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.

BMan1113VR (7905) - 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.

Crushed with Jakebra and CaryTheDude. Thanks guys for hooking me up! Sweet, mellow honey aroma with flowers and alcohol. Very sweet and clovey flavor. As TheDude said, it’s badass. Really cool to drink.

Crushed with Jakebra and Honkeybra. Honey dominates. Alcohol and honey make a weird combination (bandaids) but I’m told it’s good. Sweet as hell on the nose, but the flavor is a different monster. It’s a sexy bitch for sure. A badass mead. A lot in here I don’t understand, yet I still like it.

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 8, 2009
Bottle I think shared by Jimmack? Pours a clear syrupy gold with some thick legs. Aroma is melon, honey, flowery, cantaloupe, sweet apple and slight citrus, cidery, and a touch green apple acetaldehyde. Flavor is spiced apple pie, sugary honey sweet, floral, roses and otehr flowers- hibiscus? fruity with more melon and green raisin- and slight spicebox in the end. Smooth syrupy and sweet. Great.

CheesedMan (555) - Saint Cloud, Florida, USA - FEB 2, 2009
Big thanks to JMFG!!! Pours a light, golden yellow. The aroma is as amazing as I had hoped it would be. Insanely floral, with some spicy back notes. The flavor is spot on perfect for me, with the spice notes playing a great foil to the rich honey. Absolutely stunning.

Hazy light yellow color, no head. Fantastic aroma of crushed flowers, white pepper, vanilla, grass, perfume. Nice spice component creates a buzz on the tongue, the floral component comes through well on the taste. Probably my favorite mead now.
