Clear mead with a reddish amber color. Short lived pupleish head. Not still but darn close. Sweet honey and berry nose. Honey sweet mead with flavors of tart blueberry and some raspberry popsicle. Nice dry finish. Tastey mead. Thanks to thedm and hotstuff for sharing.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a nice pinot noir hue with a nose of light generic berry, tannis, light blueberry syrup. Taste is pleasant blueberry syrup, oak, honey sweetness. Not too sticky. This wasn’t bad, just wasn’t earth shattering by any means. Wanted more blueberry freshness or pop.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rated on 4-28-2012 at Fort Wayne, IN Gathering (Bottle) This mead pours a small head, very little carbonation and a reddish body. The aroma is sweet, blueberries and honey. The flavor mimics the aroma along with a dry finish. The mouthfeel is soft carbonation and this mead is medium bodied. This is a very good quality brewed mead. It is easy to drink and the 12% ABV is not overpowering in my opinion. This is a mead worth trying and one that I would drink again. It was fun rating this quality mead!

Pours ruby. Aromas of a berry juice lightly tannic. Wonderful blueberry tartness. Hints of raspberry and tannins. Subtle sweetness and a nice drying quality.

Bottle. Pours a deep ruby-violet, minimal head. Nose is berries, flowers, some vinegary notes. Mouth is medium bodied, alcohol forward (and at the back too), sweet, berries, honey notes and some port-ness. A bit too sweet for my liking.

3.4 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
This corked bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy fine to medium sized white colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a uncarbonated transparent light red brown colored body. The aroma was of berry and very sweet. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a biting honey aftertaste. The yummy flavor contained notes of berry and honey. Yes, a mead with a biting finish of honey. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

bottle at Ft Wayne tasting courtesy of thedm and hotstuff - This honey wine has a pleasant honey and blueberry aroma. It tastes sweet with the blueberries apparent but not overpowering. That’s interesting that some raters didn’t think it was sweet at all. I thought quite differently. It finishes a little dry and is a quality mead. Enjoy.
