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.

A light yellow mead - ofcourse with no head. The aroma contains strong notes of alcohol and rosehips, while the flavor is sweet with a subtle presence of honey and rosehips, combined with a slight alcohol burn.

BeerandBlues2 (9431) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - SEP 15, 2008
Bottle. Pours clear light yellow with very little fizzy white head, completely diminishing with no lacing. Aroma is lightly baked sugar cookies, sweet flowers, and light earth notes with honey, vanilla, and cinnamon added. Full bodied, alcoholic texture, flat carbonation, and an astringent finish. Average duration, heavy sweetness, light acidity and bitterness. An elegantly crafted mead with a nice balance; not too sweet.

hopscotch (8847) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 17, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2009 Bottle... RBSG2006... This mead rocks!... Clear, light yellow mead. Honey and perfume aroma with wild Summber herbals interlaced. Sweet and warming. Honey, rich and dark. Light oily mouthfeel. Warm, but not overbearing alcohol. Almost dries out in the end. Thanks to richlikebeer for pointing out the end of the bottle. All the good stuff must sink!

JoeMcPhee (8314) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 2, 2011
Slightly hazy golden pour with a bit of soft sweetness. Light clean honey with a bit of soft honeyed sweetness. Sweet and clean if a little bit simple.

BMan1113VR (7832) - 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!
