Fresh, ripe red raspberries and orange blossom honey make this well-balanced mead leave you wanting glass after glass. As the first mead ever made by Ken Schramm, renowned author of The Compleat Meadmaker, raspberry mead holds a special place in our heart, and our cellar. Among the most long-lived of melomels, Schramm’s Raspberry will age well for ten years or more. Enjoy with grilled salmon or a slice of rhubarb pie.

375 ml bottle, wish it was in something bigger! Poured into a brandy snifter. The aroma has dry red wine like notes with big raspberry fruit juice sweetness. The taste is almost all raspberry juice, but there is that dry wine funk in there. Lightly syrupy body with no carbonation at all. This is just an all around awesome mead experience!

BMan1113VR (7896) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 9, 2015
Bottle. Pours with a still, mostly clear deep red hued body with strong legs. Aromas are of deep raspberry, almost woody, intensely perfumed, chocolate, raspberry seeds. Still strongly floral and zesty honey. Alcohol completely hidden. Flavors are of tart raspberry, zesty and floral honey, mild fruit tannins, great acid/sweet/tannin balance. Huge fruit notes yet the honey is still there. Really well done. Good heft to the body, still, no alcohol flavor.

This ones poured a Ruby red, still. Aroma of sweet honey, red wine, raspberries, and light booze. Flavor is.more raspberry forward than the aroma, not artificial at all but still showing that its a Mead. Good.

Bottle, thanks jack. Pours blood red. Nose is red wine and raspberry. Flavor is more jammy raspberry, light honey finish. Well balanced and not overly sweet. Another classic.

Red color with no head. Aroma is a nuclear bomb of raspberry straight into the nose! Taste is a nice balance between the honey and raspberry. Full body. Really, really good.

Bottle. Deep ruby liquid with no head and lots of lacing. Aroma of fresh raspberries, floral honey, very light booze, light herbs and light licorice. Taste is medium sweet with notes of raspberries, light licorice, raspberry candy and honey. Medium to full bodied with no carbonation. Really, really good. Lots of raspberry action.

czar (5207) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 9, 2015
bottle shared by tom10101, thanks bro! pours unclear dark pink, almost light burgundy, or rather beaujolais nouveau, with some legs sticking here and there. raspberry jam, vinous character, raisins, sweetness - never cloying, light slightly balancing tartness from fruit, woodsiness if not woody character, sweet tobacco and chocolate hints. flat carbonation, medium to full body - very syrupy, lightly astringent and sweet floral-spicy finish. very good and solid stuff!
