Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours a clear red. The nose doesn’t reveal much honey but lots of blackcurrant and a slightly chemical off-note. Medium body, sparkling, a little marzipan, dry and tart berry notes with some sulphur. No real honey notes though. Ends tart and almost astringent. A very unusual Mead. 150311 Pinball (12061) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2011

Sample at Julio’s NE Beer Festival. Todays samples were actually the first meads I have ever tasted so not much to compare to. I liked them much more than expected though. Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 22, 2008
Pours purple with a stray bubble or tow and a nice neck on the glass. Smells of honey and tarte. Tastes tarte with a nice warming alcohol presence and some dry honey on the finish. Another great mead from this apiary. muzzlehatch (4951) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 5, 2007
Sep 17 2007 from 750 ml bottle (City Market, Burlington, Sep 2007). Cork is much fresher and tighter this time; guess the other bottle was just unlucky. Pours a slightly hazy dark violet, still, with slow-subsiding thick legs….lovely, luscious deep fruity nose, black currants strongly present, and a rustic, dark honey scent as well, light hints of unripe grapes and new oak….an elegant mixture of tart and sweet fruits on the tongue, with acid tartness ultimately winning out, quite tannic and woody, sweetness is just light and cuts the harshness at first, dryness comes on strong in the finish…..a bit brash and unrefined, but the overbearing, pungent qualities are excellent for a simple, hearty beverage to go with rustic, gamey foods. Probably my favorite from this meadery overall. Very little honey character overall; this probably would not win points in a homebrew competition, but I enjoyed it a lot for what it is.
