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!

Bottle: The aroma consists of huge berries (mostly raspberry) with some light-moderate red wine, alcohol, and a touch of honey. Itís pours a still dark red with no head. The flavor starts with moderate berries. The finish has moderate-heavy red wine, light tartness, and alcohol. Itís medium bodied with no carbonation. Overall, pretty tasty but a little too wine-like for my preferences.

Bottle. Aroma is amazing. Huge jammy raspberries and blueberries along with red wine. Tastes like berries and red wine with some light cardboard. Moderately acidic, low sweetness, moderately dry in the finish. Medium body. I could see some people absolutely loving this. I prefer my meads sweeter but this is still great. Tastes like a mead/wine combo to me and Iím not much of a wine person.

Bottle shared by Jeff, thanks! Pours a very dark purple with no head whatsoever. Aroma is full of dark slightly tart berries with a dry honey note supporting. Flavor has a great tart dark berry note that is slightly sweet and supported by a dry honey note.

Dark purple color. Aroma has a little honey and lightly tart berry. Intense flavor. Sour raspberry and blackberry, but some sugar underneath that. Full flavored, and I find the palate to be thick. Excellent.

Bottle shared by Jeff - thanks! Wowzers, this is amazing! Rich oily dark purple pour. Really rich aroma and taste of berry, sweet yet dry in the finish. Killer.

Deep burgundy, ruby wine, blood red body. Still appearance. Honey, berries, red wine. The flavor is phenomenal. Yikes! Juicy berries and honey melt on the palate. Insanely delicious flavor. I canít emphasize enough how delicious this is. Stunning.

Bottle. Pours deep purple with red hues. Aroma of fresh berries, blueberry, sweet dessert. Taste is very rich, lots of berry, full bodied, sweet but not overly. Overall, the best mead that I have had. Very delicious.
