Sampled on draft at Vintage Estate this mead poured a dark red-plum color with a medium sized foamy pink head that faded quickly and left minimal lacing. The aroma was cinnamon,nutmeg and clove. The flavor was berries, honey, nutmeg, clove and cinnamon. Long nutmeg and clove finish. Moderately full bodied. Nice. N3lson1 (1010) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - AUG 11, 2016
Throw this in a red wine barrel for a few months! This beer is super delicious, looks amazing. Looks like a deep cranberry juice, with purplish, white fluffy/sticky head. A low abv for a mead, but I could definitely see myself slamming a couple of these back with someone who prefers their wine. AndySnow (8300) - Huddinge, SWEDEN - MAR 24, 2016
How: Bottle.HankDaStank (6) - Indiana, USA - MAR 15, 2016 does not count
Where: Haket, Göteborg.
Appearance: Ruby colour with a small pink head.
Aroma: Blackberries, honey, berries.
Body: Medium to full body, low carbonation.
Flavour: Blackberries, honey, berries, some caramel.
Big clove nose. Very easy drinking with mild carb. Not overly sweet, but the fruit is still present. drjoeng (1461) - SINGAPORE - MAR 5, 2016
Poured out a clear red-pink, the color of a grape cherry-ade.
Nose is vinegary and sweet. Cloying.
Mouthfeel is carbonated. Like drinking sour cherry soda. There is a hint of the syrupy sweetness of honey, but this is fleeting. The overall impression is that of a soda.
Very approachable. Meads are usually unfiltered, cloudy messes of organic aromas, this one certainly is not.
