koleminer20 (3348) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - DEC 19, 2015
On draft at the Winter Solstice 2015. The pour is a nice deep ruby with a little hint of orange in it. There is no head, and inherently, no lace. The aroma is sweet cherry syrup. There is a distinct melomel sweetness and then a light tart cherry takes over. The flavor is good. It's a little melomel dominated. I wish there were more cherry in it, but it's good. I like how it's not overly dry, but it's not overly sweet. There is a nice balance, but the mouth feel is a little sweet and sticky. It's thicker than I was expecting. The aftertaste is lightly syrupy and carries a little sweet cherry. Not bad at all ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Leighton (20813) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2015
Bottle shared late-nite at RBWG 2014 - Asheville. Cheers! Pours clear pink with a bubbly white head. The nose holds tart berries and rich honey. Big sweet flavour with light dry honey, berries. Full bodied, soft. Rich finish, with further sugary honey thats cut pleasantly by berry tartness. Delicious.
