I dropped by Sap House Meadery to see what was going on. I knew there would be something interesting because Matt and Ash always have some new sort of awesome on their shelves. I wasn't disappointed.
The latest mead in their fantastic line up is Kombucha Style Mead.
This is the first I've heard of Kombucha. What I discovered is that Kombucha is a fermented sweet tea that is considered a super food. It is said to detoxify the body and energize the mind.
Well, I don't know anything about that, but the mead was amazing.
Like most mead, Kombucha is sweet. But the style and flavor is very different from Sap House's other offerings. It has an alcohol content that is fairly low for mead - 7.5% ABV. Kombucha Style mead is lighter than most and somewhat dry. There is a wonderful tartness that carries through from sip to finish that lingers.
There is a perfect balance of flavors that makes this a perfectly bee-rific honey wine.
