Bottle. Poured a red raspberry color with no head. Lots of nice raspberries (one of my favorite to use in beers and meads). Jammy and some honey. Nice for a mead for sure. As much as I dislike meads, this makes me like them. ClarkVV (6825) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 28, 2017

Bright, yet deep, blood-red-raspberry with violet tinges, a touch of pectin-like haze perhaps.
Bright, vivacious raspberry fruit straddles the line between jammy and more refined, but it’s certainly jam-packed with aromatics, however you see it. A touch of waxen character and tons of black pepper phenol on the finish but otherwise clean with no booziness. Rich, intense, fully fruit-forward and yet with a nicely balancing acidity.
Rich and velvety in the mouth with well-fermented, deeper, more acidic and peppery juice notes mixing with soft, rich, vanilla-accented honey. Lovely acidity coats the back of the teeth, on the finish and the mead is nicely balanced, though very rich and intense. Alcohol is low and the mead is clean.
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2017 Bottle. Pours a clear light ruby red beer without any head on top. Aroma of raspberries, honey and booze. Flavor is very, very sweet, lots of dry raspberries, alcohol is very well hidden, the mouthfeel is dry compared to the heavy alcohol. Nice, strong and light complex. Very decent. sneakychi (77) - SWEDEN - JUL 3, 2017
Honey, sweetness, raspberries, slighty boozy. Acidity from the berries balance out the sweetness, almost a slight bitter twang which also helps mellow out the sweet honey tones. Looks great in the glass. Medium body. Very enjoyable! Homer321 (5143) - Melboring, Florida, USA - JUN 17, 2017

Partagée chez Yannick. Liqueur translucide et presque rose. Un dirais un jus pour enfant - celui que j’avais l’habitude d’acheter chez Perrette qui était vendu dans un sac transparent dans lequel je plantais une paille. Aucune bulle, aucune mousse. Ça, on s’y attendait. Arômes très fruitées orientées sur la framboise et le miel. Ça sent même les popsycle 3 couleurs sur bâton. Je dois avoir un moment de nostalgie moi là. Sirupeux, très sucré, mielleux et fruité à fond, ça se boit tout de même très aisément! Dogbrick (13410) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 22, 2016
This Melomel pours a dark red color with a minimal head and sticky legs on the glass. Aroma of raspberries and honey. Full-bodied with a sweet-tart raspberry character and notes of floral honey and toffee in the background. The finish is fruity with a raspberry jam aftertaste. Very good all around.
