This mead was fermented and aged in an oak barrel for 11 months. It is the off-dry base for these sparkling beauties.

Bottle shared in VT by Alan. Pours lightly hazy golden. Bubbly body with a good bit of carb for a mead, apples, tart fruit, white wine, lemons, and honey are the main tasting notes. Not bad.

Pours a clear yellow. Aroma is honey, apple, and light oak. Flavor is funky and good. The Brett stands out providing a nice tartness which strips the sweetness from the honey, though the honey essence is still there. Light oak notes and hints of vanilla cut through light citrus notes. Its sparkling and light on the tongue. I like the fruited versions better but I am glad this base was bottled to give us a taste of the funky mead in its true form.

Bottle shared by Drew a while back, thanks! (as parlimead funkadelish mothership). Pours a deep gold, sparkling. Nose is soft honey and acidity, floral. The Brett kind of adds an earthiness that would be better off removed. On tasting, medium dry, light sweetness on finish. Honey. Earthy yeast. Okay but fruit makes this so much better.

A very decent mead, not that complex, just a good rounded Brett with lots of honey in the finish. Yellow with some bubbles. Good drinkability.
