COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kärt barn har många namn. Älggräs, även kallat mjödört, byttogräs, karsöta med mera har vi ångat i byttor och hällt i mjödet innan jäsningen. Troligtvis en vanlig kryddning i mjöd förr i tiden. Trots att det är en relativt liten mängd vi använt, präglar älggräset mjödets karaktär tydligt, och verkar framträda mer ju längre det lagras. Tonerna liknar till viss del fläder, något som gör sig väl i det halvsöta mjödet på Mikael Sundströms honung. Älggräset är plockat kring Rombohöjden av Leif Berglund.

Courtesy of Per
Very pale yellow color. Light aroma of honey, then followed by delicate notes of perfume, flowers, eucalyptus, fruit pie. Semi-dry mouthfeel, with a mineral presence; light and plain mead flavor, with notes of cookies, very light touch of spices and vanilla; the acidity seems to be quite low; in the final there is a pleasant alcohol warmth.
Elegant.
