A Meadist review and rating of Kurts Apple pie, a cyser from Moonlight Meadery that brings sweet honey and apples together with vanilla and spices for a great dessert mead.
The Hopped Blueberry mead from Sap House Meadery comes in at 14.6% alcohol, but it is incredibly balanced and drinkable.
This deep purple Blueberry Melomel from Kuhnhenn Brewing company is like eating a mouthful of blueberries. I can’t decide whether thats a good thing or not.
The Hunter Mead from Orchid Cellar Winery is a delicious Capsicumel – a mead made with chili peppers which impart a great lingering heat that begs for another sip
Coming in at around $20 for a 375ml bottle, it is definitely worth the try due to its uniqueness in the marketplace – but its probably not one I’ll be going back to.
The Necromangocon is a mango & black pepper mead – another inventive and tasty offering from B. Nektar Meadery.
Artesano’s Traditional Mead a very nice offering from the Vermont meadery – smooth, sweet and very drinkable.
Everything about Superstition’s Berry White is intense, full-bodied and robust. It’s alike no mead i’ve ever tried, and incredibly delicious…This mead has soul.
The Lumberjack Cyser comes from Maryland’s Orchid Cellar Winery. It’s a warm dessert mead living up to the shape of the bottle. I definitely recommend enjoying on a cool fall or winter night next to a crackling fire – with wood you chop yourself, of course.
B. Nektar has taken the traditional Arnold Palmer (half lemonade, half iced tea) and “meadified” it. They seem to be having a lot of fun with their recipes, labels and descriptions. This playfulness produces exciting, creative and ultimately delicious results.
