Mon Cherry by ClubGonzo, Mead/Melomel, 13.1% ABV.
Mon Cherry is, believe it or not, brewed with cherries.
The colour of this mead is deep ruby red, and the body is clear. Beautiful!
I do get lot’s of cherries in the strong aroma, but they are a bit too overripe, bordering on rotten. The honey is also present in the background.
In the flavour the overripeness of the cherries isn’t that obvious, it’s actually quite pleasant. I also get cherry pits, in a pleasant almond-like way. There are also sweet traces of vanilla and a touch of spices. Interesting stuff! It has a pleasing sweetness and the alcohol is masterly integrated.
Conclusion: a complex and nice mead, once in the mouth.
