mathieuc (1951) - Quťbec, 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 Schrammís!

sample from tom10101, thanks bro! an unclear dark burgundy pour showing off its legs. fragrant and almost perfumey blackberries, blackberry jam and honey spread - rich ripened plums, dried fruits; some tartness, lots of spices. flat carbonation, medium body - oily; micro-bubbly (!), semi-sweet, astringent, gently tart spicy-fruity finish. schrammís makes excellent/exceptionnal fruit meads: this one is very good.

2 oz sample from Tommy, thanks man! Apperance is a deep thick purple. Aroma is grapes, black berries, honey, and light vinious undertones. Taste is sweet blackberries, and honey,slighty dry finish, with a berry aftertaste. Very good mead, but not as much depth and complexity compared to the others Iíve tried from these guys. Still very good though.

tom10101 (3670) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2015
2 oz from bottle (375 ml)

Appearance: Deep purple, no head and little legs.

Aroma: Lots of juicy berries along floral-honey, red wine notes and light mineral presence.

Taste: Not very sweet. Burst of berries again with mild honeyed presence, red wine, earthy-mineral notes and cranberry juice.

Palate: Medium body. No bubbles, but it still tickles the tongue a bit. Surprisingly dry.

Overall: Not as much honey depth as most other Schrammís mead but still a really flavorful and tasty mead. Blackberry juice forward.
