This earthy, brightly acidic mead balances the berries’ slightly smoky, plummy notes, a medium sweetness and the lingering tartness of this delicious bramble.

Very dark. Smell is heavy honey with the blackberry second. Very sweet and juicy blackberries. Almost a bit of smoke or earth or something there. Hint of tannic tartness is there on the back end. Top notch.

This new batch (#3) is amazing. They used 15% different blackberries in this batch (not sure why) and it is amazing. Very earthy and herbal. The first sip kinda tastes like weed, which is strange. Tons of blackberry (more so than the Raspberry). Awesome.

deep flavors, Deep aromas, delicious all the way around. Since apparently I am now telling everyone what I think I want to eat while drinking these, this is a great match for a baked cod and asparagus plate...

Dark purple, really nice earthy fruitiness in the nose, very seedy, jammy blackberry flavor.

375 ml bottle. The mead is a clear, dark purple color with no sign of carbonation. Great clarity. The aroma has strong blackberry sweetness and just a touch of acidity coming through to make it really seem like blackberries. Taste is somewhat acidic, but that berry sweetness is what dominates for me. Nice mead to sip on and savor. I would love to have this again some day.

Pour to plastic taster at Schramm’s. Looks good; a still semi-transparent black raspberry flesh. Smells and tastes good too; a great balance of blackberries and honey with some pleasant mild tartness on the back end. Mouthfeel is medium full-bodied. Great stuff.

mathieuc (2274) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 1, 2015
Pours a medium brown-ish red with some legs. Nose is of fruits, blackberries, blueberries and honey. Taste is of blackberries, slightly acidic and lightly sweet. Some warming alcohol but in a good way, makes you aware of the dangers of drinking too much. Finish is more ripe blackberries. Body is medium and mouthfeel lightly sticky but juicy mostly. Overall another solid melomel by Schramm’s!
