Orange in color, clear. Brown sugar and honey aroma, very syrupy-rich essence hits your right away. Flowery, brown-sugary sweet and light molasses flavor, some orange-blossom honey. Lightly thick, coating palate. Nice sipping mead.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear bronze with no head. The aroma has roasted honey, slick abv warmth and some rubbing alcohol. Medium / full velvety smooth body. The taste starts with smooth nectarine and honey along with some white grapes. The finish is sharper and has more of a vineous flavor with light warmth. This is an enjoyable mead that goes down exceptionally easy for the high alcohol content. Recommended.

Seems thicker than other meads that I’ve had thus far. Nice, deep golden amber body. The aroma’s honey sweet with wood, nuts, and apples blended in. Same with the flavor, although the alocohol presence is more pronounced. Sticky sweet finish. Not too shabby.

Sampled at Polish Fest in Milwaukee. The mead pours to a pancake syrup colored body. The aroma is interesting. I swear it smells like port wine mixed with sweet honey. The flavor is sweet port wine-ish with hints of oak and honey. The palate is sweet, sticky, interesting.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Uncorking releases a pleasant scent of apples before a deep copper/whisky colored pour. Alcohol features prominently as brandy in the aroma with additional Bit O’ Honey and wooden notes. Flavor is somewhat harsh, with peaty bitterness in accompaniment to the alcohol... yet it is enriched with the fruity sweetness of honey-apple. Lightly syruped in body but thinner than I would truly enjoy. Mildly burning to the gullet further showcasing some rough edges. A bit unrefined, but still well worth the price.

Fort Wayne Mead Tasting. This bottled mead poured a small almost non-existent head of clear fine to large sized bubbles that left behind a dark brown transparent uncarbonated body. The aroma was very nice with a strong malt caramel honey note. The flavor was also very strong with honey and other unnoted flavors that were well balanced and made the mead very good over all. An excellent mead that is well recommended.

Dark reddish brown. Nose is sweet with honey and floral notes and a little whiff of cognac. Medium bodied and definitely quite sweet. Some fruity notes, cherry maybe and a hint of spice. A solid Polish mead.

At the Ft. Wayne Mead tasting. Thanks to hotstuff and thedm for sharing several meads. This Lednicki is a delicious liquid. Still out of the bottle with a redish amber color. Nose of floral honey, leather and decaying wood. Honey mouthfeel with stone fruit sweetness, and a sherry alcohol sense to it. Definitely my favorite of the night, but still not as good as the Apis Jadwiga.

Fort Wayne Mead Tasting. The final mead of the nite. Red in color with no head but that was expected. A wonderful vanilla and honey aroma. Honey taste with hints of vanilla and fruits. Wow, this was really tasty. Them Polish people sure do make a mean mead.
