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.

Light golden liquid with tall legs. Honey, and exotic perfumes fill the nose. Lots of floral scents along with light spice of ginger, cloves and cinnamon. Honey fruit and flowers strewn about the place in the flavor. LIghtly warming on the the palate. This does not get thick and sticky, rather stays light and balanced through out. Certainly wouldn’t mind having more of this about. Thanks Tom for sharing.

Pours a clear viscous still pale golden with nice legs. Sweet floral fruity sugary complex honey aroma is verey enticing. Rich, sweet viscous floral clover honey body has a very nice complex flavor and well-balanced sweet and warming alcohol. A very nice mead, but definitely not something I could afford to drink too regularly.

My first mead and I love it! Bottled Oct 2004. Poured a clear pale yellow with small particles afloat. Aromas of honey, orange, and a slight hint of alcohol. Sweet honey flavor with light spices. A great warming dessert drink .A wonderful wine alternative that I’ll probably fool many a friend with. Thanks to Springslicker for introducing this style to me at the Tennessee Tasting!

Bottle with waxed cork. Pours still, clear, pale yellow and sticks to the glass beautifully. The aroma is earthy, sweet honey and a little bit of alcohol. The flavor is very sweet and assertive honey and a very subtle alcohol warmth. This definitely has to be savored; anything more than sipping would be overwhelming. But a very, very good mead.

Big thanks to Tom for sharing. Clear yellow body, no head. Very interesting aroma - pollen, orange peel, sweet honey. Sweet plant stem flavor with smooth, sweet honey. Delicous! Spicy alcohol bite in the finish that really rounds out the flavor.

Flowery aroma: orange blossoms and spice, noticeable alcohol...very complex and strong, strong, strong. Spicey flavor with lots going on so that it blends to an almost medicinal note..but not in a bad way...super sweet and warming. Really full body, with a creamy mouthfeel. Thanks CaptainCougar for sharing this bottle.

Bottle, November 2004, special thanks to CaptainCougar for the opportunity! Poured a still pale golden with some beautiful legs. Very rich and sweet flavor profile with the freshest honeycomb (felt freshly-squeezed!), ripe apples, and hints of a warm spice blend. Thick and most-assuredly coating flavors of the aforementioned honey, apples, and spices... add a tiny bit of caramel. Wow! Edges of the palate found lightly-sour lighter fruit notes. Alcohol provided a mild accent to the flavors, and was warming as this delicious nectar oozed down the throat. This was phenominal!

Transparent and lucid pale yellow in color. Motionless and void of other life. Expressive aroma allures with honey nectar, clover, lilies of the valley and alcohol presence. Hot, exquisite nectar rejoices throughout the mouth. Margarine-like feel lands in the mouth, spreads slowly downward and slowly drips off the tongue. Honey stolen straight from the queen bee is our resplendent booty. Warming alcohol tickles the tongue, nearly stinging, but comes through as more of a seducer. Thick liquid pool exits our playing field, warming with buttery honey. Such a damn tasty treat - thanks for bringing this along, CaptainCougar!

Thanks Tom! The mead pours to a thin light yellow watery color and looks like toxic airplane glue. The aroma is sweet apple honey, interesting floral components like lavendar. The flavor is sweet yellow apples, honey, lavendar, honeysuckle. It’s delicate and balanced. The palate is sweet and sugary, coating and good.
