Pours a nice reddish hue. Aromas of mild berrieS and alcohol. Flavor is loads of sweet berries and light honey. Nice sweet treat. Dessert in a bottle. Liked it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to Kevin (fogdog) for this one. Nose is raspberry and strawberry with a light honey sweetness and alcohol in the background. Pours a seductive pink color that looks awesome. Taste is light alcohol (well hidden but still there) and raspberries and sweet, ripe strawberries. Not overly sweet but not dry either. Great after dinner drink.

From a bottle at the GTMW 2011. Light pinkish red color. Aroma of honey, mild raspberry and some other assorted fruit. Taste of honey, raspberry and mild tannins with some alcohol warming too. Finishes up dry.

Strange that you guys put Mead on a Beer website, but I won’t complain so long as it adds to my total.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Bottle] Pours clear, light red. Aroma isn’t bad, but is kind of strange. Notes of raspberry, but also a herbal, weedy aroma, with some alcohol, and very faint rubber. The aroma improves with time, with the expected honey and rapsberry taking over the longer I let it sit. Taste is a little hot, but not bad, with lots of raspberry blending nicely with the honey. Well done. Decent mouthfeel, long finish. Overall, the aroma is a little lacking, and it isn’t overly complex, but it is still a solid mead.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pour was light ruby with a nice lace. Had on ice. I got much more flavor from the warm sweet mead I had from White Winter. Light but fresh raspberry flavors. Decent but more like a mixed drink. Needs a much bigger honey background.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at the White Winter Winery. Body that reminded me of a French Rose wine. Strong raspberry nose with a similarly strong raspberry taste. Wonderful smoothness without the bite typical of raspberry lambics.
