I should apparently be hugely indebted to Matt for this whale share! Pours clear burgundy, no head or lacing. Aroma is berries, loads of tart cherry, honey of course. Flavor is pretty darn sweet, huge tart cherry presence honey, a hint of tartness from the cherries. Medium body. Good chit. _angst_ (5018) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 2, 2017
Batch 1 bottle courtesy of tkrjukoff. Pours deep bluish ruby red leaving some beautiful legs in the glass. Smell is intense and fruity with honey, sour cherries, lime juice, almond milk, moist soil, moss, dried pine needles, alcohol and lemon zest. Taste is sweet, sour, heavy fruity and tiny earthy. Mouthfeel is viscous, oily, round, tart, slightly boozy and near full bodied. Finish is sweet and sour with honey, sour cherries, miss, dried pine needles, bees wax, hay, alcohol and lemon peal. Amazing fruited mead. Simple but just so damn spot on its hard to beat. Tartness and sweetness in intense perfect harmony!hackobock (4073) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 29, 2017
Re-rate! Batch 2 bottle received in trade. Thank you tectactoe! Cellared since receiving it some years ago. Insane sour cherry character with plenty of leathery depth. One of the absolute best melomels I’ve ever had the pleasure of drinking.
April 29, 2017. Bottle at Schramm’s Balcony Bonanza (indoor edition). markextrae (4791) - Alingsås, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - APR 29, 2017
Dark purple with very nice oily legs. Aroma is fruity and vinous, sweet juicy cherries, some almond notes, light herbal and floral honey, a hint of candied orange.
Taste is sweet, tart, fruity and vinous. Medium to full boided, oily texture. Slightly dry tart vinous finish yet smooth, cherry skins and sweet juicy cherries.
Amazing, vinous and very soft honey profile.
Bottle shared at schramm’s balcony bonanza. Side by Side with regular statement. 2nd batch, Nose is less sweet compared to statement, light tart cherries, fine red wine like, light almond, cherry pit, more balanced, less of the honey sweetness. Light oak sweetness, amazing bodied. Just when you thought a cherry mead couldn’t get any better as statement AdmiralVernon (1200) - SWEDEN - APR 29, 2017

2014 bottle. Thanks Masterski. Reddish like cherry juice. Amazing cherry aroma. Lovely smooth. A top mead. Delicious. darkguardian (733) - Florida, USA - JUL 25, 2016
Gorgeous deep red pour, nose is intense wine like fruit flavor with mostly cherry but also some black raspberry, delicate honey aroma. Flavor is extremely full and intense. Juicy cherry and mixed berry with a lingering Honey finish. Truly a first class honey wine. Thanks for sharing, you know who you are! ctipping (2907) - Florida, USA - JUL 25, 2016
375 mL bottle. Pours deep red. Intense cherry. Smells a little bit of red wine. Tastes of rich and lightly acidic cherries. Becomes kinda winey again, but the honey brings it back to mead. Long tart cherry finish. Wonderful fruit flavor tempered by honey. biggsbowler (630) - Port St. Lucie, Florida, USA - JUL 25, 2016
