Pours a very dark ruby, almost coagulated blood in color. A small head on a vigorous pour quickly recedes. The nose is of blackberries and light spice (clove). The mouthfeel is light, as it should be, but manages to be smooth and almost slick. The flavor profile is outstanding - complex, but balanced, and bursting in flavor. It begins with a burst of sweet blackberry which rides over a honey sweetness. It then progresses to a bit of tartness over a mild clove. The finish is smooth, yet a bit dry, and leaves you with a lingering flavor that is all encompassing. Outstanding is the only way to describe this 6% sparkling mead.

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2017 Sample draft at Bru Craft. Mostly clear very dark red purple pour. No head. Blackberry aroma. Plums. Acacia berries. Caramel. Heavy and succulent. Flavors are balanced but reads too syrupy sweet.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7161) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2016
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.

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.

Big clove nose. Very easy drinking with mild carb. Not overly sweet, but the fruit is still present.

drjoeng (1044) - SINGAPORE - MAR 5, 2016
6%ABV. Mead. 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.

ChainGangGuy (4860) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - MAR 2, 2016
Sweetish, scantly tart blackberry (but with also a slight cherry vibe going on) and subtle honey tones spiced sensibly with just the right amount of clove and orange zest, for a zippy added citrusy, fruity hint.

Turboninja (601) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 20, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2016 [email protected] Tavern, Cleveland, USA. Light aroma with berries. Deep red/amber color with small artificial white head and clear liquid. Medium, unbalanced taste with cranberry and cinnamon. Light body with low carbonation. Overall, would be a nice Christmas drink, clear and simple, nothing else.

Bottle from Systembolaget (privatimport). Fruity smell with berries and what I thought was cherries. Sweet flowery taste with honey and berries. I now realized it was blackberries I felt. The sweetness felt slightly artificial. Still nice though, I liked it.
