fiulijn (21214) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 30, 2013
Bottle at Hydromel, rue de la Tour, Lausanne
Blond color. Strong aroma of honey, mead and some alcohol. The mouthfeel is quite sweet, not yet syrupy; immediately there is a strong alcohol feeling; polyfloral honey flavor, with a light ending bitterness and maybe some very light chemicals; there is a mellow feeling in the end that can be a hint of vanilla oak and fresh wood (ash tree), otherwise the cask aging is not evident.
An ordinary one, but still balanced and quite pleasant.
