Bottle from Oberhof Winery. Thanks, Obihof Kinobi
Pours like a thick pinot grigio but with more bubbles on the top. Aroma is very peculiar nothing like what I would expect from a mead or what I have smelled from other meads. This one has an aroma like a Belgian dubbel or perhaps a tripel I forget which smells like what at the moment. Flavor is very sweet and herbal- kind of like a Ricola with alcohol. Hints of peach, strawberry, and a touch of dark berry are in there somewheres. Finishes with a cinnamon tinge to it. Honey is only really detectable in the mouthfeel, which features a slick, oily texture to it. Overall, this is an intersting mead itís very good, but Iíve had better. But only slightly better. I am drinkiní this one straight outta the fridge. Would like to try it warm someday.

I agree that this is not your typical mead. Your typical mead has much more sweetness, almost a sugary residue, and a distinctly honey taste. This has the requisite viscosity but the honey note is tremendously subdued in favor of a vibrant fruitiness, citrus and floral. I didnít find this to be intensely sweet, either. A ice wine or good German white produces a more intensely sickly sweetness. Beautiful bouquet. Extremely drinkable, attractive, and worthy of drinking. (at The Grapevine wine bar, Gruene, Texas).

750mL - Purchased at Whole Foods in Austin. Clear light yellow and bright colored. Floral sweet perfume nose, with light cream, buttery honey and a lavender note as well. Slightly spicy aroma compared to other meads I’ve tried. Flavor is bright, full, very active and almost cola-like at times… intensely sweet sugar everywhere, with lemons, honey and grassy flavors as well. It’s a bright and full-flavored mead, with more of a lemon emphasis than most, but the most striking thing is the sweetness up front – like everything was left unfermented. Spicy and prickly texture. Overall it’s a good mead – though different – but just too sweet.
