On tap at Breakwater, pours a hazy pinkish amber with a small white head. Aroma brings out seltzery notes and artificial raspberries. Flavour brings out sweet cloying raspberries, medicinal notes and subdued honey character. Cheap and inauthentic. Not convincing. 721Lance (82) - Oceanside Ca, California, USA - FEB 13, 2015
Nice sparkling, hibiscus and raspberry flavor and aroma. Somewhat sweet with great balance of dry mead with some sweetness. Excellent slowrunner77 (11930) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 24, 2014
"A thoroughly enjoyable sweet-but-not-cloyingly-so raspberry honey braggot. The hibiscus added another unique dimension to the flavor and a pleasing perfumey aromatic to the nose. No hint of 10%, really." rlgk (18847) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 18, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2015 Draught at the brewpub, Oceanside. Clear redfish/ruby beer with a small offwhite/pinkish head. Raspberry aroma, grassy, floral, hibiscus, strawberries, cherry seeds, caramel, some rhubarb. Sweet raspberry flavor, strawberries, hibiscus, rather sweet but very nice. brokensail (16440) - Dublin, California, USA - MAR 3, 2014
On tap @ Brewbies 2014. Fizzy, pink soda pour with a small white ring of foam. Smells of cherry 7-up, metal, and butter. Quite floral, lots of sugar, and herbs. Flavor is very sweet. Lots of sugary soda type character. Cherry 7-up, mild berry, and butter. Floral, herbal, and metallic. Not enjoyable.

>> Thanks brokensail for the share. Clear pinkish red, low pink head. Nose is popsicle, melted sweet gummies, hibiscus vegetal oddities/tomato. Taste is sticky sweet, all sugar, mild acid, doggy, hibiscus vegetal, beets, sweet cherry. Papery finish. Not so bad.
George’s Bachelor Party September 2013. Big flavor of raspberry seeds more than anything. Odd mead. Who knows how traditional this is. Not bad but nothing I’d order a glass of. Geokkjer (7627) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 13, 2013
On tap at Breakwater. Pours red/pink with a pink head. Aroma of honey, tea, raspberries and some floral notes. Flavor is sweet with some sour raspberry notes and tea. Medium body, average carbonation. yngwie (17038) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 13, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. A pinkish white head over a pinkish red body, unclear. Sweet aroma with flowers, raspberry and some honey. The flavor is a bit sugary sweet, with flowers and raspberry. Full body. Sweet finish with some bitterness. Overall, too sweet, yet kind of refreshing. 130813 Thorhale (1) - - JUL 6, 2013 does not count
I dont think this mead was aged very long.... Didnt care to finish the free sample. I have not taken much interest in rating beers before but this was dissapionting enough to make me start. Not gluten free fyi and so not a true mead. Great staff at the restaurant.
