wedgie9 (2703) - 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. Not a mead fan, but got this in a blind assortment pack, so here goes. Clear purple liquid. Bubbly pink head disapates quickly. Berry fruit nose. Sweet berry flavor hints at orange, though clove seems barely noticeable. Sweet and juicy with light carbonation. Slightly tart finish.

February 23rd, 2015 - Here at Rip Current they serve beer, but my neighbor is sipping on a guest tap mead, so of course, I manufacture another review. From B. Nektar, this is a blackberry flavored mead, with a lovely pomegranate color and largely clear to the eye. With a cherry heavy nose it might seem like a cherry flavored mead, but blackberry mingles in there with equal strength. The cherry flavor extends to the taste, dominating the blackberry, but letting it appear here and there. I also catch some clove on the mid-to-late taste.

Backlong entry. This beer is close to style with typical flavors. Well rounded and clean. Nothing too outstanding or unusual.

On tap. Pours a crystal clear dark ruby red, with a bright white head that stays around the edge of the glass. Almost zero aroma. But wow, what a wonderful taste and palate. Smooth as silk. Slightly sweet and sour. Cherries, apricots, and pear. Dayum. Tasty mead!!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle thanks to Bryan I think. Pours a reddish orange color with a small bubble head. A big apple and berry nose. Spicy notes dominate, I guess this is clove, smooth sweet apples, light berries. Quite nice.

60minuteman (1765) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 17, 2017
Bottle. Clear ruby color no head. Smells like a Djarum. Clove, honey, berry and pepper. Tastes like a clove, honey, heat and a little sour. Syrupy but pretty smooth.
