500 ml bottle split three ways. Pour is clear purple with no head or lacings. Nose is sweet with red berries. Taste has red berries, sweetness, some apple juice, honey and a tad to much clove. My least favourite of the B.Nektar "session meads" to date. StoutHead (978) - DENMARK - JUN 23, 2014
Tap. Pours a clear amber colour with a white head. Sweet malty and sugary aroma. Taste is of fruits and berries, bread, honey and spices. Medium body and medium carbonation. Sweet with a dry finish. Too sweet for me. _angst_ (4810) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 20, 2014

Pours deep purple-tinged burgundy into a snifter. White bubbly head with little retention recedes to faint rim. Clove and orange aromas. Soft with clove front to back. Mild blackberry in the lasting finish. wedgie9 (2702) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Tasted on 6/11/14 from a capped 500mL bottle purchased at Bangor Wine and Cheese. Pours clear, very dark ruby red with a thin off-white head that leaves a thin collar. The nose is honeyed with blackberry, a hint of spicy clove, and just a touch of caramelized orange peel. The flavor is nicely dry, with the blackberry, clove, and lightly bitter orange peel all blending nicely with the honey. The body is medium with average, fizzy carbonation and a long finish that encompasses all of the above.

500 ml bottle. Pours a dark ruby colour with a white small head. Aroma is very similar to a gluhwein; clove, cinnamon, sweet berries, spiciness and wet earth. Rich berryish flavour with blackberries, sharp tart citrus, cranberry juice, honey, wood and a huge amount of clove, which sort of numbs your tongue. Medium bodied, soft carbonation and a rich, juicy, spicy finish. Not sure if gluhwein or mead, but I really don’t care. Brilliant. Borup (15127) - Albertslund, DENMARK - MAY 30, 2014
Draught at CBC 2014. Clear dark amber colour with a white head. Aroma and flavour of honey, berries, malt, spice and oak.
