit. So much cherry. Pours a deep reddish purple. Still. Aromas are huge cherry. Unfortunately the cherry and alcohol aroma combo reminds me of cough syrup or ludens cough drops. Not off putting though. Taste is sweet with a bit of alcohol heat. The fruit that is in this mead is just amazing. Medium body. Great sipper.
