Bottle share courtesy of Jeremy. Pours out a medium amber color with slight soap bubble head. Right from the start, you can tell this is going to be good, Aroma hints at the mellow sweetness to come. Taste come son in with full honey flavor and some minor fruity notes. Thick, syrupy body compliments the taste and lingers for a while. Nice!

Bottle brought by Jeremy, thanks a ton! 2008 vintage. Just a wonderful experience. Thick mouthfeel creates the feeling that your mouth has been engulfed with honey and raspberries… it’s so rich and smooth. Absolutely wonderful.

From a ceramic bottle.
Pours still, a deep reddish amber color with a light haze to it.

The aroma is pretty honey forward from the get go, but rich boozy and oaky notes emerge as it opens up. The fruitiness is really very subtle, you don’t miss the raspberry because you know it’s supposed to be there... but I wonder if blindfolded if I would even recognize the particular fruit used in this mead, not really a bad or good thing.... just interesting.

The raspberry character is far more present in the flavor adding fruitiness & tartness to the big sweet honey flavor of the mead. It’s really more akin to a liqueur than say Jadwiga in as much as the alcohol is far more present and warming in this one than in that Mead. The oakiness is also very nice albeit subtle.

I like this, very much... I’m not sure I like it enough to go grab another $40 bottle of it anytime soon... but it is complex & enjoyable and was worth trying at least once.

0.1l ceramic bottle from trade with Eldesmadre. This is near clear in the glass, kind of brown copper or even bronze - red color and it had lots of tiny mind blurring eye floaters. Smells amazing. It just does. I get lots of sour raspberries and wood. The honey sweetness actually really kicks you in the teeth, but it somehow still manages mo feels gentle. Even if it comes almost straight from the fridge it has a warming aura. It physically feels warm on the nose. A lovely strong and nose-cleaning aroma. Lots of raspberries in the flavor also! Oh, my. I’ve never tasted something as intense concentrated and fruity all in once before. You can just hear the teeth’s rotten from all that wonderful sweet honey. This is a sipper in the words full true meaning. Big thanks for getting me this Kuba! Really enjoyed this one! 31.03.2013

Ceramic bottled picked up at Tres Bonne. Pours out a caramel color no head. Awesome honey nose, raspberry, and some light herbal notes. Taste is great thick rich honey and light berries. The mouth fill was all polish Mead thick and rich, not thin like most American meads I have had. This one gives Apis Jadwiga a little run for its money.
