COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It has very rich specific fragrance due to the addition of raspberries and wild rose to nectar honey.

1 litre of Półtorak style mead contains 720 g of natural honey. By comparison, the Dwojniak style of mead contains 610g/L of honey; the Trojniak contains 420g/L and the Czworniak contains 320g/L.

Półtorak mead matures for several years to achieve full clarity. In time its rich aroma hides a high content of alcohol (16%) and acidity forming the finest liquor there is.

Golden amber color. Flat, no carbonation. Cherries, honey, apricot, hints of wood and Chinese liquor (biajou) tempt the nose. Very well balance, never too sweet or cloying. Alcohol well hidden. A touch syrupy. Very smooth. Lingering sweet honey and cherries in finish. A touch warming. Excellent.

0,75l bottle. Copperbrown, no foam at all. Aroma: Honey, toffee and sweet wine. Taste: Lots of honey, sherrywine, candy and dark fruits. Very full body, oily and sticky texture. Long sweet end. Very tasty mead!

Reynolds314 (2440) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Possibly my favorite mead at the mead fest. I got no rasberries at all which is strange. What I did get was tons of rich maple, raisins, and honey. Just packed with flavor with a thick luxurious mouthfeel. Loved it.

The last few ounces of a bottle thanks to CanIHave4Beers. Super smooth. The alcohol is very well hidden, and what is there just adds character to the raspberry. Very nectar-y.

annunz123 (880) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 2, 2013
Aroma is honey, cherry, raisins, and alcohol. Taste is sweet and mild, with honey, maple, raisins, and some spice (but surprisingly, no raspberries). A little spice, bitterness, and some drying alcohol in the finish. Probably not for everybody, but I thought this was just great.

olsvammel (3552) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 22, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2014 Sample at ÖÖWF. Sweet smell with some brandy. Very sweet taste, fruity with lots of honey. This was like drinking liquid honey or syrup. Very special, I definitely want to drink it again, but a small sample is enough for me. Re-rated at home. It has a boozy smell but the taste is amazing. Sweet with dried fruit and honey.
