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!

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

chinchill (2657) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Looks like slightly effervescent red wine. Exceptional fruit flavor. Very berry, as expected given the 15% berry content. Sweet but not cloying.
