Not as yummy as the still version, prickliness seems a bit off and makes it feel a tad watery but still amazing fruit flavor overall with sweet tart berries

Pours a beautiful clear purple red color. Slight bit of effervescence there. Aromas of boysenberry, raspberry jam. Slight cherry. Taste is sweet with a refreshing lift from the carbonation. Preferred this one over the still just a bit.

Bottle @ RBWG on the Brewbus. Cheers to whoever shared this! Deep purple. No head. Gentle signs of carbonation. Nose and flavor are very similar to the still version. Jammy dark fruits. Smooth earthy honeycomb. Rich and supple. Enlivened a bit by the soft carbonation. Good stuff.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle... RBWG 2015... This beer rocks!… Pours lightly hazy and crimson with a small, brief, white head. Loads of berries and sweet honey headline the aroma. Full-bodied with a slick mouthfeel and an inkling of carbonation. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly tart, accompanied by big-time berry fruitiness. This is basically the same as the still version, but has far less methanol in the nose. World class mead here!
