Bottle received in trade. Deep purple, almost black, pour. Thick berry nose with streaks of vanilla, bubblegum & honey. Light minerality. Sweet, sour & heavy fruity. Round, heavy tart, tiny dry, very tiny sparkling & tiny boozy mouthfeel. Great stuff but I'm not sure it should have any carbonation! cgarvieuk (26717) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 18, 2017

Smells like red wine. Taste has some red wine tannic notes, along with tart cherry and some honey sweetness. A slight bit buttery, but not so much as to ruin it. Overall a solid melomel. BuckeyeBoy (9325) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 19, 2017

Pours an evil deep Berry purple. Aroma is dark and rich. Deep earthy Berry. Flavor is holy shit good. Loads of black and raspberry. Tart with waves of currant. Hints of honey sweetness perks through but this really about the Berry. Medium in body drys out in finish. Love love love this one. jcartamdg (3539) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2017
