Fermented honey and water are combined with European black currant to make this traditional melomel style mead. The rich flavour of black currants is surprisingly apparent in this gently carbonated refreshing drink. Try it straight up or with ice. For a change of pace, try black currant mead poured over a frozen dessert such as ice cream or sherbert.

    650ml bomber freshly filled. Gives a lovely clear ruby-orange color in the glass. No cap and mild carbonation Aromas of musty honey and fresh berry fruit. Not sweet as you may expect..has some beer-like graininess to it and the fresh berry juice tastes are tart filling in for the hops in beer which balance the sweet tastes ( syrup? honey?)...has a fruity sweet and sour decernement to it with a touch of maltiness...certainly different than cider..alcohol is well covered in the tastes...I could drink this instead of wine with patio food.

    "I hate to make this review while being so inexperienced with mead. Im glad to have waited well into my beer tastings before starting to review. My knowledge, appreciation and tastes changed (and still are changing) the more I understood and sampled different styles of beer from different parts of the world. Our selection of mead in this province is limited to these Trafalgar thus I have no real basis for comparison, nor much experience to fall back on, but that being said...
    Arguably my favourite of Trafalgars original three meads. Though it carries a more "grape" (think freezies, or 'drink' boxes) flavour than authentic fruit berry blend it still complemented the honey very nicely. Pours a very sleek looking dark purple colour. At 9% alcohol is considerably hidden and the drink is very well balanced. A very tasty braggot.
