Bottle @ Maine Mead Works. Red-purple in color. Get some nice berry notes to it along with grape, currant, and cherry skin. Has a definite fruit skin and tannic quality to it, so comes across as fairly dry. Has a nice touch of acidity as well. Very thin on the tongue. Has a light honey and fruit sweetness. Not bad.

Sampler at meadery. Pours purple. Slight blueberry note on the nose. Hint of blueberry tartness on the tongue. Better than the dry.

Pretty watery for a mead. Smell is fruity. Taste is very lacking in honey and mostly just tastes watery and fruity. daknole (11044) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Clear red/purple pour. Not very good. Drink is like a dry, watery red wine. A bit astringent. Not worth seeking out. Inbreak (5788) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - SEP 9, 2013
