3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pours clear copper and has a headless beer like appearance. The aroma has big sweet honey and mild other nuances I can’t describe rolling into a bit of chemical heat. Maybe it is something like earthy sugars, hmm. The taste is crystal sweet honey and gets into slickness and a few other notes that, like the aroma, I can’t really put my finger on but adds pleasing depth and uniqueness to the experience.

Amber pour. Aroma of buckwheat pancakes, honey, light oaky notes...interesting. Flavor is sweet, and reminds me a lot of waffles or pancakes.

Thanks to MeadMe for the share. Pours a still orange amber with some nice legs. Nose is somewhat thick with earthy honey and some mild fruit/ (plum?) flavor combined with the bounteous buckwheat honey. Flavor is similar with buckwheat honey shining here and giving off earthy honey, vague hints of fruit, and some mild booze. Very nice mead.

Love me some buckwheat honey and this mead really let’s the buckwheat shine. Pours a nice rich amber color of brown, nice and thick looking in the glass. Aromas of earthy honey, with a touch of alcohol. Wonderful flavors here. Toffee, caramel, maple and honey comb. Subtle fruit with a touch of spice. Has the bready malty flavor that I get from buckwheat honey. Really really nice. Full in body, rich, and sweet.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Corked 37.5cl bottle at Papsø’s
Hazy deep blond color. Although the French often use buckwheat honey for Mead, this one has the most evident aroma of buckwheat, and honey; breadish, rustic, but very interesting. Very sweet, but not syrupy; and the sweetness is cut by the strong alcohol feeling; in the front there is also some light acidity and very light carbonation; the honey flavor is clear, as evident are, once again, its roots; there is a very light bitterness in the final, that in a buckwheat Mead doesn’t disturb as in other more floral ones; and the alcohol warms the mouth. Nice, sharp, peculiar.
