COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This captivating mead has the texture and the "mouth feel" of a red wine, together with the taste of honey and a very versatile berry. Perfect for sipping and for complimenting a favorite dessert or a good assertive cheese. One taste reveals why Montana’s early pioneers hankered after Elderberry wine.

750 ml. bottle- Pours a brilliant ruby red to purple. Aroma is berries, perfume, honey. The taste is pretty straight forward, elderberry, honey mostly after the swallow, not too sweet, very smooth, noticeable but not overbearing alcohol presence. Mouthfeel is smooth, creamy, coats the mouth with honey, a little thin. Really easy drinking, not the best Hidden Legend mead I have had, but enjoyable.

750ml bottle brought back from Yellowstone. Clear ruby red with soapy bubbles. Aroma is berries, floral honey and a medicinal scent. Flavor is sweet and acidic berry with lots of alcohol phenols. Fairly dry and still. The phenolic character overwhelms this one, meh.

Pours a rich deep ruby hue. Aromas are big and earthy, woody, and very very floral with hints of berry. The flavor is A bit odd. Raspberry and elderberry up front. Wood and subtle spice. Floral with a strange herby flowery aftertaste that persists. It’s not bad by any means just a bit strange. Gonna cork it and keep revisiting.
