Berry white tasting. Bottle 1. Thanks to svartvit for organisizing. Clear deep dark red. Massive tooth crushing sweet raspberries and honey, some suggestion of blackcurrant, blackberries. Super sweet to a point it turns sour around the edges, after which some toasted marshmallow crust and raspberry meringue shows it’s face, to be washed away again in dens fruity sweetness. In the deeper earthy notes I get some of that roasted paprika aroma I often get in red fruited meads. In the meantime the elamel of my teeth screams in horror. Very nice, but a bit too screamy sweet.
