COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This plum Melomel was made with more than 4 pounds of golden plums per gallon of finished mead. Orange blossom honey was chosen to give this mead a nice citrusy feel that compliments the plum flavors nicely. This mead is sweet and is a great after dinner sipper with dessert.

pours a golden color and is still. smells like really nice clean honey and beeswax though not much fruit. taste is a really great honey and beeswax though the fruit is very mild. mouthfeel is smooth and silky. perhaps one of the smoothest b.nektar offerings. overall enjoyable mead but not much fruit.

Mora2000 (5358) - McKinney, Texas, USA - SEP 18, 2011
Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. This was part of an epic 20 mead tasting, made up entirely of meads from Michigan. Pours a yellow-orange color. I don’t get much plum character in the aroma, which is made up nearly entirely of honey. Some plums do come through in the flavor, where honey and alcohol are also present. Medium mouthfeel.

Bottle from bu11zeye. Light pour with no head. Aroma is sweet, flowers, and plum. Taste is really plummy, very sweet, almost candy, and lots of alcohol.

Pours a light golden hue. Aromas of sweet home and mild grape skins. A bit astringent. Flavor is nice sweet honey and summer fruits. Hints of earthiness from the skins perhaps. Mild spice and notes of plums in the finish.
