COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A missprint on the label and possible missing sticker has created a confusion that "Vintersol" has existed as a 13.2% ABV version, the mead has ever only been produced as a 9.8% ABV one.

Denna oerhört spännande dryck är tillverkad av över 900 kg blåbär från västerbottens skogaroch 170 kg honung från östra Norrland i regi av Niklas Gotthardsson. Till både smak och utseende påminner den kraftigt om ett rött vin, självfallet med starka blåbärstoner. Receptet kanske liknar ”Höströd”, men som dryck är det här en helt annan historia. Nattsvart och torr, som de kalla långa vinternätterna. Denna dryck passar ypperligt till rött kött, vilket är ovanligt för mjöd.

fiulijn (20492) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle, tasting event at Mikkeller and Friends, Copenhagen
Dark ruby hazy color. The aroma if blueberry wine is intense. Dry mouthfeel, some blueberry flavor, red wine, moderate acidity, some final astringency; but the body is weak, and there is no mead flavor.

2.5
Staffan47 (909) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2013
Direkt efter en brutalt söt mjöd vilket kanske inte var så lyckat. Får den här att smaka som ett surt rödvin. Inte helt säker på att den skulle vara så sur om man testade den igen. Får vara beredd att re-ratea denna. SBWF 2013

oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 28, 2013
[email protected] Deep amber, with almost some violet nyances to it. No head. Aroma is honey, quite a bunch of blueberries and some slight floral notes. Flavour was surprisingly dry and tart, but otherwise rather similar to the aroma. Wellbalanced, and actually lacking the real big sweetness of meads, this one would probably suit food quite well.
