Pour out of 375 mL bottle, clear orange red with no head, aroma smells like strawberry smucker’s jam, some vanilla, hints of honey, earth, slight funk, touch of lemon. Taste is a mix of funky strawberry, some slights of berry, lemon, dry and floral notes, hints of earth, almost a minty note, finishing sweet, dry, slight booze burn.
Bottle @ The Greenwald Residence. Thanks, Jake. Clear orange with kind of a thin body. Smells amazing. Great aroma of strawberry and strawberry jam. Seriously good. The flavor...another story. Tons of medicine and band aids. Kind of smokey too. Gross. Bacterial (3040) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - NOV 21, 2015

2013.01.06 - Drinking to my friend Todd who just died. Cheers. Bottle No 0830610 in small goblet. Pours about as you'd expect, golden with a slight red tint. Almost no carbonation, no head. Aroma is strawberry and almost something else, dry smelling like a wine. Taste is quite nice. Not too sweet. The strawberry jumps out at you, as the rest envelops your tongue and mouth. Little to no alcohol warmth but what there is gets distributed and diluted quite well. For 14% abv this is pretty smooth. Not as much of a honey presence as you'd expect, but a nice balance with the strawberries. I've had better mead but this is nice. j12601 (13034) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - DEC 10, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear gold. Lots of strawberry on the nose, a bit of straw and old honey. Medium bodied, a bit of a weird plastic and phenol tinged flavor. Dirty strawberry water. Not my favorite from them.
