75 cL clear bottle. Pours clear and golden orange with a small, bubbly and shorlived head. Aroma is distinct herbal elderflowery, light spiced and honey sweet and herbal underneath. Sweet honey flavoured with a candy like edlerflower note swept through. Lingering honey and herbal note into the finish. Slowly descending from sweet to dry herbal into the far finish. Light warming alcohol presence.

Ungstrup (30467) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 11, 2010
Bottled. A golden mead. The aroma has notes of honey and some spices. The flavor is sweet with notes of honey and spices, leading to a dry honey finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

Papsoe (25073) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 11, 2010
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Clear deep golden with no head. Distinct aroma of elderflower almost overpowering the honey. Rich but not fat honey accents yet spicy from the elderflower. Warming alcohol in the finish combined with a vague tartness. 110110

oh6gdx (22638) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 16, 2010
Bottled@Yespr. Golden colour, no head. Aroma is honey, elderflowers, juniper and mild alcohol. Flavour is very close to what the aroma was, but also has some spicyness in it.

fiulijn (16428) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 11, 2010
Tasting at Papsø’s
Blond color. The elderflower aroma is delicate and pleasant, not too flowery, sweet, with light honey. Medium-sweet flavor, the honey is difficult to perceive, but there is still a delicate elderflower presence. Balanced and interesting variant.

yngwie (15382) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 12, 2015
Bottle, 35cl. A clear one with an oily pour. Headless and still. It’s quite herbal and spiced on the nose, the elderflower more or less overpowers everything else, even the honey which is normally not easy too hide. It’s full-bodied, lightly warming and oily on the palate, with lots of elderflower in the flavor. Honey sweetness too of course, and some faint citrus peel hints. More on the orange side than the lemon side. Some coffee bean hints too. Long finish. In a strange way the coffee and orange hints makes me think more of Christmas than of spring which I normally connects with elderflower. Anyway, it’s a really wonderful mead. Pity I only have a small bottle. 150712

Dedollewaitor (14648) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 25, 2010
Bottle @ Odense - VV tasting. Pours clear amber with no head. Sweet and strong notes of elderflower, honey and alcohol. Cloying, sticky, sweet and one dimensional. High drinkability because of the freshness the elderflowers delivers!
