Bright yellow straw color. Fruity aromas and flavors of peach cobbler, dried apricot, and golden raisin -gooseberry chutney with a velvety, tangy, off-dry medium-to-full body and a smooth, intricate, long honeyed spiced apple and orange and creme brulee finish. A satiny, elegant dessert style mead that drinks like a Beerenauslese.

Serve in a Goblet
Traditional meads should incorporate only honey as a fermentable ingredient, along with water and of course yeast. They can range in character from dry to semi-sweet to sweet, and may be sparkling or still. While not necessarily “traditional”, they may also be fortified and/or barrel-aged. Whether the honey used is a single varietal or a mixture, it is important for a successful traditional mead to evidence the floral nature of the honey; indeed, it should be the defining characteristic. Some acidity is often desired to balance sweetness, but this is not necessary. Lighter versions may be analogous to white wines of corresponding sweetness/dryness, but should present distinctly honeyed emphasis.
