Well not officially a "mead", it is 30% mead 70% "malt beverage".
I ordered 3 of these 12.7 oz bottles. It is a product of Belgium and therefore a Lambic beer with mead.
It has a champagne cork and basket for real obvious reasons you will find out when opening. I almost put my eye out.
I barely had the basket off the cork and "blastoff!!"
Real bubbly. The taste is hard to describe. Sour, I think does it. Almost like the used Budweiser keg my local liquor store tried to sell me for a block party last 4th. It was bad.
I started to think it was infected or something but I understand Lambic beers are made with wild yeast.
Let's see if the other 2 get any better...........
