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!

jackl (5804) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUL 24, 2015
Bottle @ RBWG on the Brewbus. Cheers to whoever shared this! Deep purplish pour, no head whatsoever. Big boozy legs. Nose is very bright and jammy. Blueberry and raspberry mash. A touch tart. Plenty of sweet honey. Mellow golden apples. Similar flavor. Jammy red fruits. Oily sweet honey. Rich. Smooth. Solid

hopscotch (10082) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 6, 2015
Bottle... RBWG 2015… This looks like a cloudy red wine with flashes of brown and no head. Decent legs. The aroma is super-fruity with a light ration of menthol. Full-bodied with no carbonation. The flavor presents alcohol and tannic bitterness – berry skins – with loads of berry fruitiness, moderate tartness and mild sweetness. Lingering, modestly tart, lightly bitter finish.

Theydon_Bois (12731) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2015
Bottle during RBWG Booze Buse 20/02/15 thanks to whomever supplied this juan. Murky raspberry red with a moderate crimson head. Nose is honey, raspberry syrup, sweet tunes. Taste comprises sweet raspberry jam, blackcurrant, fruit syrup, light honey, Lockets. Full bodied, fine carbonation, light warming booze in the close. Decent enough mead affair.

more of your standard mead, berries and honey. Very enjoyable. Perhaps it was downplayed a little having it right after blue berry white.
