Pappsüßses Zeug mit ordentlich viel Honig und dem eigentlichen Met in der Dominanz. Kirsche sind kaum auszumachen, ebensowenig rote Früchte. Alles in allem ganz ok.

Bottle. Claret with a brown hue - look like ol red wine, leaves a layer insted of legs though. Aromatic honey aroma, light heather, a hint cherry. Fruit juice intensifies on the palate, sweet cherry nectar first, then the honey shines through. Sweet, could have slightly more complex notes, but pleasant nonetheless.

Bottle, 75cl , courtesy of Papsoe. A clear, ruby pour leaves no head. Flat. Cherries, some heather and a good dash of honey in the aroma. The flavor is sweet and cherry-like, with cherry pits and some honey. Weak on honey actually. Overall, quite nice, but I prefer my meads to taste mead and not being dominated by cherries. 100814

Bottle from Marktkauf Wörth a.R.
Blond color, very pale. I didn’t had it cold, as I usually do. Aroma of wildflower honey and some alcohol. The flavor is very sweet, but the body is leaner than in other Meads, never syrupy; ther eis some honey flavor, but overall, nothing impressive; just a common, simple, drinkable, sweet Mead.

Ruby red color, dark. Light honey and cherry aroma. The flavor has the light astringency and sweetness typical of cherry juice, not much honey though. Pleasant sweet drink. Well, it’s not the worst cherry mead I had, but I would prefer if the German meaderies focused on straight mead.

Bottled. A light golden mead. The aroma has strong notes of honey and is quite sweet. The flavor is very sweet with notes of honey and rosehips. The alcohol leaves a light alcohol burn on the tongue and the mouthfeel is thick - a bit sticky.
