Ungstrup (29207) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2004
The aroma is very sweet with strong notes of flowers, but also alcohol and honey. The color is orange and it has no head. The flavor is quite sweet, but not too much, and it has strong notes of honey but also flowers noticably elderberryflowers. The alcohol runs warming and tickling over the tongue.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2007 (Ceramic bottle 75 cl) Clear, very dark amber. Dark, vinous notes - not unlike port. Distinct sweetness, but the honey notes are not as strong as in other meads. Extremely complex and refined flavour pattern with impressions of dried or even overripe fruit. Lovely warming alcohol. 170605

oh6gdx (20274) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 14, 2012
Bottled (from International Delicatessen, Kastrup Airport). Amber colour, no head. Aroma is honey, strong herbs and spices. Flavour is rather much the same in a quite nice thick form. Rather spicy compared to the other means from Dansk Mjd.

omhper (19306) - Tyres, SWEDEN - FEB 27, 2006
Bottled. Clear amber. Aroma of honey, herbal spices and alcohol. Very sweet, and the smooth warming qualities of Vikingernes Mjd is replaced by burning alcohol and intense sweetness. In the end it tastes more like vodka diluted with honey than anything else. Im not very impressed, even though some of the herbal notes are really nice .

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 25, 2005
Amber color. Aroma of perfume, alcohol, herbs. Sweet and very warming, harmonious flavors; in the end its almost burning. Good.
