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, Schrammís Raspberry will age well for ten years or more. Enjoy with grilled salmon or a slice of rhubarb pie.

Aroma is wonderful, raspberry, tart and sweet, skins, really good. Appearance is dark red, clear. Taste is raspberry, booze, bitter and dry then sweet, harsh. Mouthfeel is syrupy, bitter raspberry skins aftertaste. Overall, this one could be better.

On draft at Schrammís. The pour is a nice deep ruby color with a coupl bubbles of light pink around the edge of the glass. The aroma is incredibly jammy. There is a ton of fruit and a lot of honey here. There is no dryness that I was expecting. Itís rather good, but completely one dimensional. There is a bit of booze on the back end as well. The flavor is also jammy. Lots of overly sweet fruit and a ton of honey. There is a strong booziness to this one on the finish. Itís definitely not as smooth as some of the others. The mouth feel is definitely mead like. Itís thin for what Iíd like here. Itís well balanced with fruit and honey through the flavor, but it does finish a little boozy and a touch thin. The raspberry isnít as jammy, but is a good beverage.

December 25, 2015. Bottle.
Clear deep ruby red with no head. Aroma is sweet and fat with raspberry jam, floral honey, some dark berries and hints of alcohol and leafs. Taste is sweet up front, light acidity and hints of alcohol. Finish is sweet honey and raspberries, acidic berry notes with a light dryness. Medium to full bodied, oily texture with a dry finish, no carbonation.
Great berry notes, a bit more acidity in the finish than expected but it makes it more easy drinkable.

We originally liked this better than the cherry version. A couple days later, I flipped it as cherry more drinkable. Raspberry tartness soon overpowered by sweetness.
