An alcoholic beverage created by fermenting honey with water, sometimes with various fruits, spices, grains, or hops. The alcoholic content of mead may range from about 8% ABV to more than 20%. The defining characteristic of mead is that the majority of the beverage's fermentable sugar is derived from honey. It may be still, carbonated, or naturally sparkling; and it may be dry, semi-sweet, or sweet.
Traditionally bright yellow to gold in colour, with an aroma and flavour that’s spicy and fruity/estery, with a sweet finish. The use of Belgian candy sugar lightens the body and gives the beer complexity.
