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.

Very nice deep red color with a tart fruity scent. Tart dark fruit flavors. Leaves a really nice raspberry flavor on your lips after every sip. My first from Schramms and I definitely like it.

mcberko (6560) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 25, 2014
375mL bottle, pours a dark ruby red with basically no head. Nose is full of fresh sweet raspberries, with a touch of honey. Flavour is luxurious, full of fresh red ripe raspberries, light oranges, and lush honey in the background. The ABV is scarily well-hidden, leaving no burn whatsoever on the finish. What a marvelous mead. Another gem from Schrammís.

peteinSD (1377) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Bottle from Sean - thanks! Still, clear red in the glass. No head. Raspberry, honey, sweet sugar, and some light medicinal twang in the aroma. Rich, sugary raspberry and honey dominate the taste with an herbal twang toward the finish. Coating mouthfeel. Digging it; nice sipper.

deyholla (6660) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Bottle. Pours as clear deep red with a thin white head that dissipates quickly and completely. Aroma combines very tart raspberry and dry honey making it kind of wine like. Flavor begins with sweet raspberries that grow in tartness (to a kick in the finish) and supported by dry honey.

Dfonorow (1455) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 20, 2014
From bottle at Schrammís. Pour is deep purple/red with no head. Aroma and flavor of raspberries, blackberries, cherries, leather, oak, and vanilla. Finish has a bit more honey sweetness than the body. Good.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 22, 2014
375ml bottle courtesy of Rayl101. Pours a rich ruby/red wine color. Sticks to the side of the glass. Aroma is tart raspberry with some earthiness, honey and alcohol. Taste is sweet and fruity/jammy. Coats the mouth and has a sticky texture as would be expected. Not overly sweet though given the earthiness of the fruit. Delicious.
