Pours a darker purple color. Aroma is sweet berries, honey, and cardboard. Taste is papery honey. The black currants are pretty well covered up, actually. Too bad. Not for me.

77ships (4297) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 30, 2012
25 cl. hersluitbare fles gedeeld met zijn drieën als aperitief voor een proeverij met nog genoeg restjes voor nog een keer. Dit spul gaat er prachtig in als aperitief of waarschijnlijk nog beter als dessertwijn. De kleur van dit ziet eruit als een soort combinatie van amber, wijn en braambessen – kristalhelder en compleet plat zonder kraag uiteraard. Er ziet redelijk wat alcohol in de geur maar bij zoiets als dit stoort het niet echt, zwaar gedrenkt in de zoetigheid en boordevol met zwarte bessen, bijna een beetje als zwarte bessen grenadine maar zonder die typische zoetigheid en kleverigheid van dat soort spul, misschien meer als heel zoete zwarte bessen sap, lichte kruiden, jam, pittige alcohol en een tikje walnoot schil als Dylan zegt. Smaak is een prachtige combinatie van zoete honing en echt bakken van zoete zwarte bessen, lichte romige kruiden, ronde wijn karakter, zeer warmend / heet in de keel maar op een aangename manier, lichte zwarte bessen zuigtabletten en toets van hoestsiroop. Mondgevoel is prachtig plat met een romige honingstructuur. Ja ik ben echt wel te vinden voor Mede.

Bottle. Pours clear amber. Pleasant, rich aroma of honey and spices. Sweet, spicy taste of honey. A little oily, layered finish.

Small 25cl bottle - Apis gift pack found at a honey shop in Brussels. Couleur ambrée claire, filament huileux au verre. Arôme présente un bouquet mielleux nettement plus fleuri que la version précédente avec ce côté plus renfermé et une fine effluve de baies. Palais présente une légère variante de Jadwiga avec un profile de bouche que je trouve plus amer tout en gardant un palais doux-sucré. Cette amertume venant probablement des baies. Le tout garde également un fini plus fleuri et terreux. Ici encore, une très belle réussite.

Slight sourish. Palate: Thick body, no carbonation. Sticky. This is great in small amounts, esp. for tasting.

CanIHave4Beers (3351) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - OCT 10, 2012
Pours still, perfectly clear, with a beautiful reddish brown color. The mead coats the glass when swirled and leaves beautiful legs on the glass.

The mead is rich smelling and pungent, certainly some dark fruit, lots of honey, lots of wildflower floral notes, a little tequila, and some spice.

The flavor is very rich, fairly boozy in kind of a warming and spicy way. The honey flavor is very distinct, rich and sweet but this is well complimented by the light acidity from the blackcurrant. The only thing I’ve ever had that compares to something like this is Tokaij which is similar in it’s richness and sweetness, but this is something else entirely.

Pour out of 500 mL bottle, thanks a ton Caleb. Murky brownish black pour with no head, aroma brought big notes of sour fruits, currants, blackberry, some honey, oak, and vanilla come through as well, big and rich. Taste is excellent, has the sweetness from the berry, currants, sour cherry like flavors, mixing with sweet honey, going into nice tannic, slightly tart notes, finishing with a mix of sweet and sour and dry. Tasty, and I almost prefer it in a different way than the Jadwiga.
