Blackberry sets this one off, along with the orange. Very nice wish I could get it locally so I could enjoy it whilst at the house...

Pours clear dark red with no head. Aromas of blackberry, raspberries, honey, some orange peel-like notes, pear cider, apples. Taste is about the same with some more vinous notes. Zita (6331) - Assentoft, DENMARK - JAN 24, 2015

Dark red coloured and clear. Has a fine, pink head. Spicy, fruity, berry aroma, sweet too. Flavor starts moderate sweet, more berry notes. Light acid. Creamy texture. TheGDBatPan (23) - Rolling Meadows, Illinois, USA - JAN 14, 2015
If you like mulled red wines, spicy ciders, or strong Chai tea, and have never found a beer that really appealed to you, do yourself a damn favor and splurge on this. You?ll be so glad you did.Side Note: Perfect for Halloween parties and World of Darkness LARPs. This looks like prop blood and tastes a lot better.

Brought this one to Kramers christmas party. Beautiful ruby red color really sets up the amazing aroma. Tons of berries up front with the clove, orange zest and honey sweetness bringing up the rear. Taste is pretty much the same with tons of fresh picked juicy berries and clove dominating with some sugary sweetness rounding it all out. Overall one of the better national releases from these guys. I will have to grab a few more next time. Martinus (4701) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JAN 12, 2015

Deep purple with no head. Aroma is sweet floral honey with blackberries, earthy and cloves. Taste is sweet honey with light tart blackberries and dry clove notes. Finish is light dry cloves with sweet honey and blackberries. Smooth medium bodied, soft carbonation.
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2015 Pours up a purple color with nearly no head. The aroma is cloves with blackberries. The taste, like the aroma, is cloves and blackberries. Full and smooth with soft carbonation. The finish is long and semi-sweet with berries. Very interesting brew. Would be great with pancakes for breakfast. hotstuff (5258) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Rated on 12-28-2014 at 800 Degrees Three Fires (Fort Wayne, IN) This draft mead has a very small tan head that mostly diminished, transparent reddish body and no visible carbonation. The aroma is blackberry, clove, some honey, and sweet. The flavor is blackberry upfront, clove, light honey, and very sweet tasting. The mouthfeel is smooth and lightly thin. This mead is medium bodied. This is a very quaffable mead that is very tasty and worth trying.
