Bottle muled up to Darkness Day by StFun - thanks!! Deep purple pour dark fruit nose with honey. Great taste - lovely balance between the tartness of the fruit and sweetness from the honey. Really nice. queenholly (3623) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - OCT 9, 2013

Tart and sweet with flavors of currant, pomegranate, and honey. Has some earthy notes that bring some interesting complexity.

Sweet. A little tart but not too much. Very sweet but still refreshing. The carbonation helps to mix up the sweetness. DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Sample on tap at the meadery. Mostly clear red / pink color. Virtually no head or lace. Nice black currant nose, honey. Bigger body. Lighter carbonation. Very lightly syrupy. Mostly sweet taste, lightly tart. Kind of spicy. Not really my style, but it’s well-done and I appreciate the creativity

Draft to taster at New Day. Looks good; a transparent ruby red with soft carbonation. Smells solid; honey and currants. Tastes like it smells with a very tart mouthfeel. Not bad, but a bit tart. Tmoney99 (14851) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 28, 2013

Can’t remember who pulled this bottle out at Muckfest III - Pours purple-pink with no head. Sweet honey on the nose, with mellow berry notes. Taste has lots of sweet berries, a bit of apple, white grape, and honey. Not tons of carbonation, but real smooth. Very easy to drink, sweet without being cloying, and pretty refreshing. Very little hint of alcohol. This stuff could get me in trouble.
