Very good! You can really taste the honey. I like this, but I think the Sunshine Nectar is better Tapped (6) - - MAY 30, 2014 does not count
Light nose typical for a mead. Appearance clear light red color. Sweet flavor of honey with raspberry on finish. Light mouthfeel. No funky aftertaste. Doesn’t have an alcohol flavor like the raspberry mead I brewed. I would drink this again. RooftopRogue (423) - Champaign, Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2006
A good hearty aroma of honey with a mild hint of black raspberry introduce this purple solution. This mead doesn’t produce a head but it does have good lacing. This rich mead is crisp and sweet with a strong taste of honey that grabs the tongue. The finish finds the flavor of black raspberry creeping in as this taste prepares itself to linger a while in the throat. bigbeersrule (115) - USA - FEB 7, 2014
First mead in a can. Nice packaging and great to take along for the girlfriend on camping trips or to the lake. A sweet mead that has good fruit flavor and aroma, lacking some honey aroma and flavor that homebrewed meads seem to have more of but a great commercial example of a fruit mead. blackmurder (236) - Whitaker, Oregon, USA - JAN 15, 2007
On tap at Eugene City Brewery. What a mead! This was simply amazing. I loved the flavor, the way it unfolded so elegantly on my tongue. Very strong honey taste with the raspberry taste definatley present among a gorgeous palate. It sips nicely. The palate is splendid. This mead filled my mouth with joyous textures and a delightful beer-like body. Amazing. The aroma was nothing too great, still, it kept me drinking. The appearance is shocking. It looks beautiful. Try this one out, you might like it. I am definatley a fan.

While I’m not a fan of fruity beers, I realize that mead falls into a different category. Bottle was a gift. Very sweet, fruity aroma, mostly honey and raspberry (no surprises there.) Ruby red in color, no head. No a sparkler, but a bare hint of effervescence. Sweet, well balanced honey raspberry taste. Alcohol is evident, but not overpowering. Not a huge mead fan, but this was a nice variant that I enjoyed. ajm (1072) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 27, 2008
I remember when I first had this on tap at Pap. It was the same night I tasted Stone 10th (FUH-RESH) for the first time. That night ruled. This is a very light mouthfeel on tap - darker strawberries and very liquid raspberries in the aroma and flavor. Honey tastes purple. Not the world’s most complex beverage. asceticbrewer (69) - Arizona, USA - FEB 26, 2015
Swing top 750ml bottle, poured into snifter. Has a thin white head that fades almost immediately. Color is a deep red tinged with pink. Aroma is honey, with a vague fruity sweetness. Taste is honey, fruity, and slightly spicy, Mouthfeel is very smooth.
