Dark red, clear, fairly thick. Heavy fruity smell, sweet, boozy, cherry, raspberry. Nice body, not too thick but soft and luscious, with a warming boozyness. Taste is rich and intense fruity jam, like we love from Schramms. Loads of cherry and raspberry.

Bottle @ Forstads Bryghus-share thanks to Erik! Pours dark red, still. Aromas of cherries, jammy raspberries, floral honey. Taste has lots of sweet raspberries, cherries, light acidic, almondy, vanilla, floral honey finish. Classic schramms. Fucking delicious.

Deutlicher Honiggeruch.Süffiger und weicher Beginn von Honig und Himbeeren. Moderat alkoholisch, cremig, der Alkohol nimmt zu und steigt über die Fruchtnoten. Vollmundig, spät trockener im Hintergrund, der Honig kommt stärker zum tragen. Süffig. 10/11/11/12/11/11

Another Schramm’s melomel that’s close to perfect. So god damn jammy with just enough honey character to make it interesting. Cherries & raspberries blend nicely adding plenty of dem #dimensions. Hint hot in alcohol & tannins. Give it 1-2 years & it’s a 5
