October 13th


As many of you know, I also have a beer review site (here) and so tonight I am bringing you a review of a wonderful beverage that you should consider serving on Halloween night.

This beverage is B. Nektar Meadery Black Fang…Honey Wine with Blackberry, Clove & Orange Zest added.

Commercial description: “A lightly carbonated, semi-sweet mead made with wildflower Honey, blackberry juice, cloves and orange peel.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a reddish pink/purple color with tiny sparkling bubbles on top.
Aroma: Cloves upfront with blackberry, orange and honey.  Like sweet smelling incense.
Taste: Starts sweet with blackberry and honey, a touch of vanilla and then finishes with a very strong clove and orange zest presence.
Overall: I completely enjoyed B. Nektar Meadery Black Fang (as did everyone I had try this the night I reviewed it).  Although the clove presence looms large in this 6% ABV Mead, I loved it.  The touch of orange in the finish really rounds this one out and this is a perfect drink for the month of October and beyond.
I’m glad I bought a few bottles!
