Medium light gold color. Bold, attractive, baked aromas of bananas foster and buttery strawberry waffles with whipped cream with a velvety, vibrant, moderately sweet medium-to-full body and a smooth, nuanced, long honey butter finish. A wonderfully flavorful and delicious off dry mead that is flowing with fruit.

Melomel

Melomel is a traditional mead to which fruit has been added. The fruit character is the driver here, and whether dry or sweet should be very evident. Key here is a natural, ‘off-the-vine’ evocation rather than any suggestion of artificial flavorings.
