Reddish purplish pour, icewine-like legs. Big time berry in the aroma and taste, honey, sweet buy not at the cloying level. Just exceptional mead. Sammy (12725) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 25, 2017

UPDATED: JUL 22, 2017 Bottle. Pours a clear ruby red, wine coloured beer, no head out carbonation. Aroma of blackberries, raspberries, honey and booze. Flavor is sweet, very dry, tannins, the red fruits overwhelm the honey in a great way. Awesome balance, long, dry sweet aftertaste. Very nice!! arminjewell (9720) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUL 13, 2017
Pour into wine glass at the meadery, dark reddish purple pour, still pour, aroma brought notes of dry berry, cherry, raspberry into some honey, floral, vanilla, tannic notes. Taste was spice, blackberry, cherry into floral and fruity honey, some tannic notes, tart berry comes through finishing dry, slightly leathery.
