In case you don’t already know, mead is made using honey. But don’t expect this can to taste like you’re washing down a shot glass of honey. Nope, this mead is uniquely complex and quaffable.
With notes of flower meadow and gravel dust, there’s a slight hint of honey, combined with melon and tropical fruit flavors. It actually tastes quite like a light beer but with a subtle sweetness on the finish.
Pair this wildflower mead with tropical fruit on a stick (think mango with chili powder), cool summer salads on hot days or an afternoon lounging on the bank of a river.
At this point, Author Meads are available in the Portland metro area, as well as SW Washington. Look for them at your local grocery store or bottle shop.
