This kiwi mead is only 6 months young but I think it is my favorite so far. Not a lot of kiwi flavor but a good rounded feel to it. A bit acidic but in a good way.

Not as fancy or as clear as the recent posts, but here is my Caramel Apple Braggot, honey and caramel biscuit malt mated with clover honey and apple cider; finished way too dry so back sweetened with coconut tree sap. Delicious caramel apple in a glass!

A variant of jqgm. I used oceanspray mixed berry instead of welches, and backsweetened with 1 oz of honey and a 2oz the mixed berry plus 1 tbsp of undiluted peach concentrate. At 3 momths this is very drinkable and good. Kind of a fruit punch melomel.

I did 2 gal AJ / 2 lb orange blossom honey. Added a few tablespoons of homemade orange blossom tincture (vodka infused with macerated fresh blossoms) at bottling, and back sweetened with another lb of orange honey. Once the flavors melded, a week or so after bottling, it ended up being my best creation yet.

Here is a couple bottles of the batch of JOAM that I had going since mid February crystal clear for about a month maybe longer. 13% abv could really taste the clove.
