COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A tasteful update to man’s oldest wine. Crafted in the style of a semi-dry wine, Trapper Creek Pure Honey Mead offers the mellowness of honey with a hint of sweetness. Try it by itself or with lighter dishes like fish or fowl. Best served at room temperature or slightly chilled. Made from pure Montana honey.

More similar to a rich dessert wine this is fruity, dense, and hard to finish after a few beers. Perhaps if it were all I opened with dinner I might be able to finish it. As it is drinking more than about a half pint was tough. Thanks to Travlr for sharing.

Aroma / Appearance - Creamy vanilla legs crawl down the sides as you would expect from a high gravity mead. The flat base and transparent golden body release thick waves of honey and creamy alcohol. This is filling just from the nose alone.

Flavor / Palate - Vanilla and honey cling to the corners of the palate. Sticking to the tongue like syrup this is so rich that it is borders on cloying. A vinous finish adds nice depth. Overall though I wish I would have had a vacuum seal to recork it and finish the bottle the next day.

Bottle shared by Travlr. Pours still clear yellow. Aroma is honey, straw and earthy notes. Flavor is medium sweet honey, light spices and a sweet finish. Full body.

Bottle. Crystal clear very pale yellow color. Aroma is very floral, lots of perfume. Taste is also floral, just an edge if sweetness, dryish finish. Tasty.

My first mead! I love honey and honey products so I thought it was about time to give a mead a shot and one that focused on honey. Being my first, I really don’t have anything to compare it to so I tried to rate as fairly as I could. The aroma is a dry, alcohol with the sweet honey notes. Obviously no head or lace but as with a wine, the legs it left on the glass were crazy. Color was a nice, golden hue. The flavor was similar to the aroma. Dry, warming alcohol with honey sweetness. What else would you expect from one listed as "pure honey" mead? Very smooth finish.

750, corked and waxed. Thanks, Adam! These are all really solid. Pours a crystal clear pale god with no head or lace. Mild sweet honey and floral notes, very little to interfere with the presentation of the honey sweetness. Creamy medium body, definitely not thick by mead standards. Floral notes, a little soft touch of balsa wood, and that unmistakable honey quality. Long sweet finish. Really nice.

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2011 750 ml. bottle- Pours clear light golden. Aroma is honey and alcohol. The taste is liquid honey, I don’t know how else to describe it, very palatable and pleasing, there is a mild alcohol burn. Body is medium, the texture coats the mouth. I liked this much better than the choke cherry, I am very interested in trying more mead, the only problem is finding more varieties.

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2008 Wax dipped bottle from Connor, MT. Light golden in color. Fairly strong honey aroma. Somewhat ciderish. Strong honey flavors. Seems to be somewhat spicy. Alcohol is noticeable. Interesting stuff.
