Mead at the meadfest, really odd, tons of caraway which isn’t that great. Good base though, boozy

Tasted at Greg’s honey-themed beer gathering, thanks for sharing Vyvvy. It poured a slightly hazy amber colour, still, no foam nor lace. Strong aroma and flavour of honey, floral and earthy with smooth alcoholic heat, some nice herbal and nutty traits from caraway (like freshly-baked pumpernickel bread with honey on it.) Medium body, well-rounded mouthfeel, no carbonation, with a sweet aftertaste. Higher abv percentage than their Viking Blod, but more harmonious, perhaps due to the blended Danish aquavit brandy. Definitely well-crafted and tasty, an awesome historical learning experience, but I still prefer a good beer.

Strong but not hot. Smells honey’ish. Very drinkable. Not dry, not sweet. Pure. Thanks john.

Bottle, 200ml, from the National Museum in Copenhagen. A slightly cloudy golden colour. A room-filling sweet elderflower aroma. Flavour is intensely sweet with honey, tart apple, elderflower. Caraway evident in the finish. A fair alcohol burn. Syrupy mouthfeel. Quite pleasant. While I like both mead and aquavit I’m not a fan of the combination.

Beerenberger (1538) - Fischer, Texas, USA - APR 20, 2014
Aroma of honey with notes of caraway seed. A straw hued pour that tastes of honey and caraway seeds. Strong, sweet, smooth and satisfying. Oh to be a Viking! A great sipper at the end of the day.

degbert (1195) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 28, 2014
Bottle. Pours a medium, hazy gold. Nose has definite caraway and aquavit notes with an underlay of honey. Honey richness, strong and sweet, interplays with strong caraway and liquor notes; this will definitely make your eyebrow hairs stand up and sing the Danish national anthem. Finishes long and hot. Strong and deceptively powerful.

Clear yellow. Has a sweet alcohol smell. Tastes very honey sweet. Good, maybe too sweet.
