Pours an opaque purple. Fruity berry nose with honey. Tastes similar to the nose. Very nice blend of berries, raspberry and blackberry. Really like this mead, but the sparkling version of this really shines. Both are great!

On tap at the CBC. Poured a purple color with almost no head. Nice berries in this. Sure there was honey in there, but for me, thankfully the berries hid it well.

4 oz draft, Copenhagen Brewfest, Boston. Nice violet color. Aroma is off the chain with all kinds of berries.

Flavor is Berry medley. Blackberries, Marionberries, and raspberries. Honey is here but mostly covered by the thick Berry juices. Actually has a nice balance. A play of honey and sweet berries. Also has a fruit wine note. Very, very nice.

ClubGonzo (5416) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 19, 2016
Bottle from Mikkeller & Friends, Copenhagen. First rating in my new flat, and this is a worthy gem to pull from the cellar. :-) Pours a clear but opaque dark purple body. Nose is raspberries, blueberries and dark berries in general (I have no experience with Marion berries but they are probably there), honey, citrus and hints of blackberries, alcohol and grape peel. Taste is tart raspberries, blueberry, near-bitter blackberry tones and other dark berry notes with a pleasant layer of sweet honey in the back. At the end of the palate, near-bitter citrusy notes appear, along with a touch of alcohol. Full to medium body, no carbonation. Lovely stuff, packed with berry flavors and brimming with tartness and a bit of bitter bite to balance the honey. Tasty and easy-going yet with lots of complexity. Very nice.

hackobock (3483) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 20, 2016
August 20, 2016. Bottle at Sweet & Sour, thanks for sharing!
Deep purple with no head. Aroma is very fruity with lots of blackberries, some raspberries, a touch of black currant, sweet honey and vanilla notes. Taste is sweet, fruity and tart. Finish is dry with some berry astringency and a distinct blackberry note, sweet honey and berries, slight floral. Medum to full bodied, oily with a dry finish.

_angst_ (4499) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 20, 2016
Bottle bought @ CBC 2016. Pours extremely deep bluish red leaving some beautiful sticky legs on the glass with a swirl. Smell is heavy fruity and floral with complex dark honey, blackberries, bilberries, caramel, bees wax, hay, chocolate, vanilla and hints of alcohol. Taste is slightly sweet, sour, heavy fruity and slightly floral. Mouthfeel is round, oily, heavy tart, tiny astringent, tiny boozy and near full bodied. Finish is slightly sweet, sour and heavy fruity with high quality honey, blackberries, blueberries, lemon juice, hay, lemon zest and hints of alcohol. Insane intense fruit character. Reminds me a lot of blackberry/blueberry white but definitely drier. Crazy easy to drink and crazy tasty.

This smells very fruity, just like marionberries with some raspberries too. Much tastier fruit mead than the cherry or blackberry. Very very good.
