Chalumeaux (1555) - Middleton, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 31, 2015
The flavor is huge amounts of sweet fruits. Oily texture over the palate, again thinner then I am used to from the Brewer of this mead. Like watered down grapes and berries with sugar.
Poured from bottle thanks Willrunforbeer. Red pour with no head and light lacing. Aromas of fresh berry honey and vanilla. Taste is sweet thin and fruit is muted. Heather_B (256) - New Hampshire, USA - OCT 31, 2015
Looks like watered down Cabernet. Smells like cherry juice. Taste is a bit thin and watery. Light cherry flavor. Not really getting the black raspberry. WillRunForBeer (2652) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 31, 2015

Light reddish pink color out of a 375ML courtesy of Brian. no head (duh). Smells fantastic like a dense red wine with a lot of berries and oak and a little vanilla. Very thin, no density at all, oily, sweet. Raspberry is muted and takes a backseat to sugar, vanilla, wood, wine. tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - APR 6, 2015
