3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at the meadery
Dark ruby color. Seducing nose of blackberry with tones of Merlot; later, some sugar too. Semi-sweet flavor, yet the mouthfeel is quite lean; it has some mead flavor, with pleasant and harmonious berry juice, that provides just the required acidity and light final tartness and astringency. Good balance too.
Another very good offer from Sky River.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear ruby pour. Smell is sweet honey and a faint hint of blackberry. Taste is sweet honey, blackberry comes strong on the tail. Moderate alcohol heat, very heavy/syrupy. Decent.
