COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
(Sweet). A dessert wine with the luscious taste of plum and rhubarb. This wine is a favourite with our tasting panels and is reminiscent of a light sherry - it perfectly complements any dessert, or can replace it altogether!

Bottle, shared by Papsoe. It’s a very pale mead, rather oily. No head or carbonation. A bit alcoholic on the nose, unclean-ish, but with a fine honey aroma. Too alcoholic flavor too, the honey is in the back. Definitely not my mead, too alcoholic, and too low on honey flavors. 100813

Tasting at Papsø, courtesy of Oakes
Hazy blond color. The aroma, fruity, delicate, reminds me some fruit distillate from Central Europe; ripe plums, fresh. The body is not too strong, but the distillate honey comes through very well; it has limited sweetness, and balanced alcohol presence; the final is rather short. It’s a good crossover between European Plum liquors (find them in Germanic countries, Switzerland and Slavian countries) and lean Mead. Pleasant and elegant.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAY 24, 2010
Pale white wine-like gold and flat. Powerful, peculiar aroma. Resinous. Very dry and woody with cedar at the end. I don’t like the aroma at first but then it grows on me, especially as the flavors start to explain it. The rhubarb really comes out in the body--permeating it. A smack of plum and honey add balance. Has some apply juiciness and attendant pleasant tartness. Quite a unique flavor profile, and don’t mind it at all.

Oakes (12373) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 22, 2010
Slightly hazy straw. Lots of honey on the nose. Woody, with only hints of plum. Hints of rhubarb tartness too, on the tongue. Alcoholic and dryish. Good - perhaps not the finest Middle Mountain blend however.

Clear light to medium yellow color with virtually none head. Aroma is moderate to light heavy honey, fruity honey (maybe the plum and rhubarb), light alcohol. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and light light acidic with a long duration, fruity (maybe the plum and rhubarb), moderate alcohol warm. Body is medium, texture is oily - syrupy, carbonation is soft to flat, finish feel is moderate alcoholic. [20100409]
