A lighter burgundy red mead with aroma of sweet honey, light grape juice, light vinous character, very nice. In mouth, a wonderful sweet honey with funky grapeskin, oily mouth feel, winelike quality, alcohol warmth, very beautiful. Bottle at meadery.

Other than the off-putting and strong wine aroma, this is outstanding. Taste is way better than the aroma. Hints of syrah mixed with the honey. Great stuff. SlovakSniper (5561) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 5, 2016
Nez riche de raisins bleus, de mûres sauvages et de miel avec des fleurs et des effluves de vin de bleuets. Les saveurs fruitées sont délicieuses, bien entourées par un alcool de miel et ses belles nuances et subtilités. Le corps est celui d’un gros vin gras. La finale est douce, chaude et florale à souhait. Délicieuse réunion de flaveurs dans ce vin rouge au miel. czar (9802) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2016

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2016 Thanks to tom10101 for this rare treat! Pours a dark purple and completely still with some legs. Nose is of currants, Ontario blue raisins/grapes (not sure what these are called in english but you know these smaller, softer blue skinned grapes?) , honey, light booze and wine. Taste is more grapes with their skins, moderately sweet and slightly alcoholic but nowhere near 14% hot. Mouthfeel is where this truly shines: rich, dense, syrupy and a little sticky. Exactly what you’d expect from a honey-based beverage. Again, alcohol is felt but nothing bad. A really nice dessert, the rich honey and grapes are a match made in heaven! I might try to brew something like that someday. tom10101 (6344) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 12, 2016
Bottle from kbudd19, massive thanks! Deep purple leaving some nice legs on the glass. It’s my first Pyment so it’s a bit hard to judge but it’s totally grape forward and backed by a strong honey presence as well as a really nice blackberry presence. Taste is sweet but less than expected from the aroma, there’s again a strong grapes and a strong honey presence, alcohol is definitely there but not overly boozy, there’s interesting berries features, mild tartness as well as a mild spiciness. Medium to full body. Still. Super tannic mouthfeel. Grapey and honey finish with a nice alcohol warmth, never burning. I’m far from an expert with Pyment but I found this beverage to be elegant, multi-layered and never cloying. A damn fine wine/mead hybrid.
