4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
My first mead experience. Deep amber color, clear. Complex aroma very similar to port, with butterscotch, flowers, berries. The taste is primarily honey, extremely sweet with hint of metallic in the finish. Even before I read the description I picked out the rose flavor. Alcohol is almost imperceptible. I think by its nature it would be difficult to drink more than a few ounces at a time, and it produced massive cravings for water. With that, and having tried no other meads to date, I would say that it’s hard to imagine much better than this from a mead. (Bottle purchased at Julio’s).

Piękna bursztynowa barwa. Wyraźny aromat miodu, kwiatów, malin. Konsystencja bardzo lepka. W smaku słodycz miodu, maliny, rodzynki. Alkohol bardzo dobrze ukryty, fajnie rozgrzewa przełyk.

This an absolutely beautiful reddish brown color. And it only gets better from there. A wonderful honey flavor but without being sweet really at all. Smooth and delicious, a friend’s mother brought this from Poland. Had with her home-cooked Polish dinner. Fantastic. I’m really debating giving this a perfect score.

Big thanks to Leighton for this. Dark reddy brown, slightly hazy, no head at all, legs on the glass. Aroma is very sweet and musty, lots of pungent honey, slightly sour. Body is medium to full, smooth, rich, no carbonation. Taste is sweet honey, tangy, a little salty seaweed, card, maybe clove? Nice.
