6.0% ABV, Bottle

Appearance: Red with no head.
Aroma: A bit like a sweet wine, with lots of fruit.
Taste: Berries — specifically cranberry and raspberry — along with cherry. Honey at the finish.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with not a lot of carbonation.

Fruit rings loud and clear in Acoustic’s JazZzBeRi mead. While it was very surprising that this mead hardly had any carbonation, the drink stayed true to its honey wine qualities, especially through its flavor, and provided for a smooth and easy drinking brew.

8.47% ABV, Bottle

Appearance: Cloudy amber with a small to medium head.
Aroma: Smells a bit sour with some honey.
Taste: Oaky with some caramel and fruit tones, followed by a sweet — but not overpowering — honey.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

New Holland’s Beerhive was the first honey beer I had ever tried, and by far it’s my favorite. The honey is sweet but still subtle, containing other flavors like caramel and fruit. It’s a refreshing, earthy, easy-drinking brew that has a crispness to it, but is still smooth on the finish.

6% ABV, Bottle
Appearance: Clear gold, with some bubbles upon initial pour.
Aroma: Some apples, cherry and honey. Smells a lot like a sweet white wine.
Taste: The honey shines throughout each sip, with some minor flavors of cherry and apples.
Mouthfeel: While this may seem to be light and crisp, the honey actually thickens it a bit.
Acoustic Draft Mead’s ‘honey BzZz is a refreshing take on a mead, and reminds me much more of a cider as opposed to the usual sweet mead. The honey flavors are very prevalent throughout each taste, making the drink seem to have a bit thicker of a mouthfeel. ‘honey BzZz holds some medium carbonation, and has a smooth finish. This definitely has to be one of the most well-balanced meads I’ve had, and is a good sipper during the summer season.
