3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. 100th mead rating. Pours pinkish red. Nose/taste of intense honey and florals, which I assume are hibiscus and some red currants. Medium body. Very flavorful and concentrated.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle donated by Wild Blossom at HOPS Oktoberfest. Pours a bright reddish-pink. Nose is very floral, tart hibiscus notes, jamaica with some floral honey. On tasting, the acidity from the hibiscus is in unison with the soft acidity of the fermentation. Mild honey, dry finish. Nice mead.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample from a bottle brought by RAYBOY01 to the latest Flossmoor Station mug club tapping: It had a clear scarlet body, very striking. The aroma was red berries, honey, and floral scents that I must assume were hibiscus, unless the mead was jokingly made. It was sweet to drink, but not overbearingly so. The flavor was a berry-like fruitiness with a dash of honey and a hint of hibiscus bitterness. Very tasty stuff.
