COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional non effervescent mead. Made with 100% Michigan raw star thistle honey. The flavor is delicate, light, and fruity, with strong aromas of sweet fruit and honey. This is a fuller bodied mead, yet it finishes semi-dry with fruit tartness coming through in the finish.

Bottle: Smells like apple cider. Pours a transparent amber with no head. Very vinuous. Apple, honey, fruit, and grape. Don’t really get any berry flavor. More wine-like than any other mead I’ve had. Light tartness comes in the finish. Maybe a touch of blueberry in the aftertaste. A tad too wine-like for me.

Stiil, tons of floaties, amber with orange hues. Sweet honey with light blueberry aroma. The flavor is sweet honey with fruity tartness. Improves greatly as it warms. Very dry attentuated mouthfeel, more watery than syrupy Very intersting and good stuff. Though I am not an expert with meads.

From a bottle at the brewery. Nice amber to orange colored mead (melomel). Seemed like there was a little hint of carbonation but no head. Sweet honey/fruit and uric acid aroma. Pleasant honey flavors with a touch of alcohol being present also. Not fruit dominant at all. Tartness from the berries is present towards the finish. Very pleasant sipping drink as it warms slightly.

Bottle @ Kuhnhenn. Pours a light blueberry pulp color (which if you’ve seen blueberry pulp, it’s not blue, it’s a yellowish-pale gold sort of color). No head, light haze. Aroma of sweet berries cut with some alcohol. Perfume-like notes arise as well. Palate is very well done, with a wonderful balance between honey, fruit and dry alcohol. In the end, the fruit is somewhat dominant, but not cloying or syrupy. There is a bit of yeastiness on the end and the typical fermented honey alcohol flavor. Still, you wouldnt know this stuff is 13 percent abv. Deliciously fruity flavors, tart, if somewhat acidic finish.
