this is a mead that is sold onley in triskel ( a fantasy-based, viking-style shop in antwerp ) its made in germany ( Aachener Wald ) withoud labels. the guy of the shop makes labels himself ( viking and website, 75 cl and 11 % is all thats on it ) so not much is known about it. accept for the fact this is a damn fine mead !

Bottle, courtesey of Kraddel, @ Rampkrot tasting. Pours a clear golden yellow, headless beer. Aroma of honey, spices and light grapes. Really full on the aroma. Flavour is intensly sweet, yet not sticky or boozy. Nice to try this one..

ClubGonzo (5416) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2013
Bottle @ Kraddel’s TdG 2013 tasting, Antwerpen. Pours a clear golden body with no head, as expected. Color looks good. Nose is port wine, chestnuts, biscuits and deep honey tones. Very nice. Taste is sweet syrupy honey tones, chestnut, hints of biscuits and dry wooden notes in the finish. Creamy mouthfeel. Pretty complex and nice, and a great alternative to sweet desert wine.

sebletitje (9268) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 23, 2013
Bottle courtesy of Kraddel @ Post Toer de Geuze tasting. Doré-couleur noisette, huileux sur le verre. Arôme est top avec ce bouquet sympa de miel, côté organique avec de suite un bouquet plus caramélisé presque noisette. Palais est ici aussi, doux, et ce côté noisette qui ressort bien sans être trop dérangeant. Le fleuri du miel arrive en fin de bouche et agrémente chaque gorgée.

kraddel (6175) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - NOV 27, 2012
UPDATED: APR 22, 2013 looks like a foamless, carbonationless lager. smells little alcohol, sweetness, tastes soft, balanced, way more drinkable and better than kurpiowski , wich is the onley other mead i had so far. i absolutely love this mystery factor of the mead.. its unlabeled and made by ’some guy’ in germany, the (only?) shop that sells it has to make labels himself, there’s onley the site of the store as tekst on it, so i named this after this same shop. Rerate ( from 3,8 ) its been open for half a year , and got even better . . Walnuts , complexer ,... Very nice !

UPDATED: APR 23, 2013 Hartelijk bedankt Kraddel hiervoor - 75 cl. geproefd - helder honing appelsap - zoete, lichte synthetische honing, was, kruidenthee, simpele witte suiker zoetheid - lichtjes bittere honing, wilde kruiden, kruidenthee, appelsap toets, was, witte suiker zoetheid, bijna hop-achtig op het einde, kruiden - minder vol dan andere mede tot nu toe, aangenaam, simpel, ok maar niet de top /// opnieuw gehad, zelfde fles als voorheen, vacuum bewaard, de smaak is opmerkelijk en eigenaardig zwaar op achteruit gegaan, de afdronk zit nu vol met kastanjes, heel lange blijvende kastanje bitterheid op het einde, leuk, score van 3.6 naar 4 verhoogd, maf
