Dusty yellow straw color. Aromas of wintermint, pine blossom, granola, and tea and tobacco leaves with a lightly tannic, crisp, fruity light body and a smooth, interesting, medium-length coconut water, starfruit and jicama, and lemon honey tea finish. A very interesting honeyed tea like mead that drinks like a fine riesling.

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.
