Bottle. No head (still). Body is light yellow. Aroma is notes of honey, flowers, honeydew melon, insecticide and gasoline, light note of herbs (oregano, etc.). Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, flat carbonation, lightly astringent, moderately alcoholic. The higher alcohols are apparently still an issue at Medovina, as this is seemingly a very new product and bug spray and petrol are clearly evident. The aroma is pleasant otherwise, but it’s hard to ignore the fusels...would probably give a 7 or so for the nose if they weren’t there. The sage is very quiet, just barely detectable, which is admittedly better than being overdone, but a little more sage-y-ness wouldn’t have been a bad thing. Rather syrupy sweet (for this meadery at least, certainly not compared to Polish sugar bombs), but there’s enough acidity to preserve drinkability. All in all ok, it’s just a shame about the fusels.
