COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sweet Melissa is similar to Classic Mead, except that it has more honey and a much sweeter, distinctively honey finish. It is a heavy bodied and heavenly mead - definitely in the dessert category. It has slightly higher acidity than our drier meads; this balances out the sweetness.

Rosebud butternuts (2396) - Denton, Texas, USA - MAY 6, 2009
bottle thanks to bman1113vr. poured light yellow with legs for days. looking up at the glass and staring at the legs reminded me of being a young lad under the monkey bars on the playground as the girls in skirts went overhead. aroma was honey and butter. flavor was pretty much honey for me. reminded me of the honey i put on my sopapillas at the mexican restaurant. this was some great stuff.

BMan1113VR (7820) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 22, 2009
2007 Bottle via a trade with carythedude. Shared with the Dallas crew. Pours with strong sticky legs left as remnants of the clear golden body. Aroma is fusel alcohol at first followed by butterscotch, herbal honey and a bit of earthiness. Taste is strong honey that is both sweet and herbal. It is in no way cloying and somewhat dry (lowish FG for a mead) finish. Medium duration finishing with lots of tannins. Mouthfeel is viscous, but not sticky. Excellent!

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - APR 22, 2009
Bottle. Body-still thin yellow. Nose-alcohol, lots of clover and honey, butterscotch, paint thinner. Taste-excellent, hot, perfect honey sweetness, clover, cinnamon, vanilla Big Red chewing gum, absolutely perfect sweetness. Has the flavor of Jadwiga without the syrupiness. Certainly a masterpiece right here. No shit.

That1Guy (1882) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - MAR 16, 2009
Crushed with Jakebra and Honkeybra. Honey dominates. Alcohol and honey make a weird combination (bandaids) but Iím told itís good. Sweet as hell on the nose, but the flavor is a different monster. Itís a sexy bitch for sure. A badass mead. A lot in here I donít understand, yet I still like it.
