Product details

Take a refreshing mead, infuse it with the power of an M-80 filled with ripe Bing, Lambert and Royal Anne cherries and watch the sparks fly. Clover honey explodes with semi-sweet, bright fruit flavor through a brilliant, sparkling red pint that can run circles around a Shirley Temple. Well-balanced, the 7.5% ABV finishes dry with an extra bang from champagne-like effervescence. Fit for any season, Cherry Bomb goes down as easy as a summer spritzer yet offers warmth in the waning days of early autumn.

Recipe kit yields 5 gallons.

Aroma: Mild honey sweetness in the backround, cherry aromas are most prevalent.
Appearance: Brilliant clarity with a deep red/maroon hue from the cherries.  Very short lived head when poured - highly carbonated.
Flavor: Semi-dry, very faint sweetness.  Medium to high sweet cherry flavor is dominant flavor. Slight bite to the finish from high carbonation.  Not too sweet, well balanced.  No alcohol warmth.
Mouthfeel: Light body with high carbonation.  No astringency.
Overall Impression: Enjoyable balance of delicate honey flavors, a slight sweetness, and pleasant cherry notes.

This Cherry Bomb bombed!

This was my first and ONLY attempt to make mead. It was marked down and purchased at a time an additional discount, so it was reasonably priced.

I did follow directions to the letter, but the result was non-drinkable. Not 'tart', but as sour as lemon juice.

After tasting, I chucked the whole batch to recover the bottles.

Favorite Mead

First time trying mead, and it's awesome. I went to a mead tasting and disliked pretty much every one of them. So, I'll just stick to Cherry Bomb.

No cherry to this Bomb

I tend to be somewhat loose when I follow recipes. However, not having much experience with mead, I followed this one to the exact letter. I was very disappointed when, after several months of bottle finishing, the result was nothing like what I had hoped for. A rather dry, reddish/pink mead with no recognizable cherry flavor at all. To bad.
