COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Der Honig-Glühwein ist unsere Spezialität für kalte Winterabende und jetzt ganz neu für Sie in unserem Katlenburger Sortiment. Durch die Vergärung von Bienenhonig machten einst die Germanen Honigwein zu ihrem Nationalgetränk und verherrlichten ihn in Sagen und Liedern. Sie pflegten die Kunst der Herstellung und so wurde der auch als Göttertrunk bezeichnete Met im Laufe der Zeit zu einem Traditionsgetränk. In unserer Katlenburger Fruchtwein-Kellerei produzieren wir bereits seit Jahrzehnten Met Honigwein nach alt überlieferten und ständig verbesserten Rezepturen. Erleben Sie jetzt das heiße Honigwein-Erlebnis mit dem Heißen Met von Katlenburger Dr. Demuth.

fiulijn (14290) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 28, 2010
Chilled, 4-2-6-2-10=24
Blond color. Soapy and spicy aroma, somehow fake; cloves and anise, alcohol. Quite sweet, but not sweet; if ever, the honey flavor would be covered by some spices. Drinkable but fake.

Warm, 5-2-5-2-10=24
The aroma is cut down, just mild alcohol and spices. Sweeter flavor, some honey flavor, medium spiced. Drinkable.
