Hello, I need advice. I made 1 gallon of wild flower honey and citrus mead it has turned smelling and tasting like straight ethanol, 20%ABV what should I do?

You could try stabilizing and backsweetening to cover the alcohol. I would cellar it and try it next fall.

How long ago did you make it? 20% is probably going to take a long time to mellow. I have some 18% mead that was great the last bottle I had at the 16 year mark.
