A tasteful update to mans oldest wine. Crafted in the style of a semi-dry wine, Trapper Creek Pure Honey Mead offers the mellowness of honey with a hint of sweetness. Try it by itself or with lighter dishes like fish or fowl. Best served at room temperature or slightly chilled. Made from pure Montana honey.

UPDATED: NOV 7, 2016 Drank slightly chilled out of a wine glass. My first mead, was hoping it would be better, as I really enjoy honey. However, it tastes mostly like a white wine with a little bit of honey in it. Might be a good mead, I dont know. I just am not very fond of wine. I bought a three-pack from their winery and hopefully their darker meads will taste better.

Blond color. Mild aroma, wax and some wine. Semi-dry mouthfeel, glue, wine, some bitterness in the final.
In Germany they sell mead like this for 3 euros. Not good.

Some haze, has a little sweet honey character, with a bit of toasty character, so its not the greatest.

750mL bottle, pours a hazy dark-ish golden yellow with a few bubbles. Aroma brings out medium sweet honey and moderate acidity. Flavour is quite thin, with lots of acidity, citric notes and mellow honey. Nothing offensive, but its not a complex or elegant mead. Meh.

More similar to a rich dessert wine this is fruity, dense, and hard to finish after a few beers. Perhaps if it were all I opened with dinner I might be able to finish it. As it is drinking more than about a half pint was tough. Thanks to Travlr for sharing.

Aroma / Appearance - Creamy vanilla legs crawl down the sides as you would expect from a high gravity mead. The flat base and transparent golden body release thick waves of honey and creamy alcohol. This is filling just from the nose alone.

Flavor / Palate - Vanilla and honey cling to the corners of the palate. Sticking to the tongue like syrup this is so rich that it is borders on cloying. A vinous finish adds nice depth. Overall though I wish I would have had a vacuum seal to recork it and finish the bottle the next day.

Bottle shared by Travlr. Pours still clear yellow. Aroma is honey, straw and earthy notes. Flavor is medium sweet honey, light spices and a sweet finish. Full body.

Bottle. Crystal clear very pale yellow color. Aroma is very floral, lots of perfume. Taste is also floral, just an edge if sweetness, dryish finish. Tasty.

My first mead! I love honey and honey products so I thought it was about time to give a mead a shot and one that focused on honey. Being my first, I really dont have anything to compare it to so I tried to rate as fairly as I could. The aroma is a dry, alcohol with the sweet honey notes. Obviously no head or lace but as with a wine, the legs it left on the glass were crazy. Color was a nice, golden hue. The flavor was similar to the aroma. Dry, warming alcohol with honey sweetness. What else would you expect from one listed as "pure honey" mead? Very smooth finish.
