A Note on This Beer
Did you know that Untappd’s #3-ranked brewery on the planet isn’t a brewery at all?
It’s Michigan’s Schramm’s Mead! Everyone from Hop Culture to Esquire agrees these honey wine specialists are among the best in the biz.
If you're wondering why Schramm’s creations are held in such high regard, look no further than today’s Marionberry (Batch 4).
To craft this juicy, tannic Mead, Schramm’s started with a base made with orange blossom honey for earthy sweetness and a kiss of citrus. Then, they loaded it up with Marion blackberries transported over from Oregon’s Willamette Valley!
Whether you enjoy its sweet sips now or let it mellow with age, the masterful complexity in this Mead is clear. Allow a mouthful to linger on the tongue, and you may find yourself raving about the jammy waves of berry juice and natural fruit acidity balanced with the honey.
You won’t be alone! Local tasters praise Marionberry as a supreme expression of the style:
- “Delicious liquid jam.” @ Jon S.
- “Smooth, sweet, and dangerous. Tastes like a high-quality blackberry grape juice with honey syrup (in the best way possible).” @James M.
- “Just pure excellence in a bottle. Do these guys even make a bad Mead? If so, I’ve yet to find it.” @Adam D.
