3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml bottle from the meadery. Pours a still, clear blood orange. Aroma is a heavy fruit blend...earthy and sweet. Taste is tart-raspberry-forward with honey notes through the middle, and a sweet peach finish. Tartness lingers a bit. Medium body. Pretty solid melomel, especially the aroma.

Pours gold red. Aroma is honey soaked raspberries. Flavor is a wonderful raspberry up front. Mildly sweet with light peach beneath. Simple flavor but they really work. Mildly dry in finish. I could sip this one for days.
