Bottle courtesy of StFun, thanks man! Deep red pour, no head. Aromas of honey and currants. Flavor is fresh currant and honey. Awesome balance of tart and sweet! Very light and easy to drink. Sweet, but not too sweet. No trace of that 8% abv either. This is awesome!

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.

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.

Draft pour at the source. Pours a translucent red to purple. The aroma has funky, dry, yeasty notes. Really dry finish.

TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2013 Bottle shared at MuckFest 3 - Saturday Edition. Pours a richly ruby red hue, glowing pink red berry with a good firm haze, mellow glow. Frothy whitish head atop dies to a small ring, minimal lacing. Aromas are clover honey, grass, and gentle black currant. A touch of deeper berry darker, touch of tannin. Sweeter honey and apples. Initial is sweeter, cherries and blackberry. Richer honey, honeycrisp apples, sweetness, mellow life offers sweetness, crisp florals, gentle dryness and linger sweet honey, black currant, touches of raspberry. Simple, yet flavorful. A touch sweet. Solid. Update 7/5/13 @ Brewery: less sweet, more vibrant on tap. Nice blackberry pulpy presence and mellow tartness. Nice body. Gained 2 points
