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!

Sample as part of a taster flight at the meadery. Dark purple pour. Still. Massive jammy berry nose. Really wonderful nose. Sweet massive berry explosion in the mouth. Sweetness is balanced by the acidity of the berries. Amazing.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft. Dark, thick purple-black. Rich flavors in this one, and they come in waves: intense red wine, vanilla-and-green-apple oakiness in the front; equally intense berry character at the swallow. Bright, moderately tart and tongue-coating. The aroma is jammy, mixing berries with ethanol, soft cocoa and oak. The berry sweetness is kept in check and kept interesting with the Cabernet oakiness. Well done.

750mL swingtop bottle, pours a deep dark mahogany with no head. Nose is rich, with loads of the berries, along with syrupy honey. Flavour is complex and rich as hell, with rich berries, honey, alcohol and treacle. Wow. This is incredible rich and deep. Excellent.

2/20/15. Sampled during RBWG 2015. This is when Jasmin started getting wasted. Purple pour. Jammy grape aroma, hints of berries, minty, mild alcohol kick. Sweet berry and jam flavor, alcohol hidden well, lingering honey. Not bad.

Plenty of sweet honey. Mellow golden apples. Similar flavor. Jammy red fruits. Oily sweet honey. Rich. Smooth. Solid

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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