tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - NOV 3, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2013 Bottle: crimson red color with deep ruby in the center, only a few small bubbles that disperse quickly after the pour. Aroma is full of some tart cherry juice, light honey sweetness, & another pronounced fruitiness that seems to be something of the "berry" type. Taste is similar, cherry juice hitting up front with very subtle tartness that fades into a honey glazed sweetness. I’m getting faint hints of cranberry as well. Very, very light grassy tone mid-palate from the hop addition. Sweet cherry, delicate finish. Another solid & very drinkable mead from B. Nektar.

On tap at TJs. Poured a ruby'ish color with a small sized pink head. Cherry mead ... billed, at least on the menu, as a sour mead, would like to have more sour and funk, but that is just me.

Maroon color with a bursting aroma of cherries, cough syrup and candy. Flavor is smoothed out by the honey, slight hop concentrate and cherry. Very sour. Full flavored and medium body make it nice to drink. Finish has some tootsie roll, toffee and malt. Complex mead.

Doesn't really taste like a mead to me. Syrupy and sweet with a very red colour. Looks like a ruby port. Would go nicely in a cocktail. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Vom Fass im Muted Horn Berlin 2017-05 getrunken. Ein Met mit Balaton Kirchen also! Hmmm - echt spannend und gefährlich süffig. Die Kirschen gleichen den Honig sehr gut aus, so dass dieser hier nicht süß sondern immer noch leicht sauer daherkommt. Lecker!

Really good. Tasted fresh from the tap at Muted Horn. Cherryred in the glass. In the nose came honey notes. Like a light cherry liquer.

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 (8253) - 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.
