This is probably the palest of all Polish mead, it pours a pale yellow color, thick, with nice legs on the glass. The aroma is fresh, reminiscent of summer fields, and freshly cut wood; it can be associated to many German meads that use lime tree honey.
Syrupy, very sweet; strong flavor of lime tree honey, with a pleasant herbaceous character, and a light nutty/bitter touch in the final.
Summer in a glass.
Not as complex as other Polish meads, but brewed with the usual skills; direct and elegant.
