4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours an opaque purple. Fruity berry nose with honey. Tastes similar to the nose. Very nice blend of berries, raspberry and blackberry. Really like this mead, but the sparkling version of this really shines. Both are great!
The aroma on this is absolutely decadent. Lots of ripe raspberries and notes of fruit roll-up. This is hard to take away from my nose. Barely transparent ruby-twinged garnet color. Still head. Starts with a nice sweet berry flavoring, before this becomes quite tart with more berry flavors. It’s like the raspberry sweetness then morphs into blackberry tartness. Nice and acidic. The mead here is an afterthought, but provides a very good base for the berries to shine. This is insanely good. j12601 (12000) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 16, 2017

(On tap @ Mikkeller and Friends, CPH, July 5/17) Pours a clear dark purplish-tinged red with no head. Aroma is sweet and fruity, notes of red wine grapes, black currant, blueberry, blackberry, honey. Flavour is sweet but with a definite tart tang to it as well, vinous red dessert wine quality, imbued with notes of black currant, blackberry, black raspberry and blueberry, berry seeds, light tannins, honey, quite rich but the acidic note provides nice balance. Medium full and softly syrupy with no carbonation and a hint of alcohol. Lovely sipper. drfabulous (7948) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - JUN 24, 2017
