COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Benzai (13619) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2016
Sampled from mini mini growler-ish bottle [from trade with mnh9, thanks!] shared with kermis. Beautiful deep dark red to purple color, no head. Aroma is honey, floral, blossomy, red fruit. Taste honey, red fruits, sweet red and blue berries, sweet ripe red fruits mixed with honey and a nice floral note. Very well balanced mouthfeel and just very well balanced overall. Lovely!

ClubGonzo (5399) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2016
Sample from bottle, shared with X random people in the Cantillon BlŚbśr 2016 line in Copenhagen. :-) Pours a deep clear pink body with no head. Nose is strong raspberry notes, honey, red berries and hints of oranges and faint plums. Taste is raspberries, honey, rose petals and hints of plums, orange peel and faint traces of citric juice. Smooth, velvety mouthfeel. Very drinkable and with no alcohol touches at all. Delicious stuff.

Prufrockstar (1955) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 6, 2016
Bottle shared by Roger tonight. Thanks! Now I know what a melomel is, and also that these babies can be recorked and enjoyed over time. Unfortunately for whomever is reading this, I donít know a damned thing about mead (er, melomel), so expect no useful analysis here. Still ruddy brown pour. Amazing nose of honeyed raspberry jam. Quite sweet, with raspberries and floral overtones. Flavor saturates quickly, after it coats the mouth and throat. Overall: lovely.

thirdeye11 (6043) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 31, 2016
(750ml bottle) clear raspberry color, viscous and lots of legs. Nose is funky and mossy, tons of sweet honey and raspberry, perhaps even some pedio? A cherry nose reminiscent of charactere rouge. Taste of rich raspberry, white chocolate, honey, medium body, sweet, one dimensional and absolutely delicious.

phaleslu (9305) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 12, 2016
375 ml bottle split with Nick at The Brass Tap-U Square. Pours a mostly clear deep red with no head. Abundant layers of raspberry, honey, blueberry, and wildflowers, with suggestions of rose petals and plum. Medium-full bodied, with low carbonation and a sweet, tannic, smooth, coating mouthfeel. Lovely stuff. The fact that this is on shelves while people go nuts for the more limited stuff shows how crazy people have gotten. You have world-class stuff under your noses, people.
