The nicest thing about Green River Ambrosia is that they are a meadery located in MA that uses local MA honey/bees. Awesome! That means I’m supporting local foods!
I recently heard about them, and how they have a variety of flavors. I was eager to get a chance to try their mead! I bought a few from a winery in Somerville.
Today, we’re reviewing Chamomile Mead.
When first opening the bottle, you can get a slight scent of the typical vinegary-smell I suppose you get when substances ferment.
UP close, however, the wine smells QUITE like liquid honey. What a pleasant surprise!
It has a crisp bite at the beginning and end (with teh liquor), and you can taste the honey punch in the middle that mellows it out. I think you can also taste honey and chamomile on the back of your tongue as you swallow.
I think I can taste a bit of fruit, too. :>
The temperature of the wine got warmer as time passed. I had a bite of a delicious-type of apple in between a few tastes.
The mood I got in was a happy high of liquor. Kinda happy and definitely tipsy.
Summation? Buy it. It’s worth having every once in awhile because its taste is memorable. However, it’s still quite sweet and may warrant a taste per month, or for a special dessert. (For me? Whenever I want. Screw dessert!)
