SinH4 (4564) - Garching b. Mnchen, GERMANY - MAY 10, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2017 Bottle, 1000th rating in 2017 - so many thanks to all my friends on and off ratebeer who?ve shared beer with me! Ruby color with small white ring. Aroma is cherries, breakfast honey, violets, flowery, just a bit of hops. Taste is cherries, honey, flowery again, a bit almond, a touch of earthy hops, some green apple. Low carbonation, full mouthfeel, super-balanced with its 6%, again green apple aftertaste. This really is a Kriek Mead - awesome (but I?m not sure if it needs the hops)!

JaBier (7705) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - APR 13, 2017
Sample at B. Nektar on 4/2/17. Pours dark red with a thin pink head. Aroma of hop, cherry and honey. Sweet cherry flavor with a bitter hop finish. Still not loving hopped meads.

JorisPPattyn (9912) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAR 24, 2017
Short-lived pinkish foam; deep cardinal-red liquid. Sour cherries nose, flowery, blossoms, bit lactic acid aroma. Sourish-sweet, cherries. Balance at first outstanding, also thanks to a bit of CO, later swinging towards the sweet side. Bit of four fruit jam, but also real fruit-based. Honey is subdued, in comparison. Medium bodied, very low carbonation. Aftertaste has a soft impression of green apple. Far from bad!! Kriek-mead, great idea!

Bottle shared at The Sweetest Tasting. Clear beautiful ruby red with fizzy pink head. Flowery and soapy on the nose. Potpourri, cherries, light almonds, honey, flowers. Its just lots of fresh sweet cherries with flowery soap. Medium sweet and light sour. Light bodied. The soap doesnt help at all, but I love the cherries in here. Nice color too!
