COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sweet Melissa is similar to Classic Mead, except that it has more honey and a much sweeter, distinctively honey finish. It is a heavy bodied and heavenly mead - definitely in the dessert category. It has slightly higher acidity than our drier meads; this balances out the sweetness.

Bottle. Body-still thin yellow. Nose-alcohol, lots of clover and honey, butterscotch, paint thinner. Taste-excellent, hot, perfect honey sweetness, clover, cinnamon, vanilla Big Red chewing gum, absolutely perfect sweetness. Has the flavor of Jadwiga without the syrupiness. Certainly a masterpiece right here. No shit.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2016 Smell is booze and honey. Taste is insanely rich honey with the perfect amount of sweetness. Full body.

375 ml bottle thanks to Willrunforbeer. Crystal clear, almost look like water! No really it does. Aroma is orange blossom honey, apples and subtle wood. The flavor is a nice sweet honey that never gets cloying. Almost a floral wildflower / dandelion note going on here with light vanilla. Pretty nice sipper.

light yellow. no head obviously thanks Brian for sharing. Very light aroma, sweet vanilla cake and icing with green apples. This is actually quite savory, complex, vanilla, juicy with an orange skin finish. really nice.

umich03jm (3466) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - AUG 19, 2015
Bottle thanks to Doodler! Aroma is musty honey, flowers, vanilla, white grapes, and a hint of alcohol. Taste has strong wood and flowers, some grapes and pear, honey and vanilla linger. Alcohol is noticeable as well. Good mead but nothing to make it memorable really. Was expecting a little more.
