3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a refrigerated bottle into a wine glass. Appearance is a dark red, maybe even purple. The aroma is kinda footy in a Cabernet sort of way with a dark fruit berry presence that makes the footy notes not as big of a deal. Taste is much more enjoyable than the smell. It’s sweet and fruity with the berries playing the starring role. Nice mead for sure. One you could sip on for a long while.
Bottle shared in MV. Pours clear, blood red. Vibrant aroma, lots of berry-laced honey juice. Medium to big sweet flavour with a little boozy warmth, more berries, light tartness, rich honey on the background. Medium to full bodied, just slightly oily. Finishes with a little warmth and a little dryness, some raspberry, light sweet bitterness, some creamy honey. Fun stuff. JefVerstraete (3510) - Oosterzele, BELGIUM - MAR 30, 2016

Bottle at RBBWG 2016 in Antwerpen. Clear, deep red, no head. Sweetish, slightly fruity aroma of caramel, honey, red grapes and hints of vanilla. Sweet, slightly fruity taste of caramel, honey, red grapes and some vanilla, followed by a long, slightly sourish, warming and rather alcoholic finish. Medium to full body, oily mouthfeel. Very nice!

Sampled from bottle @ Ratebeer Belgian Winter Gathering 2016. Nice ruby red amber color, virtually no head. Very nice sweet red fruit influence in the aroma. Taste also has that nice red fruit flavor. Some honey, light alcohol. Very very nice mead. Love this! mcberko (18390) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 31, 2015
Bottle, pours a deep dark burgundy with no head. Nose brings out rich berries, red wine notes and a touch of wild qualities. Flavour is sweet, with rich sweet berries, red wine and lots of booze. Well-balanced and complex. Not having much experience with pyments, I’m not the best judge, but this is very enjoyable. Ferris (16067) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 29, 2015
Bottle - Nice Berry, grape and honey. Purplish brown with no head. Sweet grape, honey, Berry and clover. Really nice and easy drinking, but a bit of a bitter fruit finish.
