In my experience, mead can be at its yuckiest at 7 months. They don't seem to get really good until a year or better yet two or better yet...well, you get the idea.
I bet time will help sort things out...
Oh don't give me none more of that Old Janx Spirit
No, don't you give me none more of that Old Janx Spirit
For my head will fly, my tongue will lie, my eyes will fry and I may die
Won't you pour me one more of that sinful Old Janx Spirit
