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!

750ml fliptop, tasted on RBWG gathering. Hazy dark red color. Minimal ring of white head. Good berry, homey flaor. Moderate sweet taste, light bit of tart. Bigger body, kind of slick. Essentially, the exact same as the still version, but with a light bit of carbonation. Slightly easier drinking maybe, with that. Solid
