A Note on This Beer
Paste Mag, Hop Culture, and Esquire all agree on one thing: Michigan-based Schramm’s Mead is crafting some of the very best Meads available anywhere!
And today, we’re sharing a rare opportunity to taste two of their most sought-after offerings. Every previous version of these Meads has earned a 4.5+ score on Untappd. That is truly an incredible feat. What makes them so special?
Let’s start with Heritage Raspberry.
The Mead masters at Schramm’s added a literal ton of Heritage raspberries to this honey wine, and those fresh-picked berry notes flow through every sip.
That’s far from the end. In Schramm’s skilled hands, the raspberry notes are transformed into something altogether more complex and interesting. Let a sip linger on the tastebuds, and you might discover nuances of Pinot Noir, cranberry, and ripe plum. What you won’t detect is the 12.5% ABV.
Red Agnes is just as impressive. With its glowing, ruby-red hue, this honey wine is enchanting before the cork even leaves the bottle!
Once those deep, floral aromatics from a carefully balanced addition of red currants come billowing out, it’s positively spellbinding.
Each sip features a beautiful acidity that plays extraordinarily well against the honey sweetness and red fruit notes. On the finish, floral nuances linger as the sweetness fades. It’s so smooth and drinkable, you’ll have to keep reminding yourself that it comes with a 12% ABV.
If you’re new to Mead, these highly sought after examples will make a truly incredible introduction. If you’re already a fan of honey wine, you probably already have an idea of just how special these bottles are.
