Corked bottle from Gardian des Elfes, Yverdon, Switzerland

Hazy yellow color, with an old hue. Mild honey and Mead aroma, with some comforting alcohol. Sweet flavor without being syrupy, as promised; some woody trace and mild tannins in the end; less complex than the drier Meads from this Cave, but very pleasant.
