Order it here.

This is a low alcohol carbonated mead intended to appeal to the beer and wine cooler crowd. As far as mead goes, it's mediocre stuff, with not a lot of mead or raspberry flavor and strange off flavors. One bottle was enough for me.

I tried a bottle of this last Mead Day. I was impressed that id didn't have any of the nastiness typically found in commercial beverages that call themselves mead. Free from fusels, sulfites, cloying sweetness & articifial tasting fruit flavors. The problem was it didn't have the good flavors either. There was a fruit aroma & a bland, flabby palate. I think a small acid addition would wake up the flavors and turn this into a decent beverage. If I have it again I'll probably add a few drops of lemon juice. I gave it a six, since they deserve some credit for being free of the commercial mead nastiness.

This was my first Mead so I am a bit partial. That being said, I think that the Raspberry flavor is indeed weak and that the overall honey presence is a bit low too. I have now sampled about 5 more commercial Meads and realize that the Redstone is lacking in flavor as a whole. I liked it enough to buy some though and it inspired me to make my own. The mouth feel is decent but it does have a lingering aftertaste, not bad but certaingly not excellent. Looking at the big picture, it's not bad for commercial but it could use more flavor and aroma. I respect Redstone for actually being a Meadery, not just being a winery that ferments some left over honey.

I havn't had much experience with mead, but I was not impressed with this one. Had difficulty finishing the bottle with help. This being said I have had their Juniper Berry Honey Wine (or whatever its called), and was quite impressed. Check it out. The price is also much more reasonable on the website than what I paid in Boston (Nectar was 24, mountain honey wine was 28).
