Bottle thanks to mora2000. Pours with a clear, nearly bourbon hued body, a few scant bubbles, some gnarly legs. Aromas are of waxy honey, very floral, tart cranberry, biscuit, quite tart, mild ester. Flavors are ocean breeze cranberry cocktail. Not cloying, but slightly sweet balanced by tannin and acidity from the cranberry. Really well balanced actually. Surprising. Slightly jammy and floral. Full bodied, medium sweet. Really nice to be honest, Great balance.
Sampled at RBSG. Copper gold. A nice pleasant subtle aroma. Berry and honey work so well here. The honey is just good. This is so nice. I just looked at the ABV and am stunned. No hint of it. Dangerous stuff. brystmar (1314) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 27, 2013
Soft ruby hue, nice legs on the pour. Aroma of sweet strawberry initially; turns to freshly crushed cranberries, peels and all. Bitter aroma from the fruit skins shines through. Yeah! Experiment_Ale (1098) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Honey sweetness up front, pure fruit in the middle, a kiss of booze at the back. Red apples, cranberries, impeccable balance. This is excellent.
At Thomas’. aroma is apple, sweet musky Chardonnay, some grapes and cranberry. Taste is nice savory apple Chardonnay. Errl (2442) - Plano, Texas, USA - AUG 21, 2013

Pinkish-red color. The aroma is very nice with some tart cranberry notes. The flavor is also very nice. I get some sweet, viscous honey notes as well as some tart, juicy cranberries. Great Texas-made mead.
